Conference Match



Northwestern def. Dordt 3-1



The Dordt Defenders survived an initial attack by Northwestern in their women’s soccer contest but surrendered two quick goals after tying the game in the second half to lose 3-1 on a cool and breezy afternoon in Sioux Center, Iowa. 

Northwestern attacked quickly with a goal in the third minute by Sarah Homan but the Defenders recovered and got to halftime down 1-0.

Kenzie Bousema’s unassisted goal in the 60th minute tied the game but Northwestern had a quick response, scoring on a Madeline Swift goal in the 61st minute and then Tatiana Garcia scored less than a minute later to extend the lead to 3-1 and Dordt never got the offense going against a Northwestern team that had not surrendered a goal in conference play before the October 12 contest.



Dordt was outshot overall 16-12 and on goal 8-6.

Dee Felts had five saves for the Defenders.

Both teams had a corner kick.

Bousema’s goal was her sixth of the season.

Dordt is 2-3 in the GPAC and 6-6-1 overall while Northwestern improves to 5-0 in the GPAC and 9-4 overall.

Dordt will host Concordia on Saturday at 1:00.
