Rolling along


By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — The North Laurel Minor League All-Stars got another solid pitching effort from Daria Casey and managed to pull off an important 7-1 win over Clay County Tuesday.

North Laurel coach Jon Sizemore admitted he was worried coming into the game against Clay County, but was pleased with the end result.

“That was big,” Sizemore said. “We knew they had a good little pitcher coming against us and we hadn’t seen nothing like that yet, and I knew it was a big win for us.”

Sizemore decided to go with Casey on the mound and she didn’t disappoint. She tossed six innings and finished the game with 12 strikeouts.

“She went all six innings and pitched a great game for us,” Sizemore said. “She only gave up one run and pitched an excellent game for us. I couldn’t ask for a better effort.”

Sizemore credited Malee Philpot’s hitting at the plate as a key that jump-started North Laurel’s ability to jump out to a quick 3-0 start.

“She hit the ball real well tonight and we hit the ball well as a team, too,” he said. “We had some very good baserunning and played very good defense tonight, too.

“We came out ready to play and that was big for us,” Sizemore added. “I’m really proud of these girls. They played great/”

The win advances Sizemore’s team one step closer to winning the district tournament as well.

“I’m happy with where we are at,” he said. “We’re looking good and I like our chances even more now. We just need to continue to play like we have been playing.”
