Women's Soccer Falls in Home Finale
Oct. 20, 2002
Duquesne (5-9-1, 1-5-1) dropped a 3-1 Atlantic 10 decision to visiting and top-ranked Rhode Island (10-4-2, 6-1-0) Sunday afternoon to conclude the 2002 home slate. Senior Kristin Scharphorn played her final home game with style tying her career mark with a season-best 17 saves on 20 shots on goal.
The game saw a scoreless first half and a total of 68 minutes without a goal before the Rams' Heather Kasparek hit the back of the net at 68:01 to put Rhode Island up 1-0. She netted the second of her three goals on the day in the 76th minute from younger sister Melanie and notched a rebounded goal in the 81st minute for a 3-0 lead.
The Red & Blue travel to Ohio next weekend for a pair of Atlantic 10 contests at Dayton Oct. 25 and at Xavier Oct. 27.
