The Eagles suffered their first back-to-back losses of the season this week, coming up short again with a 2-1 loss to #11 Duke in Durham, North Carolina this afternoon. They are 0-2-1 in their toughest road stretch of the year, drawing with the Hurricanes in Miami last week before falling 1-0 to #3 UNC on Thursday.
The Eagles jumped out to a 1-0 lead early today on with Olivia Vaughn’s ninth goal of the season. Sam Coffey connected with Vaughn on a counterattack, pushing a beautiful pass from behind midfield to Vaughn just outside the penalty box. Vaughn drilled it over Duke keeper Brooke Heinsohn.
