Dordt College JV Women's Basketball vs. Buena Vista

November 25, 2013

(Sioux Center, Iowa) By Sam Ekstrom, Dordt College Sports Information Student Assistant

A last-second three by Buena Vista’s Lexie Moreno stunned the Defenders 68-65 in a non-conference junior varsity game Monday night.

With the game tied at 65, Moreno stepped back at the top of the key and drained her fourth 3-pointer of the night with eight seconds left. Dordt’s final possession resulted in a Paige Engbers heave that fell short at the buzzer.

Moreno was the game’s leading scorer with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Buena Vista only shot 31 percent for the game, but snatched up 17 offensive rebounds to get some key baskets underneath.

Dordt shot 42 percent in the first half to take a 32-26 lead into the locker room. Unfortunately for the home team, the lead didn’t hold against the scrappy Beavers, who forced the Defenders into nine second-half turnovers.

Dordt’s Shae De Jager carried the Defenders with a double-double. The freshman contributed 14 points and 16 rebounds, including 5-of-6 shooting from the free-throw line in the second half.

Engbers, the Defenders’ highest scorer on the season, finished with 11 points.

Dordt fell to 1-6 and Buena Vista improved to 1-1.

The Defenders get a week off before taking the floor Dec. 2 against Morningside.
