Another no-no

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times-Tribune

The North Laurel Minor League All Stars got one step closer to a state title on Tuesday, defeating Morgan County 13-0 in the second round of the state softball tournament. With the win, North Laurel will take on South Hardin today for a chance to play in the finals on Friday.

“I thought we did a good job of not playing down to the level of our competition because it seems in games like this you tend to do that,” said North Laurel coach John Sizemore. “We have a competitive game next game. They (South Hardin) are a disciplined team and have some strong pitching. It’s going to be a tough game.”

North Laurel’s bats were hot to start the game, scoring eight runs in the first inning. North Laurel had five hits in the inning and capitalized on several Morgan County errors, with their first seven batters reaching base and scoring.

Despite failing to score in the second inning, North Laurel went on to add two runs in the third and fourth innings each.

“We played good. We hit the ball well and had good pitching and good defense,” said Sizemore. “We just have to be ready for tomorrow.”

Kambrie Collier led North Laurel at the plate with a single, walk and two runs scored. Maylee Philpot also added a single and scored two runs.

Daria Casey picked up the win for North Laurel, pitching one inning and striking out all three batters she faced. Maggie Dagley came on in relief in the second inning, and had two strikeouts. Taylor Jones pitched the final two innings, striking out three. The three pitchers allowed no hits for the entire game.
