LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The University of Louisville field hockey team had to wait about an hour longer before playing their first NCAA Final Four game because of thunderstorms in the Chapel area Hill Friday afternoon, and the wait was not once the skies were clear.

Louisville fought 1-1 in settlement, forcing overtime on an Emilia Kaczmarczyk goal from a penalty corner with just over a minute to go. They persevered through the first 10-minute overtime period and then a second.

In the shooting, Louisville appeared to be in trouble. Michigan climbed 3-1 on the penalty shootout and Wolverines goaltender Anna Spieker, who had allowed just two goals in the last 11 games, looked rock solid. Then Louisville goaltender Sam Minrath closed the door, and two back-to-back Louisville scores tied the score at 3-3.

But a failure from Louisville’s Meghan Schneider on the Cardinals’ next attempt, and a conversion from Michigan’s Katie Peterson, sneaking a shot just around Minrath’s left foot for the game-winner, gave the Wolverines the 2-1 victory. (4-3 in shootout). . Michigan, the tournament’s second seed, will face North Carolina on Sunday in the National Championship game at Chapel Hill.

Louisville, the third seed in the overall standings, finishes as the only team to beat North Carolina in the past three seasons, but just before another crack at the Tar Heels.

“Making a Final Four is something our players have always dreamed of and have been working on for many, many years now,” said Louisville coach Justine Sowry. “So I’m really proud to get to this point. We came up against a formidable formation from Michigan. We knew it was going to be difficult. And then praise them. They are well trained. They are excellent from top to bottom. But I’m incredibly proud of our student-athletes and what they’ve been through one season. It’s been a long season. Two seasons (fall and spring). We have stayed together as a unit, as a team, as a coaching staff, and I’m really very proud. We are very disappointed. It’s heartbreaking to lose a game like this. But we have achieved a lot.

The Cardinals played with initiative throughout, despite being 1-0 behind from an Anouk Veen corner penalty of just 4:34 in the third quarter. Michigan, which failed to attempt a shot in the first half, only had two shots in regulation. Louisville had seven, including six penalty corners in the fourth quarter, with Kaczmarczyk converting in the last.

Louisville and Michigan then played evenly for two 10-minute overtime periods, before the shootout drama.

“My hat has left for Louisville. What a great, well-trained team. They gave us everything we could manage and we were lucky enough to pass. Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz said. “It’s not an easy thing to get marked at the last minute and then go into overtime and not deflate. I was really proud of my team for that.

The late fireworks display came after a first half in which neither team was able to land a shot, and both entered the game averaging 13 shots per game.

Louisville frustrated Michigan with its pressure on the top, but couldn’t generate a good chance itself.

Still, it was a demon exorcising season for Louisville, as they have been doing lately. They won their first game of the NCAA tournament a year ago. Two years ago, they won their first ACC tournament game. In the fall, they got their big win – and national attention – for beating North Carolina. And to reach the Final Four, they won a decisive victory over former Big East rival, Connecticut.

“Our program has been built at this time for years and years and I think it will continue to grow,” said Schneider. “Reaching the Final Four for the first time was something incredible for us, with all the things that we struggled with, with what everyone in the world struggled with.

And now, Sowry said, his players know firsthand what it will take to get back.

“We now have that confidence in each other and in what we’re trying to accomplish,” she said. “We have confidence in our preparation and in what we do every day … We have a taste of it now, and there is absolute belief among our women and our coaching staff and we hope we can use it. like a catapult into the next season and other seasons. “

The Cardinals end the season at 14-6, including a 5-2 record in the fall.

LMPD investigator: no officer should have fired in Taylor raid https://ken-tucky.com/lmpd-investigator-no-officer-should-have-fired-in-taylor-raid/ https://ken-tucky.com/lmpd-investigator-no-officer-should-have-fired-in-taylor-raid/#respond Fri, 07 May 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://ken-tucky.com/lmpd-investigator-no-officer-should-have-fired-in-taylor-raid/ In one of the files obtained by WHAS11, Sergeant Andrew Meyer concluded that not a single officer at Taylor’s home should have fired his gun.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A recently released report by the Public Standards Unit (PSU) of the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) said that no officer should have fired their guns during the raid that resulted in the death of Breonna Taylor.

After the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled that investigative records are no longer exempt from the Open Records Act once a public agency takes final action on employee complaints, the Louisville metropolitan government changed its process for releasing investigative files in employee misconduct, such as the PSU’s investigation into the set of Breonna Taylor.

In one of the files obtained by WHAS11, Sergeant Andrew Meyer concluded that not a single officer carrying out the raid at Taylor’s home should have fired his gun during the execution of the raid in March 2020.

Meyer said lethal force should have been used only against the person who posed a lethal threat, but “the wrong person was shot.”

Although Meyer and his lieutenant both recommended that Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly be found in violation of the LMPD’s use of force policy, he was not. Instead, Detectives Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison were tried in violation of departmental policies.

