The only time the Lady Leopards gave up less points on the road came on December 6, 1979 when they downed the Marlington Dukes 49-12. Louisville also gave up just 13 points in a 39-13 tournament win over the Massillon Tigers on February 22, 1983 at the neutral location of Jackson High School.  Overall this is the best defensive effort by the Lady Leopards since their all-time low of points allowed in a 63-11 home win over the Alliance Aviators on February 4, 2012. 

With the victory, Louisville has now won 18 straight over the Aviators and the last 18 games in the series played at Alliance. The Lady Leopards now lead the all-time series 41-8 which includes a 21-3 mark at AHS.
