Saturday Cardinal Couple -- Cards win 2-0 vs. Butler


-Women's Soccer defeats Butler 2-0

-Field Hockey wins scrimmage over IU

-Volleyball Saturday! 

-A wonderful "Journey"

A great way for the fall women's sports at UofL to kickoff Friday...two wins in two games. Here's the scoop.

Louisville women's soccer traveled to Indianapolis to face Butler University and was victorious 2-0 over the Bulldogs. After a scoreless first half, Casey Whitfield got the Cards on the scoreboard in the 54th. minute of play...finding the net on a pass from transfer Charlyn Corral. Minutes later, Angelika Uremovich made it 2-0 Louisville, connecting on a free kick from 35 yards out. 

The Louisville defense was solid in shutting out Butler...Chloe Kiefer with three saves for her 11th. lifetime shutout. Credit goes to the defensive backs for UofL as well, turning away Butler advances time and time again. 

The Soccer Cards return to action Friday Aug. 24th against Purdue.


Louisville Field Hockey had a successful opening exhibition Friday...downing I.U. at Trager Stadium.

Louisville won the regular scrimmage session 3-0. They also bested the Hoosiers in a 7-on-7 set 1-0 and topped the afternoon off with a 3-1 win in a shootout match.

Freshman Victoria Stratton had two goals in the scrimmage and goalie Erin Conrad provided four first half saves for the Cards. 


Volleyball scrimmage tomorrow at Cardinal Arena. It the annual alumnae match and takes place at 6 p.m.

Louisville was picked to finish first in the BIG EAST in a preseason coaches poll, garnering 12 of the 14 first place votes. 

Lola Arslanbeckova selected pre-season BIG EAST Player of the Year. 

Great things ahead for the 2012 Volleyball squad! Season tickets still on sale...why not head out to the Volleyball scrimmage tomorrow and get your seats for the upcoming, exciting action? 


It's very rare we do a concert review here at Cardinal Couple...this is our first as best we can remember...but Journey visited Freedom Hall last night with Pat Benetar and Loverboy...and the show was a great one. 

The Eighties returned to Louisville last night and it was four hours of non-stop hits from the three acts. 

Journey, with most of the original lineup except lead singer, was in great form and had the 18,000 in Freedom Hall rocking for two hours. Arnel Pineda manning the microphone since 2007, sounded just like Steve Perry. Neal Schon can still rock a six-string. 

Kinda weird to be back in the Hall last night...with BIG EAST banner still hanging from the rafters...and memories of Angel, Pervis, Griff and the McCray brothers flashing back to me. The music made it a fun return, though. 

Don't stop believing, Cardinal fans.

Journey is all over the nation the next couple of months. If they hit your area, go. They're worth seeing.
