Jackets blanked

Defending region champion South Laurel cruises past W'burg

CORBIN —  

By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Cardinals made quick work of visiting Williamsburg Monday, breezing past John Mountjoy’s squad in a 10-0 mercy win after five innings.

The Yellow Jackets came into the game a bit depleted with two starters out of the game and the bulk of his seniors having missed all of last week due to the school’s annual senior trip.

Despite the tough loss, Mountjoy didn’t make excuses for his team. He said in the end, the players on the field didn’t execute well enough to compete with the Cardinals.

“We were down a few guys from the start, but you still have to come out and play with the guys you have,” he said. “We threw four freshman at them out there on the mound and they weren’t able to throw strikes consistently, which will cost you against good teams.

“Hopefully we can come back out Tuesday and play better and compete with these guys at our place,” he added.

South Laurel jumped ahead with three runs in the first inning thanks to a trio of walks followed by consecutive singles off the bats of Austin Moore and Zach Allen to make the score 3-0.

The Cardinals added two more runs in the second inning on a two-run single from Daniel Neal to push the lead to 5-0. Allen scored again in the third after reaching via walk to extend the gap to 6-0.

Three walks and three hits allowed the Cardinals to score four runs in the fifth inning and close the win.  

The loss is just the second of the season for Williamsburg as the Yellow Jackets fall to 9-2 on the season. South Laurel improves to 7-3.

The two teams will face off today at 5:30 at Williamsburg’s Briar Creek Park.
