Dordt College JV Women's Basketball vs. Briar Cliff
November 14, 2011
(Sioux Center, Iowa) The Dordt JV women’s season got off to a rough start Monday night as they fell to winless Briar Cliff 92-72.
In a game that was sloppy all around, the Defenders struggled mightily to take care of the basketball, giving away 33 turnovers, 26 of which were due to Briar Cliff steals.

The Defenders only led once at 3-0. Briar Cliff then went on a 10-0 run to take an early edge. Dordt actually battled back to tie the score at 14, but could not ever regain the lead. The score was 34-29 in favor of Briar Cliff at halftime.
A bright spot on the night for Dordt was Caroline Reinders who sent in 22 points, including a trio of 3-pointers. Braunschweig, 12, and Wybenga, 11, also entered double figures. Forward Kacy Oberfoell led the way with 10 rebounds.
