The Louisville field hockey team was in action this past weekend as they hosted a pair of games against Davidson and Ball State. The Cards started the weekend with a Saturday afternoon game against Davidson. Mallory Mason (7) and Erin Schneidtmiller (21) scored in the first half to give the Cards a 2-1 advantage at half. Becca Maddock (19) added to the Cards lead in the second half. However, Davidson scored a late goal trimming the Cards lead to 3-2. After a lengthy rain delay, the Cards closed out Davidson to win by a final score of 3-2 and improve their record to 2-1 on the season.
