Women's Soccer Cards scalped by Noles 6-0 -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

The fifth-ranked Florida State (9-1-0, 2-0-0 ACC) soccer
 team defeated Louisville 6-0 in Talahassee last night. (4-5-0, 1-1-0 ACC) 6-0 on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Cardinals
 The Cards were held to a season low with one shot in the match.
 Florida State had 21.

Florida State held most of the possession in the first half
fwhich paid off with a goal by Megan CampbellMegan Campbell in the 16th minute of play.  The Cardinal defense held tight and Cardinal keeper
Paige Brown collected four saves in the first half.

Florida State held a 10-0 shot advantage in the first half.
  They also held a 3-1 corner kick advantage.
Could the Louisville defense keep the opportunistic FSU 
offense out of the goal in the final
45 minutes and find a way to break through the iron curtain
 the Noles were representing with their
back four? 

Sadly it didn't happen for Louisville

Cheyna Williams scored two goals in the first three
 minutes of the second half to break the game
 open for the Seminoles.  The Seminoles continued
 to dominate possession and control the clock
 throughout the second half.

 Brown finished with a season-high six saves.
 She needed 14 more.

A first test against one of the elite ACC women's 
soccer teams and a tutorial on what it will
take to climb onto that top rung of the ladder.
 The Seminoles seemed a step quicker, were
organized in their offensive attack and had little
 trouble breaking up any Cardinal attempt
to move to the goal. We've said it many times
 this season and we'll repeat it again. This
is a very young squad Karen Ferguson Dayes
 coaches...with 12 freshman on the roster. 

The question is...does Louisville learn and 
improve from this slaughter on national television
or do they sink even further down as the stakes
 and the opponent level increases?

The Cardinals will continue road play at Miami 
on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 1:00 p.m.

Louisville Volleyball gets the ACC slate

 started tonight with a 7 p.m. match

against Boston College. The Eagles are 

5-6 on the season. The Cards ran the

table in the AAC last year (18-0) but 

the odds are astronomical that they can

do that in the tougher ACC. 

Maya McClendon and Janelle Jenkins
lead Louisville in kills this season.
