PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Senior Ginger Flocco scored four goals and Laura App added three during a 10-1 run to lead Duquesne to a 13-5 win over UC Davis in a non-conference collegiate women's lacrosse game at Rooney Field Friday.
The Aggies move to 6-5 on the season. The Dukes, members of the Atlantic-10 Conference, win their seventh straight contest to improve their record to 9-2 overall.
Sophomore Katie McMahon and Tiffany Lee each scored two goals for UC Davis, while freshman Kaitlin Moore added one score. McMahon also had her team's lone assist, setting up Moore on a goal with 4:12 remaining in the first half.
McMahon scored goals at the 17:28 and 20:29 mark of the first half to erase an early 2-0 Duquesne lead. However, Flocco completed her hat trick just a minute later, igniting a 5-1 finish to the half. The Dukes then stretched their 7-3 lead to as much as 13-3. Freshman Ashley Wood had two goals and an assist during that 10-1 stretch. Lee, a junior attacker, scored back-to-back goals in the final six minutes to whittle away at the DU lead.
Senior Kristen Braasch and freshman Hilary Harkins split time in the UC Davis cage. Braasch posted five saves in her 39:40 in net, then Harkins filled in for seven saves against just one Duke goal in the final 20:20.
Flocco finished with a 4-1-5 offensive chart for the Dukes. Laura App also had five points, chipping in two assists to go with her hat trick.
