CARDS MAKE BOTH ACC WSOC AND FH TOURNAMENTS
WOMEN'S SOCCER A #6 SEED
The University of Louisville Field Hockey and Women's Soccer squads have made their respective, post-season ACC Tournaments. Sunday's action in Women's Soccer determined that the Louisville Women's Soccer squad, despite being idle, found that their 12 points would ultimately put them into a three-way tie for sixth place...with Notre Dame and Virginia Tech.
In cases like this, the seeding determination factor is...first...a goal differential tie-breaker. That advanced VT and the Cards and left Notre Dame as the #8 seed. Then, the determination went to the results of the head-to-head matchup between the remaining two squads, which the Cards won when they defeated the Hokies 1-0 on October 18th.
The Cards avoided facing either FSU or UNC in opening round action and they'll go against #3 seed Virginia at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 10th at the Wake Med Soccer Complex in Cary, NC.
The top seed is Florida State. The Seminoles won the tie-breaker for top seed with North Carolina by taking the goal differential in conference games 21-16. After UNC in second, #3 seed went to Virginia. who had 16 points in conference play. Clemson is the #4 seed (15 points). Duke gets the #5 seed.
