"Ouch!!!" commented Dordt College coach Chad Hanson at the conclusion of the match. "Not for the loss but for the way we didn't play. We are learning that a quiet and hesitant pursuit will often result in an undesirable outcome. We will definitely need to bring the right focus to our evening match versus Lewis Clark State."
The Defenders will face Lewis Clark this evening and will play Viterbo (Wisconsin) and Benedictine (Kansas) on Saturday.
