COACH STIEMSMA SAYS
“It was a very fast game with lots of running up and down. We had good possession but so did they. We showed a ton of heart in the end,” said Dordt College coach Craig Stiemsma. “I thought there was a hand ball in the box in the last ten minutes by Morningside but it didn’t get called. That’s tough to take. We showed a ton of heart in the end.”
