(Sioux Center, Iowa) By Jeremy Engbers, Dordt College Class of 2014

The Dordt College JV Women’s Basketball team was looking for revenge on Thursday night as they faced their rivals, the Northwestern Red Raiders. Unfortunately for the Defenders, they fell short to the Raiders in an 84-68 decision in the GPAC junior varsity conference game.

Northwestern started out the exact same way that they had in Dordt’s season opener on November 3rd when the Defenders fell 61-72. The Red Raiders started out the game on an 8-0 run and there was no looking back. Northwestern went up 39-29 at half with the help of Mallory Cunard. Cunard had 11 first half points, including two three-pointers, and finished with a game high, 25 points. Northwestern then opened up the second half with an 11-0 run. The game seemed to be a blowout, but the Defenders still had some fight in them. They proceeded to go on a 16-0 run led by the play of Hanna Van Dyk and Kayla Broekhuis. Van Dyk became a force down low, finishing with a team-leading 16 points with 14 coming in the second half. Broekhuis also contributed with two second half threes. Broekhuis finished with 14. Northwestern put a stop to the Defenders run and continued to dominate the rest of the game and continue on to victory.

A positive coming from the Defenders was the free throw shooting of the Defenders. Dordt sunk 13 of 17 chances from the line. Bekah Posthuma had just recently joined the Defender women’s basketball team. She finished with 11 in her debut game. Kristen Scholten also scored 10 off the bench.
