Red & Blue Bow 1-0 to Saint Joseph's
Oct. 24, 2004
Duquesne University women's soccer team suffered a 1-0 loss to visiting Saint Joseph's Sunday afternoon on Rooney Field, despite holding a 19-9 edge on shots. The Red & Blue saw three scoring opportunities slip away. Nicole Nanchoff had a ball hit off the post in the first frame while Katie Schwager had a post-shot in the second period followed by a header that hit the cross bar by Erica Carey.
The Dukes also held a 7-2 edge on corner kicks. It was a pretty physical contest in a battle to better the team's chances on a shot in the sis team A-10 tournament. The Hawks led the game with 14 fouls while the Dukes were whistled for 12.
The Hawks' Cristin Harris notched the game-winner in the 40th minute from Jess Daugherty. SJU also hit a wide shot on an empty net as keeper Virginia Bondi charged the ball out of the box in the second stanza.
The Dukes dropped to 8-9-1 (3-5-1) while Saint Joseph's upped it's record to 6-10-1 (4-4-1).
Duquesne closes out the regular season next weekend hosting Rhode Island on Friday and UMass on Sunday for Senior Day.
