Notre Dame, Ind. – Notre Dame women’s lacrosse coach Tracy Coyne has announced that the Irish will face the Duquesne Dukes at Moose Krause Stadium on Sunday, April 1 at 1:00 p.m.
The Duquesne game replaces the April 10 game with Ohio University in Athens, Ohio as the Bobcats announced on Feb. 9, that they had cancelled the 2007 women’s lacrosse schedule due to dropping the program beginning with the 2007-08 season.
Notre Dame has met Duquesne twice in the program’s history, winning on March 29, 1997 at Duquesne (in Pittsburgh, Pa.) by a 15-4 score. The two teams met the following year on March 24 at Notre Dame with the Irish winning 17-9.
Notre Dame is currently 3-1 on the season and will return to action on Saturday, March 10 at 12:00 noon when they Irish travel to Buffalo, N.Y., to meet Canisius.
