The Cards wasted no time making it 4-0 when the second half began. Sloss rebounded a shot from Victoria Stratton just two minutes into the final frame and drove it home for her second score of the afternoon. With nine minutes expired in the second half...Alyssa Voelmle also converted on a penalty stroke to make it 5-0 Cards.

The Wildcats got their lone goal with 10 minutes left in the contest.

Volleyball Sweeps UConn



Brooke Mattingly hit .500 against the Huskies.

Brooke Mattingly hit .500 against the Huskies.
    Brooke Mattingly had 12 kills and six blocks to lead the University of Louisville to a 25-13, 25-19, 25-16 win over UConn to stay unbeaten in the American Athletic Conference volleyball Sunday afternoon in Storrs, Conn. in a nationally televised match on ESPNU.   "Emily Juhl did a phenomenal job of filling in for the injured Haley Pouliezos and her passing kept us in system and allowed the middles to hit .500 and .625 which opened up the outsides on the pins. Juhl's serves kept UConn out of system and she is a heck of a weapon back at the service line," said U of L head coach Anne Kordes.   Juhl had 10 kills with 11 digs and three aces. Maya McClendon had her eighth double-double of the season with 10 kills and 11 digs. She also posted a pair of aces. U of L, 14-8, 9-0, hit .333 on the match and outblocked the Huskies 8-3 with eight total aces.   In the first set, U of L used a 5-0 run early and then slowly pulled away from the Huskies, who were hampered by .091 hitting. Louisville put together a 7-2 run late for the 25-13 win. The Cards hit .452 and had two blocks and four aces, three of which were from Juhl. Brooke Mattingly connected for five kills and two blocks.   In the second set, UConn tied at five and then built a 10-8 lead. The team traded points until Katie George served for four straight including an ace to give U of L some breathing room at 15-12 and force the Huskies to burn their final timeout. The Cards had a 9-4 run late for the 25-19 win.


In the third set, the Cards roared out to a 12-4 lead but UConn's .081 hitting quelled their comeback attempt as the Huskies fell 25-16.
