Thursday Cardinal Couple -- Soccer hits the road...Softball releases schedule


-Temple awaits Kickin' Cards

-Softball releases schedule

The Owls.


Seems like Louisville athletic squads have been in  battles with the Philadelphia school a lot lately. Karen Ferguson-Dayes' soccer team gets their turn in the birdbath today with a 3:00 p.m. start against Temple in Philadelphia.

It'll be the first match in history between the two in soccer.

Temple comes into the contest with a 6-7-1 record and 1-4 in the AAC. They fell the last time out to UConn 3-1...a team Louisville will face in Storrs, CT on Sunday.

The Cards, who at times this year have been scoring-challenged, will face the AAC leader in shutouts in sophomore goalie Shauni Kerkoff...who has seven "no soup for you" efforts on the season. Against UConn, she an amazing night with 15 saves.

UofL, who is 9-4-1 overall and 5-1 in the AAC, fell 1-0 to UCF on Sunday. It was the first time the Cards had been blanked since Labor Day weekend. Another goalie of note, Louisville's Paige Brown, had eight saves against the UCF Knights.

This one could very well be decided a lone score. The question is...which team will kick it?


The 2014 Cardinal softball schedule has been released and it looks to be a challenging one for Sandy Pearsall's sluggers

12 participants from the 2013 NCAA tournament are on the docket. #8 Michigan, #11 Missouri, #14 Kentucky and #21 UCLA will all do battle with the BatCards.

Things get underway Feb 7-9 in Boca Raton, FL. Louisville plays in the FAU Kickoff Classic and will get their swings in against Ohio St., St. John's, Northern Illinois and host FAU.

The Cards will head to Jacksonville the following weekend for another four games...facing Missouri, Notre Dame, UNC and host Jacksonville.

The home opener will take place Feb. 21st. when the Cards
host the Cardinal Classic. EKU, IUPUI and Central Michigan lace them up in Ulmer to challenge Fowler and company.

A trip to California ends Feb. and ushers in March where the Cards will participate in Cal State-Fullerton's Mayfair Tournament. UCLA, Oregon State, Northwestern, UC-Santa Barbara and host Cal State Fullerton will also swing for the fences in this one.

Louisville returns home for 10 straight games beginning March 7th. after the west coast jaunt...the Red and Black Classic brings UMass, Ohio U., Illinois State, and THE OHIO STATE University. The following weekend...The Louisville Classic will pit the Cards against Michigan and Wisconsin.

Louisville will travel to Bowling Green for a March 19 battle with the WKU Hilltoppers and then start AAC play three days later when Rutgers visits. Former BIG EAST for DePaul comes to town on the 26th. Louisville hits the road to strike out Houston and USF the next two weekends.

The game goes down on April 2nd. Louisville will get a return match in Ulmer on April 30th.

Other foes include UConn @ Ulmer, at UCF, Temple @ Ulmer and a trip to Memphis winds up the regular season May 3rd-4th.
