In addition to her four goals, Shaw recorded a game-high three assists. Rilee Bradshaw and Tess Drotar added two goals apiece for the Dukes, who improve to 2-3 on the season.

1st HALF: Rilee Bradshaw put Duquesne on the board, up 1-0, at 29:16 after the Dukes won the opening draw. Duquesne went on to score an additional five unanswered goals before Saint Francis U would capitalize on a free position shot at the 16:30 mark, bringing the score to 6-1. The Red Flash scored another four goals, cutting their deficit within 2--at 7-5--heading into halftime. The Dukes outshot Saint Francis U 17-13 for the half, picking up 12 groundballs to SFU's eight. 

2nd HALF:
Vacanti opened the second half with a hat trick goal scored off a free position opportunity, extending Duquesne's lead to 8-5 with 26:44 left. SFU answered with a goal 27 seconds later, bringing the game within 2 points at 8-6. Shaw would find the back of the net at 25:39, putting the Dukes ahead 9-6. The teams would continue to exchange goals until Elizabeth Petrosky scored with 8 seconds remaining to seal Duquesne's victory. 

"Right now we're working on putting 60 minutes of lacrosse together. We definitely saw some good things, and I'm happy with the way we started. We're working on our consistency, but I'm happy to see that a lot of different players scored, and that we're having multiple people produce." 

The Dukes head to Catonsville, Maryland to face UMBC on Saturday at 11 a.m., marking the beginning of a five-game road swing.
