Not in our house -- Louisville Field Hockey boots Wolverines 2-1 in double overtime. Monday Cardinal Couple
LOTTA KAHLERT GETS GAME WINNER IN 2-1 CARDS WIN
The #12th ranked Louisville Field Hockey squad pushed their record to 10-2 and won their 16 straight game in Trager Stadium Sunday with a double-overtime 2-1 win over Michigan.
Shannon Sloss broke free from the UM defense two minutes into the second overtime and found Kahlert open on the left side of the Michigan cage. Kahlert took the pass and slapped it past the Michigan goalie for her fifth goal of the season and the game winner.
This one was a defense battle for the first 35
minutes...each squad getting off only three shots each and no scores. The Wolverines came out after the break and found the net six minutes into the final half. That 1-0 lead held for UM until the Cards capitalized on a corner play with less than five minutes left in regulation. Mallory Mason tracked down a missed Chile Garcia shot on goal and flipped it into the net to tie it up.
The squads battled through a scoreless extra session before Kahlert provided the game winner in the second extra session.
Coach Sowry discusses the win:
" Michigan is a very good team and they are well coached. It was a battle. They play a great style of hockey. We were tired from the last game (Duke). I'm definitely not questioning our character or how tough we are from a mental standpoint...but we have to be smarter with the ball. At the end of the day our team showed a lot of character and it was a great play by Shannon and Lotta."
The Cards take to the road for their next game...an ACC battle against Syracuse on Saturday.
