Sunday recap for volleyball, women's soccer and field Hockey -- Monday Cardinal Couple


SOCCER TIES DUKE


"Look, I'm going to Lynn, you're staying home and
watching Volleyball on the internet...got it?
(Worldwide and Paulie discuss Sunday coverage.)
Ah, the fun and multi-tasking of trying to follow three UofL women's sporting events ...all going on at the same time and in three different cities. We made our home base in Lynn Stadium yesterday and, thanks to Twitter and the internet, were able to keep up on Volleyball at Clemson and Field Hockey in Columbus, OH. 

It was a defensive struggle between Karen Ferguson-Dayes Kickin' Cards and the visitors from Durham, NC. Defensive in two different ways...Louisville kept turning away Duke shots (the Blue Devils attempted 24, compared to Louisville's mere six attempts). Duke, meanwhile, was preventing the Cards from getting any good looks...the Cards had zero shots on goal.


This one ended up 0-0 after two overtimes and goalie Taylor Bucklin shone for the Cards with 10 saves in the 110 minutes of action. Credit her, Inger Katrine Bjerke, Hannah Konermann and the rest of the stout Louisville defense for giving Duke (7-4-4, 1-2-3) their fourth tie of the season. Duke got off more shots than Elmer Fudd during rabbit season...but none of them got past Bucklin.


Louisville (7-5-3, 3-2-1) will now prepare for their third test in this gauntlet of four top-ranked ACC foes when Florida State, #2 in the nation, comes to town Saturday night.

Hear Paulie's postgame interviews with Coach Ferguson-Dayes, Taylor Bucklin and Inger (K.B.) Katrine-Bjerke at the link below:

VOLLEYBALL SWEEPS THE CLEMSON TIGERS

Erin Fairs led a balanced Louisville Volleyball attack in the sweep of the Clemson Tigers down in Clemson, SC. 

She recorded 15 kills in a 25-14, 25-15, 25-19 caging of the felines. Louisville stays under defeated in the ACC with six wins. 

Anne Kordes was impressed with the blocking and serving:

" I thought our blockers, Maggie DeJong and Tess Clark were impressive today. They came up with 15 kills between them. I like to see them in the offense and not just blocking also thought our serving subs Gabbie Wiley and Lyndsey Palmer, who had three aces between them, gave us a great punch from the service line.

The Wide Net Cards will defend the ACC perfection this weekend in the KFC YUM! Center with a Friday match against Wake Forest and a Sunday contest against Duke.

Louisville has lost only two out of 18 ACC games so far this season and it looks like Worldwide's predicition that the Cards could win eight straight matches in a row has some serious credibility to it as the Cards continue to win and improve.

KAHLERT'S SCORE LEADS FIELD HOCKEY PAST BUCKEYES 


In a post-game interview with Justine Sowry after the Syracuse game, it was offered that it might be a blessed relief to step outside of ACC Conference play in facing Ohio State on Sunday. Coach Sowry was quick in pointing out that the Buckeyes were an ACC caliber and quality foe and she expected a tough contest.

Coach Sowry's prediction was dead on, as the Cards took a tough 1-0 win over OSU in Columbus on Sunday afternoon.

Junior Lotta Kahlert followed up on Victoria Stratton's penalty attempt, took the rebound on the missed shot and tapped it into the net for the game's only tally.

The Cards controlled the statistics...out-shooting the Bucs 12-4 and had a 8-1 advantage in penalty corner attempts.

Sowry was proud of the outcome:

"Another tough opponent gave us some challenges today. We are improving in these games. We had great awareness and stayed disciplined defensively and we showed more poise in possession of the ball. I am very proud that we came out with a positive result against a very good team"

Louisville improves to 8-5 and remains unbeaten against non-conference foes. The Stick Cards will travel to Boston College on Friday and return home to face Northeastern Sunday.

GOLF FINISHES THIRD IN TARHEEL INVITATIONAL


A thumbs-up to the University of Louisville women's golf team for finishing third in the prestigious TarHeel Invitational this weekend. 

Molly Skapic gathered third place individual honors in the three-day event for the Chip-and-Putt Cards. 

An impressive three-day effort for Louisville...who finished ahead of a host of Golfweek's top-50 programs, including No. 2 Alabama, No. 11 Virginia, No. 14 Tennessee, No. 28 Oregon, No. 30 LSU, No. 34 South Carolina, and No. 35 Auburn.
