Dukes go 4-2 at NEC Meet

Post three seven-game wins on weekend

MECHANICSBURG, PA - Twentieth ranked Duquesne won a trio of seven game matches in going 4-2 in the first round of Northeast Conference regular season play held over the weekend at ABC West Lanes in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

All six matches featured best-of-seven baker format bowling.

The Dukes opened with back-to-back seven game wins over No. 19 LIU Brooklyn and St. Francis Brooklyn before falling 4-2 to No. 13 Saint Francis U in the final match on Saturday. DU trailed St. Francis Brooklyn 3-2 before rallying to post 183-176 and 219-169 wins in games six and seven. Duquesne posted a high weekend pinfall of 1362 in the win over the Terriers.

On Sunday, DU dropped a 4-1 decision to Mount St. Mary's before rallying for a 4-1 win over No. 9 Fairleigh Dickinson and 4-3 victory over No. 12 Sacred Heart. MSM finished the weekend 6-0, with DU and Saint Francis U as the only other schools with a winning record at 4-2.

"The team really came together this weekend and fought through some tough matches," said Duquesne head coach Jody Fetterhoff. "Different people stepped up at key moments which helped us win all three of our seven-game matches. This puts us in a good position heading into the next conference event and is a great way to wrap up the fall portion of our season."
