The Louisville Cardinals put up two goals in the first half then went on to keep the Eagles from gaining too much momentum for a comeback. Louisville’s first goal came from Emina Ekic who took one touch to send it over Allie Augur who was charging up to the top of the box. Twenty minutes later, Ekic got the assist for the Cardinal’s second goal. Ekic passed to Delaney Snyder who carried it into the box and got a kick shot off just in time to send it into the far corner.
Despite the deficit, Augur came up big with some major saves, including one five minutes into the second half where she had to really extend herself to save a close-range shot. Throughout the second, both teams match each other’s shots, with six apiece. Then, in the last minute, Boston College is awarded a penalty kick, and for the second time in two games, Gaby Carreiro sends it past a diving keeper to get the point. The Eagles then get a last minute corner kick, but the Cardinals are able to fend them off, keeping the score 1-2, Louisville.
Allie Augur had two saves today, and Carreiro’s penalty kick goal marked the fourth of her career. The Eagles are away for the next two games, first in Raleigh this Saturday, Oct. 5 to play NC State at 7pm, then in Pittsburg the following Thursday, Oct. 10, playing Pitt at 7pm.
