Dordt def. Mount Marty 5-0
HOW IT HAPPENED
The first fifteen minutes of the game was one-sided as the Defenders opened the game with a combination of shot attempts and effective defense. Dordt attempted nine shots in that time period, which included goals from Cailey Terpstra and Maddie Regnerus.
The following trip down the field, the Lancers were able to attempt their first shot of the game, which was saved by Dordt goalkeeper Elianna Van Hulzen. The Defenders came back to their side of the field with a scoring chance, as Kristen Inge netted her first goal of the season.
The second half was a similar story, as Alaina Van Zalen scored off of the assist from Emily Kooiman to give Dordt a four-goal lead. In the final stretch of the game, freshman midfielder Clarissa Quintanilla scored her first goal of the season to bring the final score to a 5-0 victory for the Defenders.
