Irish drop first Big East regular-season game since 2005

[NOTRE DAME-LOUISVILLE] Erin Yenney's goal gave Louisville a 1-0 win over No. 14 Notre Dame before a crowd of 2,501 fans at Alumni Stadium, handing the Irish their first regular-season loss in Big East play since Sept. 30, 2005, a span of 65 games.

Notre Dame, which dropped to 3-4-1 overall, doubled up Louisville in total shots by a 20-10 margin and corner kicks by a 6-3 spread.

Louisville goalkeeper Chloe Kiefer came up with five saves to post the clean sheet, and also got some help from Casey Whitfield when the defender cleared Jessica Schuveiller's shot off the line just five minutes after the Cardinals took the lead

"I'm so proud of our team," said Louisville coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes. "They were all very focused on what we needed to do and they did it passionately. This is a great win for our team and for this program."

Notre Dame, the defending national champion, had entered the game 16-0-0 in Big East openers.

“There’s not a whole lot you can say about this one,” Notre Dame head coach Randy Waldrum said. “We obviously didn’t come ready to play, we didn’t have the energy, the drive and the focus, and give Louisville credit for capitalizing on that and making us pay. To say I’m disappointed is probably a huge understatement. But despite what some might think, the season doesn’t end after eight matches. There’s still a lot we can and will accomplish this season. Right now, our focus has to be entirely on Cincinnati, not Louisville, and not any other game down the road. That’s all we’re concentrating on at this point.”
