You always want to start off the new season with a win, especially with your biggest rival. Unfortunately for the Dordt Women’s JV Basketball team, this was not the case in their season opener against Northwestern.

The Defender Women started their season Wednesday night falling to the Red Raiders 72-61. The Red Raiders got out to a 6-0 lead in the beginning of the game and never looked back. Not to say that this game wasn’t competitive. Both teams had many fouls and turnovers early on, but it was the first game of the season. Both teams settled down later in the game. It seemed as if the Defenders were on a rollercoaster as they were as close as 3, and as far behind as 14.

One of Dordt’s many upswings was fueled by the play of Bethany Hulst who contributed 19 points with a majority of them coming late in the first half. Dordt cut the lead to 3 at half, but it seemed that the Northwestern guards were too much to handle and the Red Raiders started to put the game out of reach. Mackenzie Small and Madison McKinstrey finished with 20 and 19 points respectively. The quick-footed guards seemed to be the downfall of the Defenders as Small and McKinstrey threw the Red Raiders on their backs and carried them to a win in the season opener.

One thing that both teams did very well Wednesday night was shoot free throws. The Dordt Women went 17-23 from the charity stripe and the Red Raiders went 15-19.
