Women’s soccer defeats Cincinnati in double overtime
By Sammie Hill–
Sophomore forward Casey Whitfield scored in the 106th minute in order to secure a 2-1 double overtime victory against the University of Cincinnati on Friday, Oct. 19.
“Rivalry games always bring out the best in teams and tonight was no different,” said head coach Karen Ferguson-Davis. “You have to credit Cincinnati for the way they competed, especially their goalkeeper (Kristina) Utley, who played well. Our team continued to fight and persevere throughout the game and it paid off in the end.”
Junior forward Charlyn Corral scored the first goal for the Cardinals in the 70th minute of the second half. This goal tied the game 1-1 with the Bearcats, who had previously had a 1-0 lead with a goal from Liz Miller in the 16th minute.
Despite producing a total of 37 shots throughout the game, the Cardinals remained tied with the Bearcats until the end of regulation time. The teams then proceeded into overtime, where neither team scored. With five minutes remaining in double overtime, Whitfield executed a goal that captured the lead for the Cards and solidified their 2-1 victory.
The University of Louisville women’s soccer team will return to action on Sunday, Oct. 28 in Tampa, Florida.
