Leopards Mount Furious 4th Quarter Comeback
Louisville trailed by as much as 8-3 early on in the second half and still remained behind 9-5 with six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The Leopards stormed back with six straight goals to take an 11-9 lead before prevailing to victory.
Reynolds was dominant on face-offs in the fourth quarter. He also scored the game-tying goal with 2:47 left and the go-ahead goal to put Louisville ahead 10-9 with 1:47 to go. Johnson added what proved to be the game winning goal after that to put the Leopards up 11-9.
Key saves in the fourth quarter by senior goalkeeper Evan Wengerter also helped keep Hoban at bay while Louisville mounted its comeback.
Louisville Flips the Script on Hoban
The Leopards are now 1-1 against the Knights all-time with both meetings coming at Dowed Field. Hoban defeated Louisville 19-2 in the second round of the Division II, Region 6 tournament in 2019.
The Leopards completely flipped the script from three years ago on the Knights Friday Night.
