The Cardinals fell 2-1 when they returned home to face the Clemson Tigers last night at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.  Both teams were trying to avoid falling four games in a row.  Despite out-shooting the Tigers in both halves, the Cards were not able to take advantage and win the match.  Louisville moves to 4-5-2 and Clemson moves to 6-4-2 on the season. 

First half  


Cardinals score first when Patricia Ward found the back of the net 1:17 into the match. It was Ward's first goal with the Cardinals this season and also the quickest goal this season for Louisville. The Tigers were able to even it up when junior defender Megan Bornkamp headed one in at the 7:48 mark.   It was also  Bornkamp’s first goal of the season. Maliah Morris put the Tigers ahead for good 2-1 just before halftime at the 35 minute mark.  

The Cards had a 9-7 shot advantage over Clemson in the first half.   Each team had four shots on goal.

Second half 

The Cardinals had a couple of chances to tie the game, most notably in the 56th minute from Addie Chester.  She tied for the team lead with four shots along with Maisie Whitsett.

  1. ...hard to believe that the #2 volleyball squad in DI isn't going to be shown anywhere Friday... doesn't boston have ACCNX?

      BC absolutely has the ability to put things on ACCNX, and they put vball on there before. I have no idea what the problem is here.
