For nearly 12 minutes the score remained locked as neither team could find the net. Fouls plagued the second half leading to a lot of time bleeding off the clock from stoppages. The drought finally ended when Wesely weaved her way through the Eagles defense and found the back of the goal.
Wesely would score again less than three minutes later, and not a minute after that Oberster tacked on to the Leopards lead with a backhand score. That 3-0 run gave Louisville a 12-7 advantage with 5:54 to go in the game. The Leopards rolled to victory from there.
Louisville Goalie Celia Keefe turned away the Avon offense all night long in recording 15 saves. Wesely finished with a team-high 4 ground balls. Haley Black, Katie Monter, Maddie Murray, and Tori Sharlow all fielded 3 ground balls each for the Leopards as well.
Louisville will look to complete a perfect regular season when they travel to play at 1-9 Poland on Tuesday.
