The No. 3 Louisville women’s field hockey team took a loss to Michigan University on Friday, May 7 at the NCAA semifinals. They played at the Karen Shelton Stadium in North Carolina and lost with a final score of 1-2.
At the beginning of the game, Louisville took the lead with a score of 1-0. They had a solid defense and offense, which led Cardinal fans to believe that they would take the win that night.
Unfortunately, Michigan caught up during the last two quarters of the game. They were able to make two scores which put them at a 2-1 advantage. Now, Michigan will advance to the national championship.
Nonetheless, the Cardinal’s had a great season with the win of the ACC season title, as well as the top seed during the conference tournament. Overall, a record-breaking season for the Louisville field-hockey team.
