Emily McMinimee matched a career-high 11 saves and Tess Drotar netted a pair of goals in the Duquesne lacrosse team's 19-7 loss to Saint Joseph's on Sunday afternoon on Rooney Field. 

Kenna Gubler's three caused turnovers were a game high, while Drotar and Rilee Bradshaw led the Dukes, winning three draw controls each. Megan Konieczny and Bradshaw each recorded a team-high two ground balls, with Konieczny also adding a goal. 

Nora McCallion and Penny Green led Saint Joseph's, scoring four goals apiece. Aly Gormley added three goals for the Hawks. 

1H: Saint Joseph's opened the scoring with a goal at the 29:24 mark, however Konieczny's shot at 26:18 beat SJU keeper Amelia Deibler, leveling the match at 1-1. SJU responded by scoring the next three goals and extending its lead to 4-1 with 16:54 to go. Haley Matthai's goal with 14:45 cut the Hawks lead to 4-2, but another three unanswered goals by SJU would bring the score to 8-2 with 9:36 left. Goals from Drotar and Elizabeth Petrosky cut Saint Joseph's lead in half at 8-4 with 5:55 on the clock, and the Dukes would see goals from DeHaven and Drotar in the remaining two minutes to make it a 9-6 match by halftime. 

2H: Jill Vacanti would score the lone Duquesne goal of the half, as SJU pulled away with 10 second-half goals. The Dukes posted 28 shots in the match, winning 13 draw controls and forcing six caused turnovers. 

"Another tough loss. We had plenty of opportunities, but couldn't finish when we needed to. I was happy to see captain, Tess Drotar, get back on the scoreboard for us today. She gave us a spark of momentum in the last portion of the first half, we just couldn't keep that going."

The Dukes head to Olean, N.Y. to face St. Bonaventure (2-7, 0-2 A-10) on Thursday at 3 p.m. and then travel to Davidson (3-7, 1-2 A-10) for a 1 p.m. match on Saturday.
