CLEVELAND, Ohio - Kaila Sargema scored a goal late in the first half to lift Cleveland State to a 1-0 victory over Niagara on Saturday afternoon at Krenzler Field in an exhibition match.
Sargema took a cross from McKenna Vento right in front of the goal and knocked in what proved to be the game-winning goal. Vento, a freshman, finished up a strong preseason, which included a goal in Tuesday's win at Buffalo.
Sargema's goal came with 4:01 to play in the first half.
The Vikings open the 2015 regular season on Friday (Aug. 21) when CSU hosts Butler at 7:00 p.m. at Krenzler Field. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
