|| QUICK RECAP:
In its third matchup against a Power 5 opponent this season, the Duquesne lacrosse team fell at Louisville 15-6 Tuesday afternoon.
Sarah Kollhoff matched a game-high two goals and Megan Konieczny netted her first career-goal as a Duke. Kelsey Blackburn led the Dukes with three ground balls and Maddy Curtis posted a career-high 12 saves in her first start in net for Duquesne.
The Dukes held the ACC's leading scorer Hannah Koloski and fourth-leading scorer Meghan Siverson to two goals apiece.
1st HALF: Kollhoff put the Dukes on the board with 10:59 remaining in the half, bringing Duquesne within three, with Louisville ahead 4-1. With 6:03 to go, a foul against Louisville's Alex Rich, led to a Kollhoff free position attempt beating UL keeper Brittany Read, cutting the Cardinals lead in half at 4-2. Louisville took a 7-2 lead going into halftime.
2nd HALF: The Cardinals extended their lead to 12-2, before the Dukes would record three unanswered goals (Vacanti, Matthai, Battles), bringing the score to 12-5 with 13:56 to go. Konieczny's goal off a free position opportunity with 51 seconds remaining was the final mark for either team.
|| COACH EVANS QUOTE:
"Another tough loss, but we saw great things from Maddy Curtis in the cage and our defense came up with some big plays. We still need to work on putting it together on both sides of the field and giving up careless turnovers."
|| UP NEXT:
The Dukes return home to visit cross-town rival Robert Morris (5-4) on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Joe Walton Stadium.
