HOW IT HAPPENED

Dordt battled the no. 2 ranked Grand View Vikings in non-conference volleyball on Tuesday night in Sioux Center.  The 3-0 win was the second for Grand View over Dordt this season.

The Defenders fought to a 7-7 tie in set one after a kill by Ryan Postma.  Grand View pushed in front 11-7 and maintained a 16-10 lead.  The Defenders were unable to make a serious challenge down the stretch and the Vikings took set one 25-16.

Set two saw the Defenders run off three straight points with a service error and two straight attack errors by the Vikings to get within 10-8.  Four straight points by the Vikings re-established order for the Vikings and Dordt got as close as four on two different occasions before falling 25-19.

Set three was the most competitive of the night.  Grand View led 11-7 but four straight points by the Defenders tied it as Ben Tiemersma had a service ace in the run and Danny Beaton put a kill away to tie it.  Dordt scored four in a row to take a 19-17 lead but the Vikings had an answer with four points in a row and never trailed again.  An attack error tied it 22-22 but back to back Viking points put them at match point and the teams exchanged points to finish 25-23.
