’20 Crush Brennan O’Neill (St. Anthony’s) continued his outstanding freshman campaign with two goals and an assist to go with four ground balls. ’19 Orange Tyler Carpenter (Salisbury, Conn.) picked up three ground balls from his LSM spot, ’19 Orange Kenny Brower (Massapequa) dislodged a turnover and ’18 Extreme Owen Caputo (Middle Creek, N.C.) tallied twice for Duke.
