Kennedy ties school record with 47-yard FG

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times-Tribune

After a disappointing loss to Wayne County last week, the North Laurel Jaguars had no problem bouncing back, defeating the McCreary Central Raiders 45-8 on Friday.

The Jaguars raced to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, playing their junior varsity for much of the remainder of the game.

“We won and that’s good. Our kids played hard, but we could have played better,” said North Laurel Coach Chris Larkey. “We have to get better. I told the guys, as a coach, you’re always going to find something that you need to work on. But we got some momentum going and feel better after our loss last week.”

The Jaguars were led by a plethora of running backs, with sophomore Jake McFadden leading the way with 58 yards on two carries, including a 50-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Senior Lawrence Goss added 45 yards on 11 carries.

After holding the Raiders on the first four downs of the game, North Laurel scored on just three plays, capped off by a 15-yard touchdown run by junior quarterback Michael Nelson. The Jaguars added two more touchdowns in the quarter — an eight-yard run by sophomore running back Gabe Blair and an eight-yard run by McFadden.

North Laurel didn’t let up in the second quarter, adding 24 points in the period. Freshman running back Jake McWhorter scored on a two-yard run, followed by McFadden’s 50-yard scamper on the next drive.

Jaguars’ kicker Kennedy Keaton also got in the highlight reel in the second quarter, kicking a 47-yard field goal. The kick tied a school record and put North Laurel ahead 38-0 with just over a minute left in the first half. On the ensuing drive, North Laurel’s Jansen Hacker scored on a 35-yard pick-six, to round out the scoring and give the Jaguars a 45-0 lead heading into the half.

“Keaton has a good leg, tied the school record tonight. He kicked a 55-yarder yesterday in pregame, and that’s something we work on. He’s playing for the high school soccer team and playing for us, so he deserves that,” said Larkey.
