(Storm Lake, Iowa) Four late runs allowed the Buena Vista Beavers to take a 4-1 decision from the Dordt College Defender softball team in game one of their doubleheader in Storm Lake on Thursday afternoon.
Dordt got on the board with an Ashton Beaird homerun in the top of the first inning with two outs for a 1-0 lead that held up until the bottom of the fifth inning when the hosts scored one run on two hits. Dordt's Kacy Oberfoell averted a huge inning by retiring the Beavers with the bases loaded in the frame.
Dordt missed a chance to unlock the tie in the sixth inning by stranding two runners with Beaird and Huizenga getting singles in the inning. Buena Vista then broke through with three runs on one hit and a Dordt error to take control and held the Defenders off in their last at-bat, allowing one runner to reach via error.
Oberfoell took the loss and was charged with one earned run of the four scored and struck out six while walking five. She surrendered four hits while Dordt banged out five. Beaird had three of Dordt's five hits, a homerun and a pair of singles while Huizenga and Paige Fynaardt each had singles for the Defenders.
