MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
- Louisville Field Hockey downs Northeastern @ Trager
- Golf ends up sixth in Knoxville
Sometimes...good things come to those who wait. The Louisville Field Hockey team found themselves trailing 1-0 to Northeastern with 14 minutes left in the game. The Cards were victims of a relentless Huskies defensive wall that kept Louisville scoreless...despite the Cards regrouping in the second half and actually out-shooting Northeastern 9-1 in the final 45 minutes.
Eventually, something had to find the back of the net for Louisville and after four straight corner attempts...Kelsey Rosenmeier found Erin Schneidtmiller with a pass and Schneidtmiller fired the ball past the Hukies goalie Becky Garner to tie the game.
UofL kept up the offensive pressure and eight minutes later...another penalty corner paid off for the Cards. This time it was Alyssa Voelmle getting her fifth goal of the season...with assists from Schneidtmiller and Paige Monsen to put the Cards ahead to stay.
Justine Sowry was matter-of-fact about the Cards improving to 6-2 on the season:
" We got a win and that's a great thing, but the process leading up to that was disappointing. Credit Northeastern's defense, they knocked us out of our game. We showed horrendous discipline. The first half we did not play anything like we wanted to play...or the way we normally play. We did make some improvement in the second half."
Sydney King had seven stops at goalie for the Cards...who travel to College Park, MD to face Georgetown in a BIG EAST duel on Saturday, Sept 28th.
