Less than 48 hours after falling to Kentucky at home, the Louisville women's soccer team took the pitch at Lynn Stadium once more. Their foe for the night was the Harvard Crimson.
Harvard is not a team to underestimate. They are known for their speed and agility, quickly outmaneuvering opponents on the way to the goal. This is a team that will come at you with all they've got.
The Cards responded well. They won 3-1, all goals scored in the first half. Freshman Brooklynn Rivers put Louisville on top early on with a goal three minutes into the game, with freshman Sarah Feola earning credit with the assist. Roughly 10 minutes later Rivers did it again, driving a ball into the upper right corner of the net off an assist by sophomore Jill Vetere.
The Crimson had a response when they scored a breakaway goal in the 32nd minute to bring the score within 2-1. However, just before halftime Jill Vetere got her second assist of the game when she passed the ball to freshman Arianna Ferraro, who sent her shot right through the goalkeeper's legs for a 3-1 halftime lead, and final score.
Louisville now sits on a 4-1-1 record going into a five day break. They will return to action on Friday, September 9, at 7:30 p.m., at Lynn Stadium, when they take on Ball State.
