Alison price and gabby vincent score in the victory
Playing their second game in under 48 hours the Louisville women's soccer team faced the Miami RedHawks of Ohio. The Cards relied on goals by Alison Price and Gabby Vincent to secure the win.
Miami seemed to have control of the game early in the first half, dominating possession and allowing the Louisville offense few shots. However, UofL's game plan turned aggressive and the offense pushed.
Allison Whitfield pushed along the baseline and found Alison Price just beyond the Miami goalkeeper for the 1-0 lead at the 29 minute mark. Shortly after Coach Ferguson-Dayes pulled many of the starters for an early break before halftime.
Coming into the second half with a 1-0 lead, Louisville was ready to pounce again. The offense had many good looks, but were a mere few feet away from the goal on multiple occasions. They kept the pressure on, nonetheless.
UofL caught a break at the 74 minute mark when a foul was called on Miami inside the box. Junior Gabrielle "Gabby" Vincent lined up for the penalty kick and faced goalkeeper Pat Koutoulas. Koutoulas dived one direction as Vincent's kicked soared in the other and put the Cards up 2-0.
The win was number 150 at Louisville for Karen Ferguson-Dayes.
Louisville improves to 2-0 on the season. They travel to Indiana on Thursday before returning home next Sunday to face Marquette.
