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.
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.
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.
AUDIO: LOUISVILLE LACROSSE DISCUSSES 3-14-19 WIN OVER CINCINNATI
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.
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.
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.
