South Laurel Rallies to knock off Knox Central, 48-45

CORBIN — By Les Dixon/ Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — Konnie Snyder’s South Laurel Lady Cardinals stared down an eight-point deficit (37-29) with 7:21 remaining in the fourth quarter before pulling out a 48-45 come- from-behind win over 13th Region foe Knox Central Tuesday.

Taylor Arthur triggered an 19-8 run after connecting with an old fashioned three-point play with 7:14 remaining, as South Laurel roared back to pick up the three-point victory.

“You’d like for your team to have that resiliency, but you don’t like to be in that position,” Snyder said. “I would rather not have them have that 16-0 run, but I am proud of our kids for hanging with it. It showed a lot of character for staying with it and not just fold at that point.

“This bunch wants to win and they want to play well,” she added. “I don’t think we’ve done that yet. We’ve had a couple of games where we have scored some, but as far as playing well, we’ve not even come close to reaching what we can be. We just need to keep chucking at it and keep trying different things until we find the perfect fit.”

It looked as if the Lady Panthers (4-3) were going to run away with the win. Knox Central fell behind 29-22 in the third quarter before reeling off 16 straight points to take an eight-point lead in the final quarter of play.

But like she has done the entire season, Arthur took over when it counted and finished the game with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

“Taylor is a very valuable player for us,” Snyder said. “We’re trying some different combinations and some different looks to get some more scoring in the lineup.

“I thought the kids in the lineup tonight looked for shots a bit more.”

Both teams struggled at times in the first half, as the Lady Cardinals jumped out to a 16-13 edge. South Laurel led by as many as seven points in the second quarter before Knox Central’s Jenna Mills hit a three-pointer to make the score, 22-18, heading into the locker room at the half.

Mills led the way with 24 points for the Lady Panthers as Knox Central finished the game with a 17-of-46 effort from the floor and 14 turnovers while the Lady Cardinals connected with 17-of-52 shot attempts while turning the ball over 20 times.

    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.
