In a busy night in The Ville the No. 6 Louisville field hockey team hosted No. 2 Duke. In the end the Blue Devils came out on top 2-1.
Duke scored in the first half just before the seven minute mark when Alyssa Chillano's penalty shot went in. U of L evened things up in the second half when Taylor Stone scored off the assist from Erin McCrudden. However, Hunter Bracale scored for the Blue Devils ten minutes later, and Duke never looked back.
The loss is the first of the season for the Cards, who are now 6-1. Louisville also drops to 0-1 in ACC play. Duke stays undefeated at 7-0 and 2-0 in conference play.
The Cards are back in action Sunday, September 18, at 1:00 p.m., when Ohio State visits Trager Stadium.
