HOW IT HAPPENED
The Dordt College Defender women’s soccer team went on the road to defeat Jamestown 3-1 with all the scoring coming in the first half.

The Defenders kept the pressure on with a Le Duc goal in the 29th minute off a Kenzie Bousema helper. Jamestown got on the board with a goal in the 35th minute by Lateasha Hughes.
Both teams had four shots on goal in the second half but couldn’t get it across and the halftime score stood as the final.
