South faces tough task Friday

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

Win or lose Friday against Madison Southern, the South Laurel Cardinals know this is the last game of the season for them.

Larry Welch’s squad is riding a seven-game losing streak and hasn’t won a game since falling to North Laurel on Aug. 25.

Welch said his team is struggling, but a win can go a long way confidence-wise for next season.

“We always want to come out and win the game, no matter who we’re playing against,” Welch said. “We’d like to close out the season with a win, but they are a really good football team with big kids.

“They have a really good back in the Harris kid who has some big colleges looking at him and he’s just a sophomore,” he added. “We have to try and come up with a way to slow him down or we’ll be in trouble.”

Madison Southern is coming off a 26-10 win over North Laurel last week. Harris had a big night against the Jaguars, rushing for 193 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries. He’s averaging 229 yards per game on the season on 122 carries while rushing for 32 touchdowns on the season.

The Eagles can force a tie in the district with a win and a Pulaski County loss to Southwestern this week, but Welch said his team would love to play the roll of spoiler.

“You always come out and play for yourself first and foremost,” Welch said. “But if you can throw a wrinkle in someone else's plans, you always want to try to do that.

“What it comes down to is the fact you want to come out and play your best football and I don’t think we’ve done that lately,” he added. “We’ve had some injuries to deal with, so we have to try and overcome that.”
