Women's Soccer Falls to Hawaii
Sept. 17, 2007
WAIPAHU, HAWAII - The Duquesne women's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to the University of Hawaii's late Sunday night. The Dukes gave the Rainbow Wahine a challenge throughout the contest, but could but get a shot past keepers Kori Lu or Nicole McClure in a game dominated by both teams defense.
UH's Tehane Higa found the back of net off a corner kick from Ambree Ako to put Hawaii up 1-0 in the 19th minute. DU played the undefeated Rainbow Wahine (5-0-1) even throughout the entire match, but a Taryn Fukuroku goal with less than a minute in regulation sealed the victory for Hawaii 2-0.
Brittany Findley made a pair of saves on a Hawaii team that averages three goals per game, while DU's defense held the high powered offense to just nine total shots.
This was the first time Duquesne and Hawaii faced each other and only the second time DU has faced a school out of the Western Athletic Conference. The Dukes defeated Boise State 2-1 at the St. Bonaventure Tournament on Sept. 9, 2001.
After a well deserved week off, Coach Zundel's team will open its Atlantic 10 Conference schedule with a Sept. 28 meeting against Charlotte. The match will begin at 7:30 p.m.
