GAMETIME…  The Dordt Defenders travel to Hastings, Nebraska to face the Hastings Broncos on Wednesday, November 6 in the quarterfinal round of the Men’s Great Plains Athletic Conference Post-Season Tournament.  The game begins at 6:00.   Results will be posted on www.dordt.edu/athletics ; https://www.facebook.com/dordtdefenders and https://twitter.com/dcathletics when the game is complete.  The games were originally scheduled to be played on Tuesday, November 5 but were postponed one day due to anticipated poor weather conditions.

SCOUTING REPORT… The Broncos claimed their 14th straight conference title this season and spent the year in the top-25 NAIA Coaches’ Poll.

DORDT COLLEGE NOTES… Dordt finished the season with a 3-6-1 GPAC record and a 5-12-1 overall mark. The Defenders closed the season with a pair of victories in must-win situations to extend their season to the GPAC Tournament.  The Defenders have been involved in six games that have been decided by one goal and they were 1-5 in those games.  Four of those one goal games came in conference play. 

Dordt was outscored 35-31 this season and were outshot on goal 122-97.  Brady Van Holland had nine regular season goals and five assists—both tops on the team.  Eric Grootenboer added eight goals and Derick Sackey contributed four goals.  Davi Baldussi Alves set up three goals with assists.

Joey Rasnic and Jon Brinkerhoff split the goalkeeping chores with Rasnic playing 562 minutes and he had 11 goals allowed for a 1.76 goals allowed average and he made 30 saves.  Brinkerhoff played 1,097 minutes and allowed 24 goals with 55 saves and a 1.97 goals allowed average.  Rasnic and Brinkerhoff each had a pair of shutouts.

Hastings answered with a pair of Jordan Green goals in the 54th and 58th minutes and then put the game away with a Felix Proessi goal in the 67th minute.

This season Dordt and Hastings played on October 19 in Sioux Center with Hastings winning a 1-0 decision on a goal in the 68th minute by Jake Ramsay.  Dordt was outshot on goal 5-2 and overall 12-8.  Brinkerhoff played the game in goal and had four saves and Brady Van Holland had three shots in the game.

THE GPAC TOURNAMENT… The winner of the GPAC Tournament will advance, as the league’s only automatic representative, to the NAIA National Men’s Soccer National Championship Opening Round (on Saturday, November 23).  The GPAC is allotted one automatic berth this year because the conference is below 12 NAIA teams in the postseason (10 teams). 

Sixteen teams will advance to the NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship Final Site in Montgomery, Alabama, December 2 - December 7, 2014, at the Emory Folmar YMCA Soccer Complex.
