These guys were obviously enjoying the great surge in soccer’s popularity in Louisville. Among the estimated 5,500 fans attending the University of Louisville-Ohio State match Sunday were Tom Jurich, vice president of athletics, and Jim Ramsey, UofL president. The win improved Louisville’s record to 18-0-2 for the season. The Cards next face UCLA at home Saturday in the quarter finals of the NCAA soccer tournament at Cardinal Park. (UofL Card Game photo.)
