North Laurel advances to state title game

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

WINCHESTER — Shane Brewer’s North Laurel 11 & 12-year-old All-Star team moved one step closer to its second state championship by upending host Winchester Wednesday in semifinal action, 17-5.

North Laurel didn’t waste any time taking control of the game and cruised to the easy 12-run win. Brewer’s squad, who is the No. 1 seed, will play the winner of Wednesday night’s contest between Russell-Flatwoods and Valley Sports today at 6 p.m.

“We jumped on them early and to be honest, we should have put them away in the fourth inning,” Brewer said. “We had big innings in the second and third innings, but really could have wrapped it up in the fourth inning.

“I was really impressed with the way we hit the ball with two outs,” he added. “We did a good job of putting the ball in play tonight.”

Brewer said his team received another solid pitching effort by Madison Sechrest, Emily Albright and Jazz Jervis, as the trio shut down Winchester’s offense.

“All three girls really pitched well,” Brewer said. “Our defense was spot on again and we’ll be able to have all of pitchers in the championship game, so we’ll just roll the dice and go with it.”

Brewer also commented on the play of Madison Sechrest at the plate.

“Madison had another good game at the plate,” he said. “Jade Williams had a big hit and so did Makinlee Philpot. I like our chances in our next game, we just need to go out there and keep doing what got us here.”

The championship is scheduled for 6 p.m. today.
