Andrew Guerra was a force for Louisville as they played two top-10 opponents but came away with a win and a draw, thanks to the Texas native scoring twice each game. Firstly, against No. 9 Kentucky, Guerra scored two in a 4-2 win as he put together a dominant showing of heading and clever movements in the 18. Then, against No. 3 Syracuse, Guerra showcased his finishing and clutch goal-scoring instincts as his second on the night tied the game with 90 seconds to go. Guerra is now on a four-game scoring streak as arguably the best striker in college soccer.
