SOUTH LAUREL — Two goals from Logan Blankenship lifted the visiting George Rogers Clark Cardinals past host South Laurel Cardinals, 2-0, on Saturday.

Both goals came in the second half of a very physical contest that saw four cards issued, including a red card ejection to GRC coach Albert Gross. South assistant Brooks Cawood and two GC players received yellow cards.

The ejection of Gross came with less than two minutes before halftime, while Cawood’s came earlier in the half. Both cards were given for questioning what they perceived as lack of calls from the center official.

Afterwards, South Laurel coach Amber Hensley was pleased with the way her defense played despite coming up on the short end of the scoreboard.

“That was the best defense we’ve played all year,” Hensley said. “I can’t complain.”

George Rogers Clark came into the match with a 5-1-1 record and exerted control from the start, maintaining the majority of the possession but could only muster one really good scoring opportunity when Blankenship hit the side netting in the 16th minute. As the half wore on, the play became more physical between the two sets of Cardinals.

South Laurel keeper Zach Allen came up with a couple of big saves early in the second half to keep the game scoreless. That is until the 48th minute when a GRC corner kick from Evan McCoy found Blankenship at the far post. His header beat Allen to make it 1-0.

Blankenship’s free kick from around 25 yards out in the 59th minute made it 2-0.

“Everybody that played today played well,” Hensley said.

South Laurel will travel to Estill County Sept. 19.
