Briar Cliff def. Dordt 5-0
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Defenders started strong, earning early scoring chances from both Cailey Terpstra and Katherine Kooiman with less than five minutes off of the game clock. Following those opportunities, Dordt was pushed back to the defensive end by the Chargers. The defense held down many of Briar Cliff shot attempts early on until Flor Suarez netted two quick goals late in the first half.
The Briar Cliff offense continued to keep the ball on their side of the field in the second as they added three more goals to their total. Flor Suarez was first to score ten minutes into the half. Taylor Hill and Gisselle Gimenez each added one goal.
With the loss, the Defenders are 1-2-0 in the new season.
DeLynne Zevenbergen saved 7 shots
Maddie Regnerus had 2 shots on goal
COACH DURBIN SAID
"Today we played a very impressive Briar Cliff team. We unfortunately couldn’t put together a complete game. We again played quality football in 10 minute intervals. Eventually, we will just need to go out and compete hard for 90 minutes. We have a lot to work out in practice before we take on College of Saint Mary on Saturday."
Dordt will travel to Omaha to face College of Saint Mary in a 1:00 PM match. The Defenders and the Flames will each be playing their second conference game of the season.
