DURHAM, N.C. – For the third game in a row, senior midfielder Kevin Reidinger scored twice, but the Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse team dropped its road opener at #18/16 Duke, 16-3, at Koskinen Stadium on Saturday afternoon. After facing three nationally-ranked opponents to open the season, the Hawks sit 0-3 overall, while the Blue Devils improve to 3-2. 

The Blue Devils jumped out to a 4-0 advantage before Reidinger scored his first of the day at the 4:24 mark of the first quarter.

Duke then scored the next six goals of the game before Reidinger scored his second of the day and sixth of the season, on an assist from junior midfielder Kyle Cain, at the 6:33 mark of the second.

The Blue Devils tacked on two more to take a 12-2 lead into the halftime break and went on to outscore the Hawks 4-1 in the second half, including a shutout third quarter, for the eventual 16-3 win.

Junior attackman Patrick O'Brien scored his first goal as a Hawk, on a feed from senior midfielder Evan Wolf, at the 13:12 mark of the fourth quarter.

For the game, Duke held advantages in shots (37-21) and ground balls (33-16) and went 14-for-23 in face-off opportunities to go with an 18-for-19 showing in clear attempts.
