- Field Hockey shoots past Ohio 6-2

- Soccer knocks off Miami (OH) 3-2 in overtime

As requested in our Sunday CARDINAL COUPLE edition, Louisville women's sports squads went 2-0 on Sunday.

In Trager Stadium, Justine Sowry's field hockey team improved to 3-1 on the season with a impressive 6-2 win over the Bobcats. In Oxford, OH...women's soccer got back on the winning track...overcoming a 2-0 deficit to win in overtime 3-2. Recaps below:

Five Cards score in field hockey win

Senior Erin Schneidtmiller had two goals in the 6-2 Cardinal

win. Ohio took an early 1-0 lead but freshman Lotta Kahiert stuck home the first goal of her career to tie it 12 minutes into the contest. Alyssa Voelmle gave Louisville the lead eight minutes later on a deflection of a Elisa Garcia penalty corner shot. Louisville took that 2-1 lead into halftime...outshooting the Bobcats 6-1.

Paige Monson made it 3-1 UofL seven minutes into the second half. It was (Schneidt)Miller time after that...her two consecutive scores gave the Cards a 5-1 lead. Michelle Amon closed the scoring for Louisville in the 60th. minute of play on an assist from Shannon Sloss.

Nice attendance for the match with over 500 fans in the stands. Justine Sowry commented on the victory:

"We can still take lessons out of it and we'll take a look at how we played and address that for next week. Overall, I'm really happy that we had contributions all over the field."

Louisville travels for their next two....facing UC Davis (Friday) and Michigan (Saturday) in Ann Arbor, MI. Both are 1 p.m. starts.

Mitchell scores in overtime to give Soccer 3-2 win

One thing we know about Karen Ferguson Dayes soccer squad. They play a lot of overtime contests. One exhibition and three regular season games have seen extra time.

Five minutes into overtime on Sunday, Charlyn Corral set up Nicole Mitchell for a pass. The ball got deflected but Mitchell tracked it down for the game ender...a blast into the right side of the net. Louisville dominated offensively...22-11 advantage in shots attempted (10 by Corral) and a 8-6 edge on shots on goal.

It looked rough for the Cards (2-2-1) early. The RedHawks scored in the 16th. minute and kept Corral & Co. scoreless for the first half. Louisville held a 10-3 shot advantage...still no goals. Miami made it 2-0 less than a minute in the second half.

It served as a wake up call to the Cards and Corral. Nine minutes into the half Corral corralled a miss by Christine Exeter and kicked it past a charging Miami goalie to get Louisville within one. Less than a minute later, Corral struck again...booming one in from 15 yards out to tie it.

The next 35 minutes remained scoreless.

In the overtime, Corral nearly won it for Louisville two minutes into the extra session, firing dead on goal and hitting the top crossbar. Three minutes later, she set up Mitchell for the final goal.

Miami coach Bobby Kramig on the loss:

"On the game winner...we had a little bit of a dive-in on a tackle at midfield and then we missed a check back. Those things happen at the end of games. It was 90 degrees out there. I'm still proud of our effort."

(Yeah...what Bobby said...I'm missing a check, too. A reality one. Note to self...ask Coach Dayes about dive-ins and check backs)

Louisville return home for games against Morehead St. on Friday @ 5 p.m. and Uinversity of Texas - San Antonio on Sunday @ 1 p.m.
