Denver Controls Game in 12-5 Win Over Louisville
Eggeman had a career-high game to give Denver its first win in Louisville
Feb. 17, 2018
Denver was able to control the game early on and keep the ball in the offensive half of the field, winning three of the first four draws, and stymied the Cardinals offensively and defensively throughout the game.
The Pioneers outshot Louisville 25-22 and won the draw control battle 11-8, with Elizabeth Behrins recording a team-high four. Seven different Pioneers recorded a goal, and eight tallied a point in a victory in which Denver controlled the majority of the contest.
Carson Gregg had another solid performance in the net, stopping 10 of the 15 shots on goal that she faced, and the defensive pressure limited the opportunities that the Cardinals had as they were 12-20 on clear attempts. Kennedy Milburn led the defense with five ground balls in the game, a career-high for the redshirt junior.
Kendra Lanuza opened up the afternoon of scoring for the Pioneers with her first goal of the season at 28:37 on an unassisted goal.
After Louisville tied the game at one at the 26:23 mark, Julia Feiss answered with a goal (her fourth goal of the season) at 22:14 to put the visitors back up by one.
UP NEXT: Denver returns home to play San Diego State on Feb. 23 at noon.
