Cardinal women's soccer kicks by EKU 4-1

Saturday CARDINAL COUPLE covers:
-Cards soccer opens with a win
-Volleyball scrimmage today.
-APPLE tournament final
-Field Hockey at Trager this afternoon
The University of Louisville women's soccer team started the 2010 season off the right way with a 4-1 win over Eastern Kentucky University last night at Cardinal Park. The Cards displayed a youth movement last night with goals from freshmen Christine Exeter, Julie Casselman, Angelika Uremovich and sophomore Emily Cardell. The Cards out shot the Colonels 18-6 and didn't allow a goal until the late stages of the contest. Taylor Vancil defensed the net well for Louisville...making three saves.
The Volleyball Cards will play an exhibition match against its alumnae today in Cardinal Arena at 2 p.m. Admission is free.
Sacred Heart had no trouble with the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats yesterday in the finals of the APPLE tournament field hockey game. Sacred Heart scored in the first three minutes of the game on a nice steal and rip by Emily Stewart and the Valkyries never looked back. Stewart had two scores on the day for Sacred Heart (4-0) which led 3-0 at the half.
Country Day did manage to score the first goal of the season on Sacred Heart late in the contest but the Bearcats had difficulties all afternoon against the stout Valkyries defense.
This marks the seventh straight APPLE tournament championship for Sacred Heart and four Valkyries players were selected to the all-tournament team. Sacred Heart outscored the opposition 24-1 over the 4 game tournament action.
Pam Bustin's UofL field hockey squad takes to Trager Field for a 1 p.m. exhibition against Kent State this afternoon. Sounds like a great day to be on campus with field hockey then volleyball for the Lady Cards.
THREE SISSIES failed to fire for trainer Jeffrey Sheets in yesterday's second race at Ellis Park yesterday. The 3 yr. old filly broke slowly, fell far back behind the leaders and struggled to finish 9th in a field of 12. It was only a slight improvement from her debut in her second lifetime outing and it looks like she may have to descend in the claiming ranks to be competitive.
