COACH STIEMSMA SAYS
"Dakota Wesleyan played a smart game and had a good game plan. We had several great opportunities especially in the second half. It was a tremendous effort by our defense as a whole and Jack McCool also played well. Dakota Wesleyan was able to win a lot of 50-50 balls and spoil a lot of our good attempts going to goal," said Dordt College coach Craig Stiemsma.
