Men’s soccer defeats NC State in the regular season finale Wednesday, Oct 27 2021 

By Daniel Rankin —

This past weekend, Louisville men’s soccer played at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynn Stadium for their final time in the regular season. The UofL Men’s Soccer Team took down the NC State Wolf Pack with a final score of 2-1.

The Cardinal’s defense was strong and didn’t allow a shot until the 29th minute, which senior goalkeeper Detre Bell saved.

In the 37th minute, the Cards finally got on the board after senior forward Pedro Fonseca converted on a perfect opportunity. The 1-0 score remained going into halftime.

After the break, NC State scored a 68th-minute equalizer, putting the game at a 1-1 draw. However, the tied game didn’t last long. After excellent ball movement and fearless drives by Fonseca and midfielder Eric Danquah, freshman striker Aboubacar Camara scored his ACC leading 13th goal of the year.

The goal came just four short minutes after the equalizer, bringing the score to 2-1.

NC State started to fall behind, as the Cards led with a 14-5 shot advantage and dominated possession. This led to Louisville’s win for the night.

The win added a crucial 3 points; allowing the Cards to stay on top of the ACC standings at 15 points, just barely ahead of Clemson’s 12 points.

Clemson and Louisville will play each other to finish the regular season and determine the champion of the Atlantic Division on Friday, October 29th.
After that, the Cards will anticipate coming home for future post-season matches at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynn Stadium.

Women’s Soccer Shuts Down Saint Louis Sunday, Sep 5 2021 

By: Daniel Rankin–

The Louisville Women’s Soccer team traveled to Saint Louis University Sept. 2 for their first away game of the season. With a final score of 1-0, Louisville keeps their undefeated season record of 4-0.

At the start of the game, the Cards stayed on the Billiken goalkeeper’s toes. By doing this, they quickly sent both teams into the locker rooms scoreless after the first half.

In the second half, the pressure continued with a penalty shot saved by Saint Louis in the 54th minute. Just minutes later, the Cardinals made a goal in the 60th minute by sophomore midfielder Morgan Bentley after a great pass by freshman midfielder Nina Nicosia.

Saint Louis tried to keep up in the closing minutes of the game, but it was too late. Louisville graduate goalkeeper Gabby Kouzelos finished the game with three saves, and led her team to victory.

“I’m very proud of our team as we keep learning and growing,” said Louisville Head Coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes. She also added that she was very pleased by how her team performed that night.

Louisville returns home to face Western Kentucky University on Sunday, September 5. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 pm at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynn Stadium, where admission and parking are free for the entire 2021 season.
