Cards lose on the road

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

STANFORD — The South Laurel Cardinals entered Friday’s game with Lincoln County needing a win over the Patriots to keep their slim Class 5A playoff hopes alive.

But it didn’t happen.

The Cardinals fell to 1-7 overall on the season and 0-3 against district foes, as Lincoln County picked up an easy 63-20 win over Larry Welch’s squad.

The Patriots scored in many different ways during their 43-point win, as T.J. Torres’ 100-yard interception return for a score highlighted their victory.

South Laurel’s Jason Mitchell continued to put together an impressive season by returning a kick-off for 95 yards while reaching paydirt while quarterback Jonathan Jenkins threw for two touchdowns in the loss — one a 36-yarder to Jeremy Prichard and a four-yarder to Aaron Quinn.

The 63 points allowed is the most a Cardinals team has given up since at least 14 years (KHSAA records only go back to 1998).
