Lacrosse Takes Down Cincinnati -- Weekend Schedule -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Lacrosse Takes Down Cincinnati at LLS


Four players recorded hat tricks as the Louisville lacrosse team took down an old Big East rival Cincinnati, 18-12.

Kayla Marshall and Shayla Scanlan led the Cards with four goals each while Tessa Chad and Ally Hall had three goals apiece.

The Cards raced out to a 5-0 lead in the first six and a half minutes, but Cincinnati had an answer.  The Bearcats went on a four-goal spurt.  UofL finished the first half on their own four-goal run for a 9-4 lead.


Cincinnati scored the first goal of the second half but Louisville's 6-0 run in a seven minute span put the game out of reach.  The Bearcats scored seven of the final 10 goals of the game, but Louisville won the half -8, and ultimately the game.

Louisville has found success lately, winning three of their last four with the only loss being a triple-overtime sudden death defeat against #15 Duke.

Coach Scott Teeter focused on consistency during the postgame press conference.  The Cards have had no trouble with execution at times during games but it comes and goes, which has hurt them in a couple losses.


UofL improves to 4-6 on the season, just two wins shy of matching last year's win total.  They will host Syracuse at home on Sunday at noon.  As always, admission is free.

Here is the Go Cards video of the postgame with Coach Teeter, Tessa Chad (left), and Kayla Marshall (right).  The audio is a bit soft so I'm hoping Paulie will add an audio clip to this.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Rookie on the recording. I've have added my audio below the video.

Weekend Scheduling


Softball opens ACC play at home with a three-game series against Syracuse.  The Cards have won 10 of their last 11 and are 17-7 overall on the year.  The Orange come in at 8-14 and have been on the wrong side of seven mercy rule games this year.

Louisville is coming off back-to-back mercy rule victories over Morehead State Tuesday night.  Syracuse heads down the road from Lexington, where Kentucky won 13-0 in five innings.



The weather has altered the Friday game, pushing the start time up to 3:00 p.m.  They'll also play on Saturday at 1:00 p.m., and Sunday at noon.

Lacrosse also will take on Syracuse.  Their match-up against the 7-2 Orange.  Their losses came against #1 Boston College and #2 Maryland, both of which came down to the wire.

Women's golf is enjoying vacation-esque weather in the Dominican Republic in the Tar Heel Classic.  They will compete on both Friday and Saturday.


Rowing opens up their season down in Tennessee at the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational.  The Cards will host the event and welcome 11 other programs.

Clemson, Miami, Notre Dame, and Virginia are the other ACC schools represented at the regatta and five of the teams present are ranked in the Top 20.  The Cards come in at #26.

Other than softball and lacrosse campus should be rather quiet as students wrap up their spring break and prepare to start back up on Monday.

Paulie is back in town and will be accompanied by Worldwide, Case, and Daryl.  I will be back to my Saturday banking activities.  Keep an eye out on what St Patrick's Day shenanigans the knuckleheads might have in the studio as well as what might be available on campus for the holiday Sunday.

  1. Glad Lacrosse wins. It has been a brutal last nine days for them. Teeter continuing. it appears to build team his way. Thanks for the audio addition Paulie. Who's doing those video records? Surely not Jared.

    Ol' Curtis off work a few days. Severe hand cut while off-loading a semi. Stitches and such. I'll survive but can't handle anything with right hand nor type with it. You ever tried entering a comment with your left hand when you're right-handed?

  2. Hey ho! DAVE-O here!

    So, everyone's favorite whipping boy, Charlie Creme (no sugar) has updated his bracketology thoughts. To no surprise, he has the Cards as the #2 seed in the Albany region. Obviously, Charlie slept through the UConn vs. Louisville game.

    Other ACC schools:

    #3 NC State -- Greensboro
    #9 Clemson -- Greensboro

    #3 Syracuse -- Albany
    #9 UNC -- Albany

    #1 Notre Dame -- Chicago
    #6 FSU -- Chicago

    #3 Miami -- Portland

    First off, VA Tech is listed as a "first four out". This is inconceivable to me. They won 20 games! They have two of the brightest stars in the ACC in Taylor Emery and Regan Magarity. An up and coming coach in Kenny Brooks. I say "horse-feathers", the Hokies should be included.

    Next, why three teams for the ACC in Albany and just one in Portland?
    It's possible, according to Charlie that Louisville would have to play Syracuse in opening action in Albany. This stinks like rotten salmon.

    Finally -- Shipping UCLA to Albany and Indiana to Portland? Does this make sense? How about the preferred treatment of NC State having the chance to play in Greensboro...as a #3 seed -- this is ridiculous.

    Fortunately, Creme's thoughts are just that. Let's hope he has flawed thinking.

    I will make the argument for Louisville getting a #1 seed but that would probably mean they would go to Portland, which would surely be a disappointment for Cardinal fans wishing to travel as Louisville progresses in the dance.

    How does Tennessee rank a #11 seed? Maybe Charlie thinks Pat Summit is still alive and coaching? 19-12 season, a six game losing streak in-season, a loss to Vandy and 7-9 in conference? Horse feathers, again, I say. Why prolong Holly's misery any longer? Offer them a WNIT bid and watch some non-existent directional state team blow them out in the first round. In Knoxville.

    That ought to cook Phil Fulmer's grits al dente. And, the thinking from the high and mighty Vols fan base now is that UT should go after
    Kim Mulkey now, instead of Walz. Oh, boy.

    1. I no longer pay attention to Creme. They (the committee) wouldn't put 3 teams from the same conference in the same region unless they had to, only if one conference had nine teams in. But three in one while another had one doesn't work.
      Louisville gets the #1 in Portland with Oregon as the #2. Work cut out any way you slice it, gotta beat somebody to get to somebody else.

    2. Creme lost credibility for me a long time back, but, last year when he kept riding and whipping that UConn horse -- let's face it -- he's a paid talking head for ESPN -- paid to promote UConn because that is ESPN's darling -- him, Lobo and others.

      They should call the network CSPN -- Connecticut Sports Programming Network.
