(Sioux Center, Iowa) A three-hit pitching performance by Kacy Oberfoell helped the Dordt College Defender softball team to a 6-1 win over the College of Saint Mary Flames on Friday afternoon in Sioux Center, Iowa.

Dordt College banged out ten hits in the win, scoring two in the third on three hits with Ashton Beaird knocking in Shantelle Gritters from third with a ground out and Oberfoell scored Kaitlyn Lockhorst with a single.

The Flames got one run in the fourth to make it 2-1 but the Defenders buckled down and scored three runs on four hits in the fifth inning for some breathing room. Lockhorst singled in Gritters who started the frame with a single and stole second and Oberfoell doubled in a run later in the inning and Megan Huizenga finished the scoring in the frame with a single. A run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Brittany Kooiker finished the scoring for the Defenders and the 6-1 win.

Oberfoell struck out eight and walked none while allowing one unearned run and three hits. Lockhorst had two hits with a run scored and a run batted in. Oberfoell had two hits with two runs batted in and Shantelle Gritters scored two and was 2-2 at the plate.

The Flames starting pitcher, Jessika Reyes, was saddled with the loss and surrendered five runs--three of them earned and struck out four with no walks.

Dordt improves to 11-14 while the Flames are 6-13 after game one of the doubleheader.
