The Dukes would close out the half with a 1-0 advantage.
Duquesne had a chance to extend their lead in the 62nd minute, but O'Connor was unable to capitalize when her shot hit the post.
O'Connor would get redemption nine minutes later, when she finished a cross from Italia Biondi to put the Dukes up 2-0.
For the game Duquesne outshot Akron 15-5 and had seven corner kicks to Akron's two.
"I thought that we played the way that we are capable of playing in the second half, and we could have scored two or three goals in the second half. We're going to enjoy this win tonight and tomorrow we get ready for a very good Princeton team on Sunday."
