Dordt defeats Park 2-1
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Dordt Defender softball team earned its second sweep in as many days with a 2-1 win over the Park Pirates on Saturday afternoon in Parkville, Missouri.
The Defenders got a run in the first with Corinne May getting the only hit of the inning, a single, and Marissa Vanden Berg reached on a walk.
Vanden Berg singled to start the third and Jennifer Kooiker pinch ran for her and scored on a Rachel Evavold single.
The 2-0 lead proved to be enough for Dordt starter Marlia Mundorf as she allowed two hits in the first inning before giving up another two in the seventh when Park scored one run. Park had the tying run at first base when the inning and game ended.
