Duke ends JHU's 17-game home winning streak in champ play

  Duke handed Johns Hopkins its first postseason loss at Homewood Field since 1991.

Unseeded Duke handed No. 6 seed Johns Hopkins its first home defeat in championship play in 17 games with an impressive 19-6 victory in Saturday's first round of the NCAA tournament.

The Bluejays (8-7) had gone 26 years without a playoff loss at Homewood Field — with the previous instance coming in the 1991 quarterfinals against Syracuse. Under current head coach Dave Pietramala, Johns Hopkins came into Saturday's contest with an 11-0 record on its home turf in postseason play. The latest home loss was only the program's fifth-ever during tournament play (44-5).

The streak came to an end thanks to a balanced attack by the Blue Devils (12-4). Three Duke players finished with at least three goals, led by four-goal games from Justin Guterding and Jack Bruckner.

The Bluejays came out of the gates hot, scoring the first two goals of the game. The Blue Devils answered with seven of the next eight tallies to open up a commanding 7-3 lead early in the second quarter. Johns Hopkins was held to three total goals over the final three quarters while Duke kept its foot on the gas pedal.

Duke moves on to face the winner of No. 3 seed Ohio State and Loyola Maryland with a trip to the semifinals on the line. For Johns Hopkins, this marks its second straight first round exit.
