Game Media

(Sioux Center, Iowa) Dordt finished their play in the Clash in the Corn tournament in dominating fashion defeating the University of Wisconsin-Platteville by an 8-2 margin.

The victory gave the Blades the 2nd place trophy in the tournament as they finished with a 2-1 record, losing to Calvin and beating Wyoming and UWP. Calvin skated away with the Cob Cup as they went 3-0 on the weekend to claim the top spot.

Bakker led out the scoring in the first period as he netted his 17th goal of the season at the 3:52 mark on an assist from Prins. A minute and a half later Blades defenseman Jared Rempel would add to the lead burying a power play slap-shot from the blue line to give the Blades a 2-0 advantage going in to the intermission.

Kevin Prins would score his 16th of the season, also on the power play, to get the Blades going in the second period. Jake Liedtke scored for the Pioneers with 17:20 remaining in the second to make the score 3-1. Matt Chesla would give the Blades a 3 goal advantage once again when he scored with 15:22 remaining on an assist from Prins. Jordan Janz, who has been playing hurt, would get on the board at the 12:07 mark with helpers going to Rempel and Prins (his 3rd assist on the night).

Landgraff would lead off the scoring in the third cutting the lead to 5-2. That would be as close as UWP would get as Dordt scored 3 unanswered goals in the 3rd period. Woudstra scored his team leading 23rd goal of the season with 8:30 remaining from Janz and Bakker. Blue-liner Jon VanKeulen would score for the second night in a row when he tallied at the 7:50 mark on an assist from Brandon Breukelman. The final goal of the night and his second for the game would go to Matt Chesla on an assist from Jordan Janz.

Dordt outshot the Pioneers by a 43-23 margin. Ted Gibbons made 21 saves for the Blades while giving up 2 goals on the evening.
