[LOUISVILLE-CENTRAL ARKANSAS] Central Arkansas, which has never had a winning record as a Division I program, almost pulled off a monumental upset, taking 1-0 and 2-1 leads at Louisville, before falling to the No. 2 Cardinals, 3-2, on Sunday afternoon in Cardinal Park.

In the 11th minute, the Bears' Mickey Segura beat Louisville keeper Andre Boudreaux from 25 yards out, but the Cardinals equalized a minute later on Chase Rodgers' header.

Ch ris Deaville restored UCA's lead in the 43rd minute, setting up a tense second half during which Louisville had almost all the possession, outshooting the Bears, 21-4.

The game turned in the 64th minute when the Bears' Stephen Williams was issued his second yellow card of the match, forcing the visitors to play a man down the rest of the match.

Louisville equalized nine minutes later when Ryan Smith won the ball and crossed it into the penalty box, where Buck Tufty scored on a header for the tying goal.

The Cardinals' pressure continued, and in the 90th minute Tufty's cross found Vitalis just inside the box for the game-winner.

Central Arkansas plays in the Missouri Valley because the Southland Conference doesn't offer men's soccer. It hasn't had a winning season since its move from Division II to Division I in 2006.
