CARDS DROP DEFENSIVE STRUGGLE TO WAHOOS
This match went 73 minutes without a score...a typical UofL strong defensive effort with limited offense...before the #2 Virginia Cavaliers got a header on a corner from freshman Brianna Westrup.
Westrup...making her first start of the season filling in for senior Emily Sonnett who is traveling with the US Women's National team this week...headed the ball into the upper corner past Louisville goalie Taylor Bucklin with 17 minutes left in play to improve the Cavs record to 12-1-1 and 6-1-0 in the ACC.
Another contest where the opponent had a clear shot and corner advantage but the Cards defense stood strong and was in the contest until the final seconds.
Louisville ( 7-7-2, 3-4-1) drops to ninth in the conference standings and is eliminated from any chance to play in the ACC Women's Soccer tournament...which takes the top four teams. The Kickin' Cards travel to NC State next for a Sunday match and will end the regular season at Wake Forest next Saturday. Louisville would probably need to win both to keep any remote chances of making the NCAA Tournament alive.
