Friday Cardinal Couple -- Soccer flies past Owls 3-1 -- Volleyball @ UC tonight


- Strong first half gives Cards win in Philly

- Volleyball travels to Cincy for Friday match

Louisville women's soccer picked up their tenth win of the season yesterday afternoon in Philly...scoring three goals in the first half and eventually downing Temple 3-1.

The Cards got onto the scoreboard four minutes into the game when Charlyn Corral delivered a feed to Erin Yenney...who booted it home past Owls goalie Shauni Kerkoff.

Louisville increased the lead to 2-0 when Casey Whitfield set up Shannon Dennehey in the box at the thirteen minute mark. The Cards completed their portion of the scoring with 152 seconds left in the first stanza...Nicole Gerber bouncing one in unassisted.

Temple would score five minutes into second half play...a defensive struggle took up the remaining 40 minutes.

The Cards had a wide advantage in shots (26-6) and shots on goal (11-1). Kerkoff was busy between the pipes with eight saves.

Louisville heads to Storrs, CT next for a noon showdown with the Huskies Sunday.

AAC standings after today:

What they mean, I have no clue...but Louisville is on top and that's pretty sweet.


After a disappointing out-of-conference loss to Wichita State earlier in the week, the VolleyCards look to gain another conference "W" when they visit Jerry Springer's hometown Friday Night to face UC.

The Bearcats aren't the power they once were back in the BIG EAST. Far from it. UC is an embarrassing 0-19, 0-6 on the season and if you thought Anne Kordes had a rebuilding job ahead of her...pity the poor soul who tries to resurrect this once proud program.

Ironically, Kordes started her college volleyball career playing at UC before transferring to Louisville. We expect she'll show a bit of compassion on the wobbling wide-netters in 'NATI.

Louisville is atop the AAC standings with a perfect 6-0 conference record. Temple and UCF have one loss each.

Columnist Jeff McAdams was debating making the northern trip tonight. I hope it's for Octoberfest in Covington and he brings back Yuengling. If he goes to the game, he may need several and Anne Kordes just might ask him to serve a few times...
