Lady Colonels cruise in 10-0 win over McCreary Central

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

WHITLEY COUNTY — Whitley County coach Kelly Sawyers has been waiting for her Lady Colonels to get healthy and three of her starters were back in tip-top shape heading into Tuesday’s match-up with McCreary Central.

The Lady Colonels got off to a slow start, but once they got going, they were hard to stop during their 10-0 win over the Lady Raiders.

Whitley County jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half and added eight more goals in the second half to pick up the easy 10-0 win.

“We’ve been missing three girls and that has really hurt us the past couple of games,” Sawyers said. “This was their first game back and it helped. I know we started slow in the first half, but we talked to them at halftime and I felt like they responded.

“It was a close game for a while, but once we started scoring goals in the second half we were able to put the game away,” she added. “I do believe we are getting better and the girls are really trying hard. The one thing I would like for us to do is possess the ball more.”

Allison Jones led the Lady Colonels with four goals while Jessica Dennis-Bay added three in the win. Katelyn Lawson, Rachel Moore and Kameron Wright also scored in the win, as Whitley County improved to 4-4-1 and will play host to Corbin Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
