DENVER - The Duquesne lacrosse team lost a hard-fought contest at #16 Denver Tuesday afternoon, 14-11. This game concludes their two-game road trip which began Sunday afternoon with a 21-18 loss to Stony Brook.

Sarah Cates and Janna Faulkner each scored a hat trick and Caitlin Carducci made 12 saves for Duquesne who fell to 0-4 on the season.

Ali Flury had a game-high five goals, all scored in the second half, for Denver.

Denver got an early 3-0 lead before the Duquesne defense clamped down on the high-scoring Pioneers holding them scoreless for the next 21 minutes. Sarah Cates led an offensive charge, scoring two of five straight Duquesne goals to take a 5-3 lead into halftime.

A pair of early Denver second half goals tied the contest at 5-5 before Janna Faulkner's score regained the lead for Duquesne. The Dukes' advantage would only last 14 seconds as the Pioneers' Megan Carver evened the score off a pass from Megan Tyrie.

Denver would regain the lead after Fleury's first goal of the match. Duquesne responded with back-to-back goals from Ashley Wood and Sarah Cates to take an 8-7 advantage.
