Chrest had four goals and an assist, and Carolyn Davis and Kristen Waagbo each had three goals for the Blue Devils (10-1).

Duke took an 11-4 halftime lead and the Wildcats (10-1) could never get back in the match, despite a team-high five goals from Kristen Kjellman.

Towson 14, Drexel 9 -- Hillary Fratzke tied a career high with 11 draw controls to break the single-season mark of 61 set by Becky Trumbo (Liberty) last season. In her first season with the Tigers (6-5, 3-1 Colonial Athletic Association), Fratzke has 68 draw controls. Fratzke also had two goals in the win over the Dragons (8-3, 0-3).

Sacred Heart 8, Mount St. Mary's 7 -- Candice Celebre (11 saves) stopped Katie Falatach's shot with 0.7 of a second remaining as the Pioneers (3-8, 3-0 Northeast Conference) held on to beat the visiting Mount (4-8, 2-2).
