This is just the fourth time that the Lady Leopards have shutout their opponent in the postseason. Their last two tournament shutouts came against the GlenOak Golden Eagles at home. In 2013, Louisville defeated GlenOak 1-0 on a golden goal in overtime and in 2012 the Lady Leopards defeated the Golden Eagles 3-0 in their previous most lopsided shutout in team history. Louisville also blanked Canton McKinley 1-0 in the opening round of the 2005 tournament.
The Lady Leopards have now won their last three tournament games played at Louisville Leopards Stadium dating back to 2016. Louisville is now 10-18 in tournament play all-time, which includes a 6-2 record when playing at home. LHS also finishes the season with a winning 4-3-1 record when playing within the confines of Louisville Leopards Stadium.
