Syracuse, N.Y.- The Louisville field hockey team visited the Syracuse Orange, who are No. 4 in the nation. The Cards scored first in the first half when Minout Mink drove down the baseline and knocked one in. In the second half the Orange tied things up off of a backhand. Headed into overtime the pressure was on. Goalkeeper Ayeisha McFerran was called for a controversial foul in the box that led to a penalty stroke for Syracuse Lies Lagerweij lined up for the shot and slipped it past McFerran for the 2-1 overtime victory.
On Sunday, the Cards return home to host No. 18 Iowa. Mink scored in the seventh minute for her 11th of the season. Two minutes later Marigrace Ragsdale received a pass from Stephanie Byrne to score her second goal of the season. McFerran recorded another shutout on the season with three saves. A green card was issued to Iowa's Taylor Omweg.
No. 7 Louisville's record now sits at 10-2 overall, but only 1-2 in ACC. The Cards have four more home games in a row coming up, starting with Friday at 6:00 p.m., when No. 15 Boston College comes to visit.
