Still rolling – The Dukes (5-1) are on a five-game winning streak, and they seem to have clicked as a unit after a rocky season opener at UNC. This team is starting to live up to the preseason hype.
Molly Dougherty shines – JMU’s goalkeeper finished with a career-high 19 saves against Penn State. JMU’s defense is what makes this year’s team so exciting. The Dukes gave up 38 shots to a ranked team on the road and still won. That’s not easy to do.
Up next – JMU hosts Rutgers (4-3) on Sunday at noon. The Dukes are the better team.
