November 6, 2010

(Sioux Center, Iowa) The Dordt College Defender women's basketball team improved to 2-0 to start the 2010-2011 season with a 76-69 win over Jamestown (North Dakota) on Saturday afternoon at the De Witt Gym. The loss was the second in as many nights for the Jimmies who trailed the entire game.

Jamestown continued to hang around and cut the lead all the way down to six on three different occasions--the last time with under a minute left. The Jimmies actually got to within five but there wasn't enough time to mount a credible threat with 00:06 left.

Soodsma ended up with 21 points and moves to second all time in scoring with 1330 points, trailing Lisa Roos's 1414.
