Lady Leopards Shutout Knights on Senior Night – Girls Soccer
Louisville 6, St. Thomas Aquinas 0
The Louisville Leopards Girls Soccer Team shutout the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Knights 6-0 Wednesday Night at Louisville Leopards Stadium. With the victory, Louisville improves to 6-4-1 on the season.
Senior Gabby Smith scored 2 goals in the first half and junior Morgan Keelan booted home 4 goals in the second half to lead the Lady Leopards. The pair have now combined for 30 of LHS’s 44 goals this season with Keelan now owning a team leading 21 and Smith also scoring 9. Both also recorded an assist and both now have 4 assists on the season.
All 6 Goals Assisted By 6 Different Leopards
All 6 of Louisville’s goals were assisted by 6 different players. Others with assists included senior Carley Andrews, freshman Matti Benson, freshman Natalie Lab, and junior Morgan Mayle. Benson has now recorded an assist in five straight matches and holds the team lead with 7. Mayle is now second on the team with 5, Lab is tied for third with 4, and for Andrews it was her first assist of the campaign.
Henderhan Ties Record for Career Shutouts
Sophomore goalkeeper Amelia Henderhan tied the Lady Leopards team record for shutouts with the 8th of her career. The record couldn’t have come much easier as the Louisville defense put the clamps down and didn’t allow St. Thomas a single shot on goal. Henderhan needs just one more shutout to surpass Kylee Symmons who also recorded 8 shutouts all in 2004.
The Lady Leopards out-shot the Knights 23-0 and held a 6-0 edge in corner kicks.
Battle of Louisville All-Time Series
With the victory, Louisville has now defeated St. Thomas Aquinas in three straight meetings dating back to 2012. The Leopards now leads the all-time Battle of Louisville series 4-2-0, which includes a 2-0 record when playing at home in the series.
