Ferguson-Dayes Discusses Sunday's Loss
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Playing in its regular season home finale for 2010, the Louisville women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision to BIG EAST Conference foe Georgetown on a warm Sunday afternoon at Cardinal Park.
With the loss, the Cardinals fell to 9-5-0 overall and 3-4-0 in league games, while the Hoyas improved to 11-4-0 overall and 5-2-0 in BIG EAST action with the win.
"We played a very, very good team today. Georgetown is a quality opponent, so we knew going in that it was going to be difficult," said Cardinals' head coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes. "For us, it was two things specifically today. First, our marking in the box was really, really bad. All three of their goals were from 10 yards and in and that's unacceptable. Secondly, we were looking to just play Christine offensively. We must have more ideas than just playing to Christine and using her physical presence."
The Hoyas opened the scoring in the 35th minute of action as Alexa St. Martin headed in a cross from teammate Samantha Baker from three yards out for a 1-0 lead. The goal was the third of the season for St. Martin, while the assist was the third of the season for Baker.
After holding a one goal advantage into the halftime break, GU added to its lead in the 53rd minute as Ingrid Wells scored from 10 yards away into the upper right corner of the net for her seventh goal of the season and a 2-0 advantage.
The Hoyas made it 3-0 in the 60th minute as Wells sent in a cross from the left side to Camille Trujillo, who headed it into the net from nine yards out for her team-leading ninth goal of the season. The assist for Wells was her team-leading 10th of the year.
The Cardinals broke through for their only goal of the day in the 62nd minute as redshirt freshman Angelika Uremovich (Oakville, Ont./St. Ignatius of Loyola) found the upper left corner of the net from 20 yards way for her fifth goal of the season and the final 3-1 margin.
Overall, Georgetown finished with an 18-9 advantage in shots, including and 11-5 margin in shots-on-goal, while also holding a 2-1 edge in corner kicks. In goal, sophomore Taylor Vancil (South Elgin, Ill./St. Charles North HS) finished with eight saves for the Cardinals, while Jackie DesJardin had three stops for the Hoyas.
Prior to Sunday's game, the Louisville women's soccer program honored seniors Kate Cunningham, Erin Davis, Caley Egan, Katie Kuric, Shannon Leamy, Emily Prokopik, Caitlin Rehder and Meredith Tolley during its annual Senior Day ceremony.
Up next, Louisville will take to the road for games at USF (Friday, Oct. 15) and at Marquette (Sunday, Oct. 17) next weekend.
