Saturday Cardinal Couple -- Lacrosse downs the Owls


- Strong second half leads Louisville Lacrosse to win

Louisville Lacrosse gathered their fifth win in a row against Temple in Philadelphia Friday afternoon with a 15-6 beating of the Owls. The Cards are now 3-0 in BIG EAST play and 9-3 for the season.

It was a slow start for Kellie Young's team, scoring just four goals in the first half. They held Temple to two in the same time frame, though. UofL's Nikki Boltja had the game opener...the first of her team-high five on the afternoon.

Louisville got rolling in the final 30 minutes, outscoring the Owls 11-4. Kaylin Morissette scored twice to begin action. After Temple got their first score of the second half, Faye Brust went back-to-back on scores. Another Temple goal cut the Louisville lead to six...but the Cards responded with a 6-0 run to put the game out of reach for the Owls.

Nikki Boltja began the run and Cortnee Daley followed with a score less than a minute later. Jamie Redding found the back of the net next and it was suddenly 11-4 Louisville. The Cards weren't done...Boltja scoring again and Brust adding two more in a row.

In addition to Botja's five goals, Brust had four and Daley three for Louisville.

The Cards make the long trip from Temple to Villanova for a Sunday game that starts at noon.


The Saturday CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR this morning will be an interesting one...since there isn't a whole lot of women's basketball news out there right now. WBB has been the focal point of our weekly broadcasts for the last six or seven we'll take a look at the spring sports and spend the rest of the time throwing paperwads at each other or making prank calls. 

Tune in, be amazed. 11 a.m. Link below:
