Slow Start Dooms Dordt Football

Sioux Center, Iowa — Keiser (Florida) jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead and rode that advantage to an eventual 34-21 win over the Dordt Defenders in non-conference football on Thursday night in Sioux Center.

Keiser marched 61 yards to open the game, settling for a 38 yard field goal that just cleared the cross bar to give the Seahawks a 3-0 lead. Keiser faced third and eight on the first series of downs but the Defenders couldn’t get the stop to force a punt.

Dordt answered with a drive that got to the Keiser four yard line after a 30 yard completion from Noah Clayberg to Levi Jungling. A lost fumble on the next play ended the drive and Keiser responded with a 95 yard drive that culminated with a nine yard pass for a touchdown with 3:19 left in the quarter.

Keiser added drives of 94 yards and 31 yards to build the lead to 24-0 at halftime.

Dordt’s first score came with 8:23 left in the third quarter when Levi Schoonhoven capped a three play drive that was set up by a Sam Warner fumble recovery at the Keiser 26.

Keiser had an answer with a 12 play, 65 yard drive that ended with an eight yard touchdown pass with 2:51 left in the quarter to establish a 31-8 Keiser lead.

Dordt’s second score came with 14:21 left in the game on a Tyler Reynolds keeper from one yard out for a 31-15 deficit after the point after by Brett Zachman.

Keiser tacked on a field goal to finish their scoring and Dordt had a 14 play, 77 yard drive to end the scoring with 4:17 left in the game on a Charley Young eight yard touchdown run.
