South Laurel picks up fourth victory in a row

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

MIDDLESBORO — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals continued to flex their muscles by defeating the Middlesboro Lady Yellow Jackets Thursday, 16-0.

The Lady Cardinals scored early and often against Middlesboro and have now recorded two straight wins that saw the game end before halftime.

“We had a good week,” South Laurel coach Todd White said. “We only played two halves, but we got two wins and that is good for our girls.

“We're going to be tested next week, though,” he added. “Next week we will face Pulaski County and East Jessamine. Those are two very good teams.”

White said there were a lot of positives that came out of the win.

“I’m happy we got out of there without any injuries,” he said. “Injuries are always a concern when you play and I was able to play everyone on the team. I believe almost everyone on the team scored for us.

“Middlesboro never threatened and we possessed the ball for almost the entire game,” he added. “It was a good win.”

The Lady Cardinals are winners of four straight now and have outscored their opponents 37-1 during the process.
