Taking care of business

Lady Cards defeat Knox Central in 3 innings

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

SOUTH LAUREL — The defending 13th Region champion South Laurel Lady Cardinals remain unbeaten after dominating 13th Region foe Knox Central in only three winnings, winning, 15-0.

The Lady Cardinals improved to 6-0 while pounding out 12 hits during their 15-run win.

Senior pitcher Hagan Burns continued her dominance on the mound, striking out five batters and allowing only one hit while recording her sixth win of the year.

South Laurel coach James Burns said he’s happy with where his team is a couple of weeks into the season.

“Even with the younger players we have, we still return a strong core of players,” he said. “These girls can play, and we still have the best pitcher in the region on the mound. You add all of that with a strong defense, and that’s why we’ve gotten off to a good start.”

It didn’t take the Lady Cardinals long to take control of the game, scoring four runs in the first inning while adding 10 more in the second and another run in the third inning to wrap-up the victory.

“We were able to come out and take care of business,” Burns said. “We played hard all the way through. we are playing really good right now.”

Thursday’s game also marked the return of Destiny Salva to the line-up after missing South Laurel’s first five games of the season.

She looked like she was in mid-season form. Leading the way with a 3-for-3 effort at the plate while driving in a team-high three RBI as well. She also pitched a scoreless inning.

“It’s big to get Destiny back,” Burns said. “It’s also real big to get an extra pitcher. She did a great job hitting tonight.”

Madyson Morris and Kaylyn Perkins each collected two hits in the win while Perkins, Hagan Burns and Powenski each drove in two runs apiece.

South Laurel will be back in action today against one of the state’s best teams — Boyle County.

“We gave Boyle everything they could stand last season, but lost a close game,” Burns said. “It should be a really good game.”

So. Laurel 15, Knox Cent. 0

Knox Cent.    0    0    0—  0    1    4

So. Laurel    4    10    1—15    12    1

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
