Women's soccer defeats Toledo 4-1

-Freshman Christine Exeter leads soccer to the win
-UofL vs. UK in football today!
The University of Louisville womens' soccer team went to 4-0 with a 4-1 win over Toledo last night in Cardinal Park. Christine Exeter, pictured left, scored twice for the ranked #23 in the nation.
Toledo took an early lead in the contest, scoring their only goal in the 20th minute on chip shot by Erin Flynn. Louisville was up for the challenge, though and quickly tied the game when senior Caitlin Rehder slammed a shot in from close range. Exeter got her first goal of the game a few minutes later..driving one by Toledo goalie Vicki Travern...thanks to key assists by Rehder and Angelika Uremovich. The Cards took the 2-1 lead to the end of the first half.
Louisville got a charged up in the final half early from a flying save by sophomore goalie Taylor Vancil of a shot on goal. The Cards picked up their third score when Uremovich nailed a penalty kick past Travern at the 67 minute mark of the game. Exeter scored her second goal and closed out the scoring late in the match with an exciting takeaway and drive to the Toledo goal...where she booted one deep into the net from about 18 yards out.
The Cards (4-0) are off to their best start in school history. They out shot Toledo 18-10 and goalie Vancil contributed two spectacular saves for ensure the victory.
Next for the Cards, the Kentucky Wildcats at Cardinal Park on Thursday, Sept. 9th. Fox Soccer Channel will televise the 7 p.m. game.
We're off to the Parrish House in a few to tailgate and enjoy the 3:30 p.m. football game against Kentucky today. A sold out crowd of 55,000+ will enjoy clear skies and mid-seventy degree weather for the nationally televised contest.
I expect to see a close game that features the running skills of both teams and the difference maker in this one could very well be who has the ball last. Both Sonja and I are predicting a Louisville victory this afternoon and we'll have a summation of the epic battle...along with updates on field hockey and volleyball tomorrow.
