Marlington 8, Louisville 1
The Dukes pounded the Leopards for five first half goals on their way to an 8-1 victory. Three Marlington goals to open the second half in a span of less than eight minutes iced the game for the Dukes. In fact, the Dukes wanted to score so badly that the only Louisville goal of the night came when a Marlington player kicked it off of another Duke and into their own net.
