Sept. 10, 2003
The Duquesne women's soccer team suffered a 1-0 loss in its home opener this evening to Robert Morris on Rooney Field. The Dukes out-shot the Colonials 21 to 11, including an 11-4 edge in the second frame.
The Dukes' goalkeeper Virginai Bondi (Strongsville, Ohio/Strongsville) recorded seven saves in 90 minutes of action. Robert Morris' Nicole Hilderbrand hit the unassisted score at the 88:20 mark for the win.
Duquesne missed out on several scoring opportunities as five shots, including three headers from Lauren Bracco (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hallow Hills West), sailed just above the crossbar. The Colonials recorded eight saves on the night.
The Dukes hit the road once again this weekend traveling to Canisius Sept. 12 for a 7:00 pm match followed by a 1:00 pm contest at Niagara Sept. 14.
