For the second day in a row the Dordt Defenders softball team earned a split of their doubleheader in GPAC play after dropping game one.

This time the Defenders never trailed in winning a 7-3 decision from Doane in Crete, Nebraska.

Doane got one back in the third inning to trail 3-1 but Dordt got the run back with a Heeringa double plating Vanden Berg in the fourth.  Dordt missed out on a more damaging inning as they left the bases loaded and the game was 5-1.

Doane closed to within two in the home half of the fifth but Dordt got two more in the top of the sixth to make the final 7-3. Evavold had a run batted in and Heeringa had another with a double and the rest of the game went without a threat by either team.
