Women's Soccer Schedule Change
We have not gotten to the first home match of the year for Louisville women's soccer and we already have a schedule change. Louisville women's soccer has moved their kickoff against Syracuse this Thursday to 4:00 p.m.
Although the reason for the time change is unknown there are plenty of guesses. Most likely, the match has been moved up to accommodate TV. The Cards and Orange are set to be on ACC Network. There is always the chance it has something to do with travel arrangements for Syracuse or the forecast- a low of 44 degrees Thursday. The curfew has been lifted for Louisville, so it probably isn't that. Still, TV accommodation makes the most sense. The match is on the ACC Network.
From a viewing and photography stand-point, Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium can get dark during night games. Lights can only do so much, but whether you are watching on TV, online, or looking at pictures, the image is noticeably clearer when there is plenty of sunlight, which there should be in this case.
The Orange opened their season with a 2-0 loss at Pitt. The Panthers, who are already 3-0-0 on the year, had 12 shots on goal that match. The Cards come into the match 1-1, back from their Sunshine State soiree where they defeated Miami and lost to FSU.
Paulie and I will be in attendance to cover this match.
