The sophomore goalie made 10 saves in Sunday’s 9-8 upset of then-No. 9 Northwestern, including three on the Wildcats’ final possession. Cadoux, a McDonogh graduate, stopped those three shots in the last 2:20 against three players who already had combined for four goals. After the third save, Cadoux picked up the ground ball and the host Blue Devils maintained possession for the final 1:12 of the game. Six of her saves came in the second half, including four in the final 3:13. Cadoux, who started the final seven games of her freshman season, has a .535 save percentage and 12 grounds balls as Duke is off to a 3-0 start. The Blue Devils hadn’t beaten Northwestern in three years and the victory boosted them from No. 18 to No. 10 in the Inside Lacrosse media poll.