A memo from former acting LMPD chief Yvette Gentry said the findings were not confirmed and she did not recommend Mattingly any disciplinary action.

Gentry said Mattingly identified Kenneth Walker as having a gun in his hand, posing “an immediate threat of death or serious injury to an officer.”

“Sergeant Mattingly’s actions must therefore be viewed through the lens of what he reasonably believed at the time he discharged his gun at an identified threat, at the end of a dimly lit hall, after being himself shot, “the memo reads.

Mattingly recently told the ministry he would be retiring effective June 1. WHAS11 contacted his lawyer who declined to comment.

Following the release of the PSU report, former LMPD interim leader Yvette Gentry issued a statement:

“While limited in what I can say due to upcoming hearings, I struggle when I let others speak for me, so I’m going to say this about the death of Breonna Taylor.

I have read a lot of reports, seen pictures. I cried, I kicked, but most of all I made a commitment to do what I knew was right and lasting and not symbolic and not to act without looking at everything because due process is essential.

I still believe in my soul that Breonna Taylor should be alive. In law enforcement and in life we ​​all trust the person we are going to help and when it starts badly it never gets better. The lack of communication at the start of the case made matters worse and her family and this town suffered because she was being treated as if she would disappear on her own.

I fired people who some thought should have been suspended, berated people some of whom should have been exonerated, and canceled what was not appropriate for the situation.

I don’t mind being interviewed about the territory. Know that there are things that I know you may not be fully aware of.

At the end of the day, the only thing I can say is that my most important job is to be a mother. It was hard to come to terms with the fact that nothing was ever going to be good enough because the pain was too deep when someone full of life died.

The role of a professional standards investigation is not to decide what criminality has been assigned to the FBI and the attorney general. My job was to look at the politics and the actions against the actions and what people did that night and to hold people accountable for their actions.

There was no complete consensus on what to support and what punishments were appropriate, so I listened to the recommendations, decided not to throw the can out on the road, and did the call because I didn’t know who was coming behind me. I did what I knew was right, appropriate, and healthy.

I operated with integrity and my decisions will make more sense once the FBI is over and the hearings are over.

The truth before reconciliation “

WHAS11 continues to review newly released investigation files and will update this story with more information.

Louisville diner draws handgun as armed BLM protesters storm restaurant https://ken-tucky.com/louisville-diner-draws-handgun-as-armed-blm-protesters-storm-restaurant/ https://ken-tucky.com/louisville-diner-draws-handgun-as-armed-blm-protesters-storm-restaurant/#respond Tue, 04 May 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://ken-tucky.com/louisville-diner-draws-handgun-as-armed-blm-protesters-storm-restaurant/

Footage showed a Louisville restaurant customer pointing a handgun at armed Black Lives Matter protesters invading the outdoor patio during protests in honor of Breonna Taylor on Kentucky Derby Day.

Louisville subway police responded to La Chasse, an upscale European restaurant in the 1300 block of Bardstown Road on Saturday night, as protesters marched north down the street. A restaurant employee told dispatchers “Several armed protesters entered the restaurant property, which included an outdoor dining area,” police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told Fox News.

A Louisville Courier-Journal reporter tweeted several photos and videos of the incident. A man was seen pointing his pistol at several protesters during an altercation. Several protesters also appeared to be carrying guns. A video shared by the newspaper showed a protester asking others to move away from the block, and tensions at the restaurant appeared to be easing.

“During the meeting, the bosses and the protesters brandished guns,” Smiley said in an email to Fox News. “This incident occurred after arrests of southbound protesters in the 1500 block area of ​​Bardstown Road. The arrests of this group were made after protesters repeatedly blocked the roadway despite the multiple verbal requests from officers to use the sidewalk. “


Protesters marched past Churchill Downs ahead of the 147th Kentucky Derby in Louisville on Saturday.

At least five arrests linked to the protests were made on Saturday.

Records shared with Fox News said those arrested ignored several announcements to disperse from the pavement and stay on the sidewalk. Police said activity on the streets alarmed several businesses.

A woman gave officers a short foot chase into the block after fleeing from officers who tried to detain her. A man has been charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and gratuitous first degree endangerment of an officer. He was arrested after a police officer allegedly spotted open alcohol containers and a loaded handgun in the front seat of his vehicle.


Saturday’s incident came weeks after United States Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the Justice Department would conduct an investigation into the Louisville-Jefferson County Metropolitan Government and the Louisville Police Department over a year after Breonna Taylor was fatally shot by a city police officer. conducting a search warrant in his apartment.

The investigation is taking place as Louisville has seen a wave of violent crime. According to police statistics, murders, rapes and thefts increased by more than 81% from the five-year averages in January and February. This follows a 2020 where police retirements and resignations peaked five years after Taylor’s death. About 15% of the police left during this period.
