Still the same

Lady Cards continue dominance over 13th Region foes in 5-0 win

CORBIN — By Denis House For the Times-Tribune

LONDON — Four second half goals in the span of 19 minutes helped South Laurel break open a one-goal game en route to a 5-0 win over Corbin to claim yet another region title.

“That’s eight out of the last nine,” South Laurel coach Todd White said. “That’s not too bad.”

The Lady Cardinals, with the win, now advance to the Sweet 16 Tuesday when they will play the winner of Thursday night’s Ashland-Russell game at the winner’s home field. That match is scheduled for 7 p.m.

South Laurel (15-4-2) wasted no time getting on the board, scoring in the second minute on a goal from Karli Parker. With that quick goal it looked like this might be a repeat of last week’s district final between these same two teams, a game that South won, 10-0.

But it was anything like that game.

“We didn’t execute like we did last week against them,” White said. “We weren’t sharp in the first half. We didn’t come ready to play and they (Corbin) out played us. Our missing an outside fullback really disrupted our play. Our effort wasn’t great in the first half. Corbin won about 60 percent of the 50-50 balls.”

It could have been 2-0 at the half had it not been for Kaitlyn Waddle. In the 17th minute, Kristen White found herself with the ball and a clear shot on goal, that is until Waddle was able to get a foot on it and directed the ball away. Parker ended up with the ball and fired another shot that Waddle was able to deflect.

Parker found Meredith McCowan in the 46th minute and her shot beat keeper Meghann Blackburn to make it 2-0. It stayed that way until the 63rd minute, when South Laurel added three more goals in the span of two minutes to take complete control of the match.

In the 63rd minute Parker took a free kick from around 30 yards that Blackburn made the save on but couldn’t control the rebound. Haley House, who had missed on a couple of nice chances in the first half, made sure she didn’t this time, beating Blackburn to make it 3-0. Sierra Forbes scored in the 64th minute, then a handball was called on Corbin in the 65th minute resulting in a penalty kick, which McCowan converted from the spot for her second goal and the 5-0 final.

Corbin (11-11-1) was forced to play the final 11 minutes a person down when Morgan Boggs was red carded for a trip on Parker in the 69th minute.

Afterwards, White said he was tickled with yet another region title.

“It’s an honor to keep doing this,” White said, referring to coaching the Lady Cardinals. “We weren’t sure how Corbin would respond after we beat them 10-0 last week, but they came out and took it to us in the first half. Now we are off to the Sweet Sixteen.”

Waddle, Boggs and Hannah Henegar were named to the All-Region Team for Corbin, with Rachel Logan being named the Defensive MVP. For South Laurel, Julie Fouts, House, McCowan and White were named to the team, with Parker being named Offensive MVP.
