The most dazzling goal of the night came less than seven minutes later. A number of chances failed to produce a second Lady Leopards goal, however their efforts did reward them with a corner kick opportunity. Junior Paige Folk delivered a perfectly placed kick to the center of the the top of the goal box. Fellow junior Mikaiah Sells was there to head it home into the left side of the net to put Louisville in front 2-0 with 31:58 to play in the opening half.

Sells’ score kickstarted a flurry of Leopard goals as they scored three times in a span of 1:54. Allan scored via an assist from senior Gracie Bush. Then Allan provided a pass to junior Mazzy Miller who found the back of the net to expand the Louisville lead to 4-0, not even ten minutes into the contest. The pattern of players then came full circle in the 19th minute as Bush got on the scoreboard via a Miller assist.


Louisville Sets Single-Half Record for Goals

The Lady Leopards would score a team record nine goals in the first half when the dust settled. Lingenhoel and Allan scored unassisted goals. Then Schillig scored via a Lingenhoel assist to net Louisvilleā€™s record-tying eighth goal. The pair flipped roles just 42 seconds later as Lingenhoel scored via a Schillig assist to notch the Lady Leopards record-breaking ninth goal of the half.

The Lady Leopards erupted for eight goals in the first half in the pouring rain at Canton McKinley on September 19, 2011. The only other time Louisville scored eight goals in a half at home came in the second half of their 12-0 regular season finale shutout at Canton South on October 12, 2016.


Lady Leopards Break 11 Year Old Scoring Record

The Lady Leopards emptied their bench in the second half, but that did not stop them from scoring. The Comets only had 13 players dressed and Louisville held a distinct advantage in terms of fresh legs.

Lingenhoel got the scoring started out of the break with an unassisted goal and then provided an assist for Madelynn Manley’s first goal. Manley scored again less than six minutes later via an assist from sophomore Sydney Sheldon. The ball was heading toward the end line and likely would have been ruled an LHS corner kick. But Sheldon hustled to the ball and redirected it into the left side of the goal box. The goalkeeper dived down thinking the pass was a shot attempt and Manley easily scored into the open left side of the net.

In the 58th minute, junior Ava Heckman passed the ball forward to Brooke Manley just outside the penalty box. A Coventry defender deflected the ball away but right to the feet of Heckman. From 25 yards away, Heckman drove the ball into the worn out left side of the net for the Lady Leopards record-tying 13th goal of the contest.

Not long after, freshman Alivia Youngen drew a Comet penalty in the box. Sophomore Olivia Lewis buried home the penalty kick to make it 14-0 Louisville in setting a new school record for most goals scored in a single game.

The Lady Leopards tacked on two more goals in the final 6:07 of the contest to solidify the record. Madelynn Manley notched her hat trick score off a left-booted kick via a short pass from Brooke Manley. Just 2:14 later, Schillig got control of a high-bouncing deflection on the right side of the box and angled a shot into the left side of the net to put Louisville ahead 16-0.


Henderhan and Mercier Combine for Shutout

The Lady Leopard defense withstood two Coventry corner kicks late to sustain the shutout. Senior goalkeeper Amelia Henderhan and sophomore goalkeeper Audrey Mercier combined for the shutout in goal for Louisville. Henderhan was pulled late in the first half and Mercier kept the net clean the rest of the way while recording the only Leopard save in the second half.

Louisville held a 23-1 edge in shots on goal and a 7-2 advantage in corner kicks for the game.


Louisville’s Record Breaking Night

The previous high goal mark for a single game was set 11 seasons before. Louisville upended Canton McKinley 13-0 at Mason Elementary School Field on September 19, 2011 in a game in which they outshot the Bulldogs 49-1 and attempted 17 corner kicks. 

The single game record for most goals scored in a home game was 11 set twice prior to Wednesday. More recently, the Leopards defeated the Massillon Tigers 11-1 on September 19, 2020 at Louisville Leopards Stadium in a game that featured Morgan Keelan scoring an individual single game record 7 goals. Louisville also defeated the Canton South Wildcats 11-0 on September 21, 2011 in a contest that was played at the Louisville High School field.

The Lady Leopards have now reached a double digit goal total nine times, which includes achieving that mark five times at home. Below are all the games in which the Louisville Girls Soccer Team has scored 10 or more goals:

  • 16-0 Vs. Coventry on September 7, 2022
