FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
- Strong first half gives Cards win in Philly
- Volleyball travels to Cincy for Friday match
Louisville women's soccer picked up their tenth win of the season yesterday afternoon in Philly...scoring three goals in the first half and eventually downing Temple 3-1.
The Cards got onto the scoreboard four minutes into the game when Charlyn Corral delivered a feed to Erin Yenney...who booted it home past Owls goalie Shauni Kerkoff.
Louisville increased the lead to 2-0 when Casey Whitfield set up Shannon Dennehey in the box at the thirteen minute mark. The Cards completed their portion of the scoring with 152 seconds left in the first stanza...Nicole Gerber bouncing one in unassisted.
Temple would score five minutes into second half play...a defensive struggle took up the remaining 40 minutes.
The Cards had a wide advantage in shots (26-6) and shots on goal (11-1). Kerkoff was busy between the pipes with eight saves.
Louisville heads to Storrs, CT next for a noon showdown with the Huskies Sunday.
