The Louisville Lady Leopards blanked the visiting Canton South Wildcats 6-0 Wednesday evening at Louisville Leopards Stadium. With the win, Louisville finishes their best ever regular season in team history at 14-1-1 and also completes their first ever perfect sweep of the NBC at 7-0.

The Lady Leopards clawed the Lady Wildcats with five goals in the opening half. Sarah Jaroszyk’s cross Beatty's Sports Leopard Skin Grey Hoodiepass allowed Rachel Baughman to score the opening goal. Jaroszyk then got on the board herself via an assist from Jessica Hamsher just 92 seconds later. Lizz Stefanik then made it 3-0 less then five minutes later by scoring her sixth goal of the season. Baughman intercepted a Canton South goal kick before passing the ball over to Stefanik.

Devin Kring would add two goals in the final 13:06 of the first half to put Louisville up 5-0. She dribbled half the field before scoring the first goal and then scored on a give-and-go from Halie Barton. Kring has now scored 8 goals this season.

The lone goal in the second half was setup by some tricky footwork and passing by Kelly Miller. Miller’s pass deflected off Barton before Kayla Shankel got a touch on it. Shankel drove the ball into the net for the first goal of the season.

With the victory, the Lady Leopards are now 7-0 all-time against the Lady Wildcats which includes a 4-0 record at home. Louisville has outscored Canton South in the series 44-3 and is undefeated in their last 15 conference games. The Lady Leps have now also recorded four straight shutouts a feat not matched by any prior Louisville squad.
