Field Hockey falls in OT to Stanford...Women's Hoops today! -- Sunday Cardinal Couple

Overtime goal end Field Hockey season at 15-6

A tough way to end an outstanding season.

Alex McCawley gathered a loose ball in the circle off goalie Sydney King's pads as she tried to prevent Lauren Becker from scoring and sent it into the net 3:42 into overtime to defeat Louisville 2-1 in Storrs, CT Saturday afternoon. 

Stanford took a 1-0 lead just 3:12 into the contest when Becker scored on an assist from Kasey Quan. The Cards rallied to tie at the 24:58 mark when Chile Garcia connected on a penalty corner feed from Mallory Mason and assist from Paige Monson.

That completed the scoring in regulation...the Cards getting outshot by the Cardinal 5-3 in the second half but keeping the Stanford squad from scoring. 

Justine Sowry sums up the loss:

"We are incredibly disappointed in the end result. We prepared for them well and we left it all out on the field, but we came up a little short. ..the whole group is devastated. I want to say how proud I am of our seniors adn our leadership group and what they've built over the last four years for this program. They have left a legacy that we will continue to build on." 

No regrets. A team that defeated #1 and #4 in the nation and battled to the end.

Jazmen Russell celebrated her senior night with 22 kills to lead Wake Forest to a 28-26, 25-19, 25-16 sweep of the University of Louisville in ACC volleyball action Saturday night in Winston-Salem, N.C.

"This was a disappointing loss, not because of our opponent because Wake played an outstanding match, but because I did not see any leadership from our leftside hitters," said UofL head coach Anne Kordes. "Russell played like the ACC Player of the Year tonight, you could tell she wanted to go out on her senior night on a high note. I need to see some leadership and we only have three more games for it to come out."

The Cards were led by Maya McClendon's 11 kills and Janelle Jenkins'nine kills and two blocks. UofL drops to 7-8 in the ACC and 15-12 overall. Wake Forest improves to 15-13 and 5-9 in the league. Wake had 56 kills to UofL's 39 and outdug the Cards 38-23.

In the first set, after neither team could pull away, the Cards ran off five straight to get set point. Wake Forest tied at 24, 25, and 26 and then a kill by Jazmen Russell, her ninth of the set gave the win to the Deacons at 28-26.

In the second set, Wake used a 6-0 run midway through to take a 17-9 lead. The Cards pushed back but had no answer for Russell, who had 11 kills in the set and had WFU hitting at a torrid .567. UofL scored once after set point to make it 24-19 but a kill by Kylie Long gave the win to Wake.

Wake Forest had a 7-1 run in the third set to go up 15-8. The Cards put together a little push late but after pulling to within four at 20-16, Wake ran off five straight for the 25-16 win and the sweep.
