HOW IT HAPPENED
Two early first half goals were all the Dordt College men’s soccer team could muster in their 2-2 double overtime tie against Mount Marty on Tuesday.
Mika De Vin broke the deadlock in the 14th minute. Mount Marty failed to clear a corner kick out of their own penalty area and the ball fell at the feet of De Vin for an easy finish.
Ten minutes later Gideon De Graaf capped off a Dordt counter attack with a breakaway goal. Colton Schreur played a driven ball across the box that set De Graaf up with a one-on-one with the Mount Marty goalkeeper.
Mount Marty’s Talles Ribeiro scored in the 24th minute on a breakaway due to a poor clearance by the Dordt defense. Four minutes later, Ribeiro scored his second of the match off an assist from Santiago Peniche.
The tie gives Dordt a 1-3-1 record in conference play.
Mount Marty outshot Dordt 15-10 overall and 8-4 in shots on goal.
There were seven yellow cards and one red card handed out in the match.
Dordt goalkeeper Seth Lewison had six saves in the game.
