With a 3-1 win against Louisville on Friday, Duke’s well-positioned to compete for a regular season title as a young team comes good under head coach John Kerr.

The sophomore from Iceland scored five goals in two games, bagging a hat trick against Howard, and scoring twice on Friday to beat Louisville at home.
