Dordt College Blades Hockey vs. Iowa State
February 6, 2010
(Away) The Dordt Blades finished off their road trip to Ames with a strong showing as they beat the Cyclones 5-0 after having lost to the conference opponent 3-2 the previous night.
Neither team was able to find the back of the net over the first 20 minutes of play and Dordt broke the deadlock with 6 minutes and 27 seconds to go in the second period when Jordan Janz tallied his 21st goal of the season. That would be the only goal over the first two periods and the Blades entered the second intermission with the 1-0 lead.
With 11:16 on the clock Janz netted his second of the night and 22nd of the season to give the Blades a 2 goal cushion. Four minutes later Nate Woudstra would knock in his 25th marker of the year to give Dordt the 3-0 lead. With the Cyclones netminder pulled for the extra skater Dordt pocketed two more goals, with Woudstra and Janz each getting one, to get the 5-0 win and a hat trick for Jordan Janz.
Ted Gibbons posted the shut-out victory while making 23 saves for Dordt. ISU's Jack Rice had 33 saves in the loss.
