Junior Laura Suchoski netted two goals in Duke's 4-0 win over...

NORFOLK, Va. - Behind a two-goal performance by junior Laura Suchoski and a tally apiece from junior Marian Dickinson and sophomore Amie Survilla, the 11th-ranked Duke field hockey team cruised to a 4-0 shutout victory over Longwood on Saturday afternoon at Old Dominion’s Foreman Field.

Duke got on the board just two and a half minutes into the game as Survilla connected on a penalty stroke for the second consecutive contest to give the Blue Devils an early 1-0 lead. The goal was Survilla’s sixth of the season.

A minute and a half later, Suchoski found the net as she knocked in a rebound following a Longwood save off a Blue Devil penalty corner attempt to put Duke ahead, 2-0. The tally was Suchoski’s fourth of the year.

Dickinson then added a score for the Blue Devils at the 31:44 mark on a hard-hit shot from the middle of the circle, as Duke carried a 3-0 advantage into the halftime break. Dickinson’s goal was her seventh for the campaign.

Longwood got off no shot attempts for the initial stanza, as Duke converted on three of nine first-half shots. Lancer keeper Avanell Schmitz secured four saves, and the Blue Devils allowed no Lancer penalty corners, while taking four of their own.

The second half saw the score remain at 3-0 until Suchoski netted her second goal of the day and fifth of the year at the 63:14 mark to increase Duke’s advantage to 4-0.

Longwood got off one shot attempt for the half, but could not convert as senior Blue Devil goalie Caitlin Williams recorded a save to preserve the 4-0 shutout win for Duke.

Duke out-shot (15-1) and out-cornered (6-0) Longwood for the day, as the Blue Devils improved to 8-6 (1-3 ACC) on the season. Schmitz recorded six saves for the Lancers, who fall to 5-11 overall.

The Blue Devils will square off against 10th-ranked Old Dominion on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Foreman Field, as Duke looks to avenge an early-season 1-0 loss to the Lady Monarchs.
