The Dordt College JV women fell to the Northeast Community College Hawks Tuesday night, dropping the game 87-59 and falling to 2-5 overall.

It was the 4th consecutive loss for the Defenders, the last two being at the hands of the Hawks; the teams played on Nov. 15th with Northeast winning 66-61.

The athletic Hawks team out of Norfolk, Neb. overpowered Dordt inside, getting the majority of their points on layups. The sharp-shooting was provided by Erica Long who struck for 21 points, making five 3-pointers in the process. The Hawks had 10 of their 12 active players record points.

The Defenders used accurate free-throw shooting early on to stay in the game. The contest was tied at 10 before Northeast went on a run that put them ahead for good. An Erica Long three just before the halftime buzzer made it a 45-29 game heading into the locker room.

The second half was similar to the first. Dordt could not stop the talented Hawks down low, and compounded their mistakes by turning the ball over numerous times. The Defenders were also missing offensive threat Megan Carter who fouled out in the first half.

Leading the way for Dordt were Mel Van Wingerden and Courtney Kelderman with 14 points apiece.

Zena Nasiloski was second behind Long in scoring for the Hawks; she contributed 13 off the bench.

Dordt next takes the court on Thursday against their rival Northwestern.
