__Tribe falls in two contests against top-10 competitors__
p. The Tribe dropped a pair of close matches this weekend against top-10 opponents University of Iowa and Duke University. In Monday’s contest with Iowa, the Hawkeyes struck first as Lindsey Duffy scored in the game’s sixth minute. Neither team would score again as Iowa preserved its advantage and took the match 1-0. Senior goalkeeper Gwen Hunter held back a barrage of Hawkeye shots and recorded 10 saves on the day. With the loss the College now stands at 2-2 on the season. The Tribe fell 3-0 against home-standing Duke Saturday as the Blue Devils outshot the College 15-2. Duke’s first goal came with six minutes remaining in the first half. Two second half insurance goals sealed the Tribe’s fate.
