Dordt pushed out to a 12-5 lead midway through the first quarter on a Faith Anderson three-point basket with 6:56. The lead was the largest Dordt would enjoy and the lead was still six after Ebby Prewitt made a free throw with 4:08 left in the quarter for a 17-11 advantage.
Hastings responded with a 9-0 run before a Rachel Evavold basket made it 20-19 and Hastings added to the lead with a three-point basket just before the quarter ended for a 23-19 advantage.
Dordt scored the first point of the second period on a free throw by Kenzie Bousema with 9:16 remaining but Dordt went quiet on offense after that with Hastings going on a 16-0 run that didn’t end until the 2:11 mark when Rachel Evavold got a basket to go.
Dordt trailed 46-28 at halftime after Siennah Stamness scored on a three-point basket to end the half.

COACH LINDBERGH SAID
“Against top teams in the GPAC and against top teams in the NAIA you need four good quarters of play and we didn’t have that today. I thought we showed some good fire and intensity in the first quarter and in the third quarter—that’s the best we’ve started coming out but it was not a complete game from us. To win these GPAC games you need complete games and we just didn’t have that tonight.”
