LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Propelled by second half goals from redshirt junior Daniel Keller and sophomore Jerry Ramirez, the seventh-ranked Louisville men’s soccer team earned a 2-0 victory over Cleveland State in Wednesday night’s home-opener at Cardinal Park.
With the win, the Cardinals improved to 2-0-0 for the third time in the last five seasons while the Vikings dropped to 1-2-0 overall.
It is definitely that time of year again! Fall sports have started and there seems to always be something going on in UofL athletics. As a fan of EVERY UofL sport, I love that there are so many games and events to keep up with. It makes it much more exciting when every team is good, as is the case with the Louisville Cardinals. There are just a few events today, but here they are…
The men’s soccer team was picked to finish 2nd in the AAC this season, with UConn being picked 1st. The 10th ranked Cards finish their preseason with a match this Saturday at 7 pm at Cardinal Park as they host 19th ranked Northwestern. Admission is free. Here is the full AAC poll as well as the Preseason Award Winners.
I believe that technically the “Year of the Cardinal” has closed its chapter, and now we are moving on to possibly Year 2 of that. If of course when we say “Year”, we are referring to the Sports calender, which is what I go by. So to me, we are now entering into the 2nd year of what could be the “Decade of the Cardinal” when it’s all said and done. But I digress…
