HOW IT HAPPENED
The Dordt College softball team fell 3-2 to Presentation in the second game of the Thursday night double-header.
Carley De Roin picked up where she left off in the first game with a double to score Jessica Oules and give Dordt the 1-0 lead in the top of the first.
Presentation's Krystle Schweers responded with a double of her own in the bottom of the first to score Cortni Mendoza and tie things at one.
Neither team scored any runs in the second. Dordt had Natalie Vos and Jane Wynja both reach second in the inning, but couldn't bring them home.
Presentation took the lead in the third off of a Schweers run.
The Defenders tied things at two after Jennifer Kooiker scored. Dordt started the inning with three of the first four batters getting walked. Erin Bredemus and Jessica Oules were both in scoring position, but a pop fly to shallow right from Hailey Heeringa ended the threat.
Presentation scored the final run of the game in the fifth. Cortni Mendoza took advantage of a Dordt error and scored from third.
Natalie Vos pitched the first five innings for Dordt. She gave up five hits and three earned runs. Marlia Mundorf pitched the sixth and gave up one hit.
Macy Jacobsma went two for four to lead the Defenders.
Carley De Roin and Brooklyn Van Noort each had an RBI.
The Defenders will face off against Valley City State on Friday at 3:00 p.m. in Aberdeen.
