Harlan hands Lady Colonels 15-1 loss at home

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Lady Colonels continued to struggle Tuesday, dropping a 15-1 decision to visiting Harlan Independent.

Lady Colonels’ coach Amanda Moses said that after Monday’s loss to Knox Central, she didn’t think her team could play any worse than it did, but she admitted she was wrong after Tuesday’s loss, which included 10 errors by the home team.

“I told my girls Monday that I really couldn’t see us playing any worse than we did against Knox Central,” Moses said. “Well, these girls love to prove me wrong, so they came out here and played even worse than I thought they could.

“I don’t know of any team that has ever won a game in which it had 10 errors and I don’t think that’s even possible,” she added. “We just have to make plays like we know we can make and act like we want to be on the field.”

The Lady Dragons jumped ahead with a three-run first inning, but a run by Whitley County in the bottom of the third cut the lead 3-1.

Harlan extended the lead with runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings to make the score 5-1.

The wheels fell off completely for the Lady Colonels in the sixth inning as Harlan added 10 runs to extend the gap to 15-1. Whitley County added a run in the bottom of the sixth, but it was too little too late for the home team.

Moses said she hoped this loss would be an eye-opener for her team as she felt like it had run out of excuses for the recent poor play.

“We’re a young team, but I think we’re at a point where you can’t use that excuse because we’ve got some games under our belt,” she added. “We have girls throwing balls to bases where there is nobody and we’re dropping balls that are right in front of us. We better figure out something fast because we’ve got Corbin coming in Thursday and if we play like this the score will be 50-0 in three innings.”
