PITTSBURGH- Kathleen Typadis broke a 6-6 tie with 15:32 to play in regulation and Massachusetts held Duquesne without a goal the rest of the way in posting a 10-6 victory at Rooney Field Friday afternoon.
The loss drops the Dukes to 7-7 overall and 2-2 in Atlantic 10 Conference play while the victory was the first in the A-10 this season for UMass (6-8, 1-3).
Typadis' scored her second goal of the game at the 7:02 mark of the first half as the teams went into halftime deadlocked at 4-4.

UM got three more goals after Typadis' game-winner to close out the scoring and steal a road win 10-6.
The Dukes were out shot 24-18, but had a 15-11 margin in ground balls.
