Blue Jays replace scheduled Duke game with Mount St. Mary's

The Blue Jay men's lacrosse team, which was scheduled to play Duke on April 8, added another game to its schedule last week to ensure that the Blue Jays would play 12 regular season games.

The road trip to Durham, N.C., postponed and later canceled because of an ongoing investigation into an alleged rape at a team party, was replaced with a visit on Monday, April 10, from Mount St. Mary's, the first match-up in the two schools' histories.

Playing on a soaked Homewood Field, the Jays beat the opposing Mountaineers 19 to 6.
