"We did a very good job defensively limiting them to one shot," remarked Dordt Head Coach Ross Douma. "Our execution was pretty good and we did a nice job looking into the post. It was important for us to get some separation from them early in the second half and that's exactly what we did. It was a big week for us coming off that tough loss on the road and our guys did well in responding with two big wins this week."
