Soccer drops 1-0 to #10 Marquette...Volleyball sweeps DePaul...Field Hockey today....Rocks roll X 41-6

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday at CARDINAL COUPLE

-Early score decides Field Hockey vs. Marquette.

-DePaul no match for Lola in Volleyball.

-Sowry's stick swingers take on UConn today.

-Strictly business...Trinity romps St.Xavier by 35.

IF you showed up a little late for last night's women's soccer match against Marquette last night, you missed the deciding score. Five minutes into the game, the Golden Eagles' Taylor Madigan drove a loose ball into the corner of the net for a 1-0 lead. And, that...as they say...was that.

Defense dominated the rest of the way. Only 14 total shots in 90 minutes of play...Marquette holding a 9-5 advantage. The Golden Eagles also led Louisville in shots on goal 5-1.

Jordan Pawlik for Louisville
Cardinal coach Karen Ferguson Dayes commented on the early fireworks:

"With all due respect to Marquette, I personally think that it was a soft goal on our part. It was a great finish for them but we were definitely a little flat and I believe it was a missed clearance by us. After we made some adjustments for what they were doing, I thought we were in there. They're a good team and I give them credit. They got the win tonight."

With the loss, the Cards drop to 4-5-3 on the season and 2-1-2 in the BIG EAST. They'll look for redemption Sunday when USF visits. Game time is 1 p.m.

Lola Arslanbekova led the Volleyball Cards with 19 kills last night as Louisville swept the DePaul Blue Demons 25-15, 25-15, 26-24 in BIG EAST Volleyball action in Chicago last night.

Lola shines again for Cards
UofL (11-4, 3-0) won the first two matches with relative ease...jumping out to a 16-12 lead in game one and then going on a 9-3 to take the win. Game two saw the Cards rip out to a 11-2 advantage and lead late 21-10 before coasting in for the ten point victory. The Blue Demons made it a bit tougher in the third...grabbing a 8-2 early advantage and the Cards did not gain the lead until Kaitlynn James got a block to put Louisville up 21-20. DePaul took the game to match point with a 4-1 run...but Louisville responded with the final four points to take game, set and match.

Tanya Lukyanenko had a big night also for Anne Kordes' squad...with 10 kills and the Cards got 10 digs and two blocks out of James. 

Tough one Sunday for Louisville, at South Bend against the Irish. Notre Dame (8-4, 1-1) hosts the Cincinnati Bearcats today before the Cards invade. 

*************************************************************************************************************

Field Hockey looks to take one on the road today when they face off against #4 UConn in Storrs this afternoon. #19 Louisville will need a big defensive effort to shut down a Husky squad (8-1) that has scored eight goals in their last two wins. On offense, Hayley Turner will need to keep up her scoring success of late for the Cards to pull off the upset.

Don't be surprised if this one is a low scoring affair. The Cards defense has been stellar this season...allowing only 10 goals in 10 contests. The UConn defense just as good...giving up only eight scores this year.

James Quick lives up to his last name
Trinity dominated the second half against St. Xavier in high school football last night at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium...caging the Tigers 41-6 in front of 30,666 attendees. This one was still close at halftime...the Rocks holding on to a shaky 14-6 advantage. X blew a golden opportunity to score near the end of the first quarter...fumbling on the Trinty 1 yard line. No panic or yelling in the Rocks locker room at halftime. Just a reminder from head Trinity coach Bob Beatty that they needed to go out in the second half and take care of business.

Business was good in the final half.The game turned into the James Quick show for Trinity...he had two touchdown catches on the night and threw for a score. The junior wide receiver/athlete is as good as promised. Trinity is definitely one of the top 3 teams in the nation.

**************************************************************************************************************

Football returns to the Oven again this afternoon when Marshall comes to visit the Cards. 3:30 p.m. kickoff and it's been announced that it's a sold out show. Another ideal day for the gridiron...temperatures in the low 60's and no rain. The Cards go on the road for two after this one...visiting North Carolina and Cincinnati before returning home to face Rutgers on Friday, October 21st.

After the Cards corral the Thundering Herd...why not head over to Cardinal Park to watch the men's soccer team (6-2) battle UConn? Game time is 7 p.m. for Ken Lolla's guys. It's an easy walk from Papa John's and better than sitting in traffic for an hour sweating out the UofL game exit snafu that occurs after each home contest.
