COACH STIEMSMA SAYS
“We played a lot better in the second half,” said Dordt coach Craig Stiemsma. “We had trouble stringing together passes in the first half and gave up too many corners which ultimately led to a goal. Jamestown survived a relentless onslaught in the last 12 minutes where we had several dangerous opportunities. It was hard fought to say the least.”
-Dordt will try to stop a three game winless streak when they host GPAC favorite Hastings on Saturday, September 26. Dordt is currently 3-3.
