Titans Bested by Louisville in Chilly Midweek Affair

Defensively, the Cardinals limited Detroit to just three shots, one on goal, 3 for 15 on clear attempts and held the Titans without a draw control in the period.

The second half was a near mirror of the first, with Detroit managing just two goals. The Titans (1-6) scored the opening goal of the period and tallied their only other score with nine minutes remaining in the contest.

Between Detroit's pair of goals, Louisville went on a 5-0 run that included Boltja's fourth and fifth goals of the game. The junior has posted at least three goals in every game this season, and her combined 10 goals in the last two games give her 29 through seven contests.

The Cardinals then closed the game with five-straight scores, including Carissa Corbett's first and second of the season, and Kelli Gerding's first collegiate score. Oliverio, who assisted on two of the goals, picked up her third and fourth assists of the day to push her season total to 16.

For the game, Louisville outshot Detroit, 40-9.

Much of Louisville's offense was triggered by its effectiveness on the draw, as the Cardinals finished the game with a 20-3 advantage. Kaylin Morissette and Monica Negron each tallied seven draw controls.

Ashley Herbst, again, played all 60 minutes in goal and made five stops to improve her season record to 6-1. The Pittsford, N.Y., native owns a 6.73 goals-against-average mark this season.

Negron also tied with Hillary Bushway for a game-best three caused turnovers apiece.

Louisville continues its five-game road trip with a Sunday match at Drexel in Philadelphia, Pa. First draw on March17 is set for 1:00 p.m.
