HOW IT HAPPENED
The second game of the Friday double-header failed to go the way of Dordt and the Defenders lost 4-0 to Dickinson State.
The first two innings went by without much action. Jessica Oules got on base in the bottom of the first on a walk, but no one could bring her home. Jaya Allen struck out the three Dordt batters in the bottom the second to silence any offensive push.
The Blue Hawks scored three runs in the top of the third to take a 3-0 lead. Sonja Lawrence scored off of a Dordt error, Kayla Stephens scored thanks to a Jaya Allen double and Allen was hit home by a Whitney Mesi double.
Neither team scored over the next three innings and one final run for Dickinson State in the seventh sealed the victory.
Natalie Vos managed the only hit in the game for the Defenders.
Tianna Soodmsa gave up three earned runs in the loss.
Dordt will take on Jamestown at 3:00 p.m. and Northern State at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday to conclude the three day road trip.
