Louisville escapes Denver with win by penalty kicks to advance

MSOC

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Denver's senior Cole Chapleski recorded four shots with two on goal, but it wasn’t enough to lift DU past Louisville as Louisville won in penalty kicks 3-2 on Thursday night in the first round.

The Pioneers (13-3-4) played 110 scoreless minutes against the Cardinals (11-4-4) prior to penalty kicks, continuing DU’s Division I school record of 15-consecutive unbeaten matches.

Chapleski opened the tiebreaking shootout with a goal past Cardinal goalkeeper Joachim Ball. Louisville would respond with a goal from Nolan Moore getting past junior Oliver Brown.

Redshirt freshman Reagan Dunk, senior Zach Bolden and junior Kosta Kordistos would miss the next three penalty kicks for Denver.

Louisville’s Zack Foxhoven scored on the Cardinal’s fourth PK attempt after Derek McCaffrey missed his shot.

Needing to score to continue the penalty kick shootout, senior Theodor Remman found the back of the net in DU’s final PK attempt.

In the final shot of the tiebreaker, U of L’s Jimmy Ockford squeezed a ball past Brown to allow Louisville to advance to the NCAA second round against No. 11 seed Michigan State.

Louisville will play Michigan State at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
