UofL SOCCER | Cards, Wildcats Tie in Rivalry Match

09/05/2017 11:08 PM

Tuesday night’s rivalry match between the Louisville and Kentucky men’s soccer teams lived up to the hype.

In fact, regulation and two overtime periods were not enough time to determine a winner, as #8 Louisville (3-0-1) and #19 Kentucky (3-0-1) battled to a 2-2 draw in front of nearly 3,000 fans inside Lynn Stadium.

The Cardinals got the scoring started first thanks for a Mohamed Thiaw goal off of an Adrien Cabon assist in the 14th minute of the match.

It did not take long for UK to respond, as Connor Probert found the back of the net on a free kick in the 16th minute, tying the game 1-1.

Later in the first half, Kentucky’s Mikkel Pedersen scored to give the Wildcats their first lead of the night.

But, like UK earlier, UofL responded, as Cody Cochran scored the equalizer in the 42nd minute of the match.

Neither team scored again, as the match ended in a 2-2 draw after two overtime periods.

Overall, Louisville out-shot Kentucky 9-3.
