GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Heidelberg University women's soccer team fell from the ranks of the unbeaten following a 3-1 loss at Calvin College on Saturday. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Student Princes -- marking their best start since 2000.

Three of the game's four goals came in a 2.5 minute flurry early in the first half. Calvin's Emily VanVeldhuisen headed a shot past HU netminder Alexandra Farmer for a 1-0 lead at 13:39.

Erica Campbell slotted a left-footed poke past Calvin's Amy Kliewer to tie the match at the 15:01 mark. Campbell's goal -- her third of the season -- came as she sprinted onto a through-ball from captain Darby Moloney.

Calvin countered 54 seconds later as Camie Rietberg tapped home a rebound off a restart by Emily Van Vliet.

The Knights added an insurance goal midway through the second half as Sydney Barcey headed a shot past Farmer on a cross by Bekah Maguire.

Calvin outshot Heidelberg 14-7. Farmer made five saves in the losing effort.

The Student Princes return to action on Tuesday. HU travels to Wooster (1-0-2) for a 5 p.m. showdown. Heidelberg won the 2016 matchup, 4-2.
