Field Hockey tops UConn 3-2 in O.T.


-Field Hockey wins!

Before a record crowd at Trager Stadium, the UofL field hockey team downed #5 UConn 3-2 in overtime.

Louisville got two goals from Hayley Turner...both on assists from Nicole Youman...the final one the decision maker.

The Cards (7-3, 2-1) opened up the scoring when Nikki Auker took a feed from Simone Attles and found the net. Auker scored a goal also back in 2008...the last time Louisville beat Connecticut. Louisville was able to take that lead to halftime.

UConn tiedthe contest midway through second half and minutes later took a 2-1 lead. Nicole Youman found Turner, though...on a feed to tie it with about a minute left. We talked to Youman Thursday and she stressed to us that she hoped that with UConn keying on her...her teammates might benefit.

That proved to be the case in overtime. Youman got the ball to Turner again and the same result the Cards the contest.

Louisville returns to action Sunday to face St. Louis in Trager Stadium.


Kim Grieshaber finished 4th and the UofL Cross Country squad 6th overall in the Louisville Cross Country meetat E.P. 'Tom' Sawyer Park.
