Central would again manage just a single field goal in the final period against the stout LHS defense. Louisville outscored them 10-6 in the fourth to finish the game.

My Fit Life Personal Trainer AdWith the victory, Louisville has now defeated Central in 4 of their past 5 meetings. The Lady Leopards still trail the all-time series 21-22 which includes a 9-10 record in games played at CCHS. The 45-point victory is the most lopsided win in the series by either team after the two squads split overtime wins in their past two matchups in 2017 and 2018.
