SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE -- Soccer, Volleyball win on road



SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

- Soccer escapes at UC in overtime

- Volleyball takes 4 game match in Piscataway

- RADIO TODAY!


SOCCER KICKS IT IN AGAINST BEARCATS

Stop me if you've heard this one before. The University of Louisville women's soccer team won in overtime 5-4. Oh, yeah...and the sun will come up this morning.

The Cards are 12-4-1. Almost half of the total games have gone into the "golden goal" extra session. The Cards are getting more overtime than a snow plow operator in blizzard conditions. And...it's beneficial. They are 4-2-1 when they go past the 90 minute mark.

Last night in Southern Ohio, the scoring started almost right after the National Anthem. UC took and early 1-0 lead after two minutes of play. The Bearcats were playing for a top four seed in the AAC Tournament and a win would keep them in the running for that...coupled with a Rutgers loss. 

Louisville responded two minutes later...Charlyn Corral setting up Devyn Ciotti in the box to even it up. Louisville had a lot on the line as well. A Cardinal win and UCF loss on Sunday puts Louisville alone in first place.

In a see-saw battle, UC regained the lead in the 12th. minute of action. Two minutes later, here came the Cards again. This time it was X getting Shannon Dennehey a cross and seeing it converted into netsville.

UC inisisted on returning the favor in the 27th. minute and took that 3-2 lead to the half. UC had a 12-5 shot advantage on the Cards.

Karen Ferguson-Dayes replaced Paige Brown, arguably the best goalie in the AAC, with Taylor Smith in the final half. The Bearcats welcomed the freshman from PeeWee Valley and Christian Academy to the field by scoring on her six minutes into action to grab a 4-2 advantage.

It would be the last UC goal of the evening.

Seniors X and Char combined with 37 minutes left in regulation to draw the Cards closer at 4-3....Char feeding X for the net-finder. Four minutes later, UofL tied it up...this time X feeding Dennehey. The teams played the final 33 minutes of the half to a draw.


Paulie said put a picture of the bracket
up...so here you go.  -Timmy the Intern.
Louisville captialized in the fourth minute of overtime when UC was flagged for a foul inside the box. Penalty kick time and Erin Yenney provided the golden goal to end it.

The Cards will host a quarterfinal ACC Tournament match on Nov 3rd. The bracket matchups will be released after Sunday action. Right now...it's wide open on who will come to Cardinal Park to face the Kickin' Cards. The top eight regular season finishers advance to tourney play.

JUHL RULES IN FOUR GAME WIN AGAINST RUTGERS


Senior Emily Juhl unleashed the powerful left arm against the Scarlet Knights last night...getting 21 kills in a 23-25, 25-10, 25-17, 25-20 win over the hapless Rutgers Volleyball contingent. (Good luck in the BIG 10 with this bunch).

THIS IS DINO
Defensive specialist and usual starter Haley Pouliezos was reportedly injured in warmups and did not play for Louisville. Maybe it shook the Cards up a bit...they lost the first game to the "0 for Conference" Scarlet Knights by two...unforced errors and Rutgers aces on serves putting UofL behind early.

Louisville shook it off and repsonded with a 15-point blistering of the New Jersey school in game two. Katie George served for nine straight points in the romp. Juhl had five of her kills in this one.

Juhl tried her hand at serving after the intermission and ran five straight against RU in game three. She also added five more kills. Titanium power!

THIS IS DOCTOR TED.
Louisville rolled out to a 13-6 lead in game four but Rutgers
wasn't quite ready to close the RAC yet...battling back to get within one at 20-19. The Cards got a couple of timely kills from Stomp Mattingly, though, and went on a game and match ending 5-1 run.

Louisville is now 13-7 on the season...8-0 in The American and travels to UCONN next for a Sunday tilt that will be televised on ESPNU at 1 p.m.

MAMA...THEM PEOPLE IS TALKIN' ON THE RADIO AGAIN!

Based on the overwhelmingly successful article we borrowed and posted on UK Thursday...we'll be bringing Matthew Mitchell, John Calipari, Ashley Judd and Joe B. Hall into the studio this morning for conversations, mud-wrestling and pizza.

Just kidding....

WE do have an excellent show prepared, though, with plenty of volleyball, soccer, field hockey, tennis and a quiz!
Maybe Jenny will even wander in a tell us about what's shakin' in basketball.

It's always interesting and always commercial free. With
Dead Air Al at the control panel...we never really know what to expect. The link below will get you there...
