Columbus, Ohio - Duquesne University's women's lacrosse team split their games this weekend in neighboring Ohio as the Dukes dropped a 14-2 match to The Ohio State University Saturday afternoon at OSU's North Turf Field. The Dukes are now 2-2; this was 1-0 OSU's season opener.
Seniors Laura App (Silver Spring, Md. / Our Lady of Good Counsel) and Ginger Flocco (Plymouth Meeting, Pa. / Plymouth-Whitemarsh) scored second half goals. Sophomore Margaret Cloutman (West Chester, Pa. / West Chester) assited on App's goal at the 44:55 mark which ended the Buckeyes string of 10 unanswered scores, all in the opening 30 minutes. Senior Sarah Pacini (Baldwinsville, N.Y. / C.W. Baker / Vanderbilt) recorded eight saves as OSU outshot the Dukes, 34-25.
Flocco's goal was her fifth this weekend; she tallied four of DU's six markers in Friday's 6-5 overtime win over Ohio U. She and App tied OSU's Kelly Kremer with game-high eight shots. Kramer led the host's offense with four goals.
