Cards shutouts on Sunday -- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Another Sunday, another 1 p.m. start for two UofL women's sports programs. Another couple of victories. An intense 90 minutes follows below...


Lotta Kahlert provided the scoring punch and the Stick Cards defense held firm in a 1-0 out-of-conference win against Northeastern.

Louisville (10-5) found the net seven minutes into the contest when Megan Anstotz sent a cross into the circle for Kahlert. The Hamburg, Germany native sent the ball past Huskies goalie Becky Garner for the lead and only goal of the contest.

Northeastern (4-11) didn't play like  sub .500 squad in a mid-major conference...out-shooting the Cards 11-8 in the 70 minutes and and receiving six corners to Louisville's two.

Ayeshia McFerran picks up her seventh shutout of the season. Louisville is undefeated in non-conference play. 

The Cards start a three-game homestand Sunday, Oct 25th. when Central Michigan visits Trager for a 1 p.m. start. 


Make it the eighth win in a row for the Wide Net Cards (helping my "steamed" colleague Worldwide fulfill his prophecy that they would win eight straight)...which coincides with their 8-0 record in the ACC. 

The Cards win the annual Dig Pink match in straight sets 25-23, 25-21, 25-22 against a strong and physical Duke squad that drops to 8-10 overall and 3-5 in-conference. 

Freshman Aniah Philo bolstered her chances to receive ACC Volleyball Freshman of the Week with 11 kills and 11 digs.

Janelle Jenkins nearly duplicated Philo's feat with nine kills and nine digs and Gabbie Wiley came off the bench with a powerful serving display...getting three aces for Anne Kordes' set and spike squad. 

Louisville Volleyball stays in the KFC YUM! Center for their next match...welcoming Notre Dame to downtown Louisville for a Wednesday 7 p.m. contest.
