Louisville-Kentucky: Highlights

"It's great to get wins but more importantly, I thought we played well tonight. There were a lot of things, going into the game, that we wanted to do and I thought we executed them very well," Louisville head coach Ken Lolla said. "I was pleased with the effort and how we handled the game. I think tonight was our best performance, for 90 minutes."

Louisville took the lead in the 26th minute when Schmidt notched his third goal of the season  on a shot from 25 yards that hit the post before being deflected in. Just two minutes later, the Cards extended their lead as Schmidt assisted Daniel Johnson’s first goal of the season. They finished with a 17-2 edge in shots.

“In the end it was hopefully a humbling, learning experience to play a good team like Louisville," UK head coach Johan Cedergren said. "They did play really well, I thought. Now for us we just have to get ready for our next opponent. We are a good team, we just have to play a little tougher and be a little sharper.” <
