In the final non-conference game of the season, Morehead State Soccer fell on the road to the University of Louisville 1-0 at Lynn Stadium.

Louisville outshot MSU 15-4, but defensively the Eagles matched the Cardinals' physical play by keeping them off-balanced throughout the evening.

"We defended well, we were disciplined, we were organized, and our back four were outstanding tonight," said Head Coach Warren Lipka. "We were just a couple of touches away from getting quality chances, but we played well against a quality opponent."

Muddy Bottom Blues

Program #49 (September 25 at 8:00PM)

Songwriter Chris Isaak loves the reverb-laden rockabilly and country of Sun Studios. In particular, he transfers the sweeping melancholy of Roy Orbison's classic Monument singles to the more stripped-down, rootsy sound of Sun, resulting in a stylized take on '50s and '60s rock & roll that made him into a star in the early '90s, propelled to a great degree by the hit single "Wicked Game."

Adults interested in returning to college and completing a bachelor’s degree are getting an extra boost through Project Graduate, a statewide program designed to recruit and graduate former students with 80 or more credit hours.
