No. 6 Duke Barely Outlasts No. 14 Delaware

"I'm very proud to be a part of this team," said senior defender Pat Dowling, a four-time All-CAA selection who played in two NCAA Tournament games. "When we went down 5-0, I'm sure everyone thought this game was over. It's a bittersweet feeling. We lost the game but this has been an incredible experience and still feel a great sense of accomplishment."
