GREENVILLE, N.C.— Eleven different Blue Devils scored goals and 14 players had at least one point as third-ranked Duke cruised to a 19-4  victory over first-year program Furman this evening at Paladin Stadium.  Senior Josh Dionne led all scorers with a career-high six tallies.

The Blue Devils improve to 7-2 overall, while Furman falls to 0-8. Senior Dax Cohan registered his first career goal in the victory, while Tanner Scott and Seamus Connelly both had their first markers of the season.

The Blue Devils got off to a quick start with three goals in the opening 59 seconds. Dionne scored twice in the opening minute as the Blue Devils built a 7-1 first-quarter lead. Six different Duke players scored in the first 15 minutes, including Jordan Wolf who extended his point scoring streak to 50 games.

Duke rattled off five more goals in the second quarter with Dionne adding two more and freshman Jack Bruckner getting one to put the Blue Devils up 13-2 at the break. The Blue Devils scored 13 goals on 25 shots in the opening half and held a 21-10 advantage in ground balls.
