HOW IT HAPPENED

The Dordt College men’s soccer team fell behind 2-0 to Northwestern in the first five minutes of their match on Wednesday and could never recover. The Red Raiders walked away with a 6-0 victory.

Ben Hengst found the back of the net off of a bouncing ball in the 18-yard box one minute into the match. Tyler Limmer scored his first of the game two minutes later to stretch the lead to two.

Dordt shut Northwestern down for the rest of the first half. The Defenders had an opportunity to pull within one off of a Colton Schreur header late in the first, but it ricocheted off of the crossbar and out of the penalty area.

Limmer scored his second of the game in the 50th minute to stretch the Northwestern lead to three. Four minutes later, Felipe Gontijo finished an Anselmo Kim assist and upped the lead to four.

Felipe Gontijo assisted a Liam Stoddard goal in the 60th minute to give the Red Raiders a 5-0 lead. Ryan Wagner finished a breakaway in the 90th minute to cap off the scoring.

The loss dropped Dordt’s conference record to 2-7-1. The Defenders are currently in 9th place and have a high likelihood of missing the GPAC tournament for the first time in three years.
