CORRAL'S LATE SCORE BEATS HUSKIES
Charlyn Corral's unassisted score with less than seven minutes left in regulation gave Louisville the 3-2 lead against UConn in Marrone Stadium Sunday afternoon in AAC play.
With the win, Louisville goes to 11-4-1 overall and 7-1 in the AAC. UConn falls to 10-7 and 4-3 in the conference.
UofL opened the scoring with 27 minutes left in first half action when Erin Yenney booted a 30 yard attempt from the center of the field. The Huskies countered with five minutes left in the first session and the teams went to the half deadlocked at 1-1.
UConn's Stephanie Riberio notched her second goal of the game after nine minutes of second half play but the Cards were able to respond five minutes later...Corral getting a pass to Christine Exeter to tie it at 2-2.
Corral's game winner came with 6:20 left...a shot that bounced off the inside of the left goalpost and into the net. Strong Cardinal defense kept the Huskies without a shot on goal the rest of the way.
The regular season comes to an end on Friday, Oct 25th. at 7 p.m. with the Cards travelling to Cincinnati.
KING'S SHUTOUT IN THE PIPES HELPS CARDS 2-0
In a battle of top 25 schools...a career high 10 saves by sophomore goalie Sydney King kept #11 Northwestern at bay and #17 Louisville closed out the weekend with a 2-0 win over the Wildcats in Trager Stadium.
Louisville grabbed their first score eight minutes into action...a penalty corner sequence that saw Becca Maddock returning a missed attempt by Alyssa Voelmle. That score would take UofL into the halftime break in charge...despite Northwestern holding a 5-3 advantage in shots.
Another penalty corner opportunity gave the Cards the 2-0 lead...Victoria Stratton connecting on a set by Paige Monson from a Erin Schneidtmiller pass.
King got seven of her 10 saves in the final 35 minutes to take Justine Sowry's squad to 12-4 on the season. A road trip to Villanova is next for the Cards.

MAMA, THOSE TWO BOYS ARE ON THE RADIO AGAIN!!
We did miss co-host Jenny O'Bryan on our Saturday Radio show...but managed to struggle through it and deliver credible (if not somewhat mundane) sporting reports on Cardinal women's athletics. All this despite an ailing Paulie and sleep-deprived Jeff.
