COACH STIEMSMA SAID

“Northwestern and Dordt both played up-tempo high pressure fast paced today- and that made for a lot of chances and a fun match to watch.  Jack McCool was great in goal today even in a loss. I felt like we did a lot of things really well, and played very, very hard- and that led to some excellent opportunities.  Give Northwesterncredit- they were able get a lead, and then hang on to it over the last 15 minutes,” Dordt College coach Craig Stiemsma.
