SCORE

  • Dordt def. Briar Cliff 58-0

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Dordt Defenders had little trouble on Saturday afternoon in defeating Briar Cliff 58-0 in GPAC football. Dordt snapped a two-game losing skid in the process while the Chargers saw their two-game winning streak end.

Dordt was unable to move the football on their first two drives and Briar Cliff actually had the first scoring chance with a 41 yard field goal attempt on its first possession coming up short.

The Defenders got on the board with a Carter Schiebout six yard run with 5:56 left in the quarter and Anthony Trojahn added an 11 yard run with under a minute left in the first for a 14-0 lead.  Dordt added to the lead with a pair of Nick Wellen runs of two and seven yards and took a 27-0 lead into the halftime break.  The difference could have been wider if not for the lone turnover of the game happening on a Dordt drive inside the Briar Cliff 10.

Trojahn rambled 45 yards for a score in the third quarter and senior Raphael Carr caught a Kade McDaniel pass for a 31 yard score leaving the difference 41-1.  Daniel Dickerson scored twice in the fourth quarter and Brett Zachman kicked a school record 51-yard field goal leaving the final 58-0.

Dordt was not forced to punt after the first two possessions of the game.
