FRIDAYS WITH DARYL
CARDS WSOC AND SYCAMORES BATTLE TO SCORELESS TIE IN LYNN
Hello readers and hello again weekend!
It's finally game time! The 2023 season kicked off for women's sports with a contest vs. Indiana State at Lynn Stadium last night.
Shoutout to all the 90's babies who might understand the reference below..
"We've got a gaaaaaameee.. :D '
That's from the episode of Boy meets World where Cory and Eric feel bad for bailing on their dad's Father/Son softball game so they convince him to give them a second chance and they all say together... "We've got a gaaaaaaaameee"
Indiana St 0 vs UofL 0
The Cardinals were back on the soccer pitch Thursday evening as the dark skies turned into a gorgeous sunset at Lynn Stadium.
It was probably an exhausting night for the Indiana State defense against the Cardinals, as it seemed like the majority of the night was spent at the Sycamores end of the pitch. UofL spent 90 minutes trying to find the back of the net but they unfortunately could not connect for one.
UofL totaled 23 shot attempts in the match with 9 shots in the first half and 14 in the second half while the Sycamores recorded none in the entire match. Ind. State goalkeeper Maddie Alexander had 9 saves to start off her 2023 season while the Cardinals' Savina Zamborini led "the red" in shot attempts with five, four of them on goal.
Louisville goalkeeper Erynn Floyd might've gotten a little bored in this one. Lucy Roberts, Lizzie Sexton and Hayley Howard played all 90 minutes for the Cards.
The Sycamores probably feel pretty good about themselves leaving Louisville, but I bet the Cards were a little bummed about not being able to score off of so many chances, especially because the chances looked pretty promising towards the end of the match. To me it appeared they just need to speed the game up some and sharpen the edges and hopefully find themselves in the win column sooner rather than later.
