|| QUICK RECAP:
PITTSBURGH -- The Duquesne women's lacrosse team fell to Ohio State 17-5 on Rooney Field Friday afternoon in its second nonconference match of the season.
The Dukes saw goal goals from five different players: Kaelin Shaw, Jill Vacanti, Tess Drotar, Rilee Bradshaw and Maddie Hart. Erin Conway and Hart each recorded game-highs, picking up three groundballs and forcing three caused turnvovers.
Ohio State's Baley Parrot led the way with four goals.
Shaw's goal off the opening draw, assisted by Macy Marafioti, gave Duquesne an early 1-0 lead at the 29:44 mark. The Buckeyes went on to score three unanswered goals, before Hart would answer, scoring with 23 minutes remaining, bringing the score to 3-2.
Vacanti found the back of the net with 19:27 to go, tying the score at 3-3, when her shot fed by Shaw beat OSU keeper Jillian Rizzo.
Ohio State went on to extend its lead to 7-3 by the 6:34 mark, after recording another four goals.
Bradshaw put the Dukes on the board again at the 4:32 mark, capitalizing on a free position opportunity and bringing the score to 7-4 in favor of the Buckeyes.
A Drotar goal with 15 seconds on the clock cut Duquesne's deficit within two-- at 7-5 --heading into halftime.
Ohio State would pull away with 10 second half goals to seal the victory.
|| COACH EVANS QUOTE:
"We just need to be more agressive and do the little things better, I think if we do that the big picture will come together. Heading into Monday's match against Detroit we need to work on our shooting, and defensively we need to work more as a unit."

The Dukes close out their three-game homestand to host Detroit (1-2) on Monday, March 6 at 12 p.m. on Rooney Field.
