Dordt defeats Dakota Wesleyan 3-2


The Dordt College Defender men’s soccer team earned a dramatic, last-second win over the Daktoa Wesleyan Tigers on Saturday afternoon in Sioux Center.

The first half of the contest as played in a steady rain with Wesleyan getting a goal from  Gage Pemberton in the 39th minute and that score stood to halftime.

The second half scoring started with a Garrett Goodson goal in the 51st minute to tie the game.

Less than five minutes later the Defenders took the lead on an Eric Bourdo goal but Wesleyan tied it at 2-2 just a little over two minutes later in the 57th minute.

The score remained 2-2 until the closing moments when the Defenders had a corner kick with 11 seconds remaining.  After several shots on goal Bourdo fired the game winner in with one second remaining.  Bourdo’s shot was set up by a Dakota Wesleyan player’s deflection and came from about ten yards out.

“It was a wild finish, just wild! I have never seen a frantic 90th minute like that—a corner kick, a flying save by the keeper, us hammering it off a defender, then Eric pounding it in with one second left. It was really fun and was a great way to cap the weekend. Their keeper was tremendous. We had three guys that had not played in the first half play critical roles in the second. It was a finish you had to see to believe.”
