Cardinals finish season with 56-0 loss to. M. Southern

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Cardinals opened the 2012 season with a lot of promise, but they never lived up to their pre-season billing.

Many believed the Cardinals had a chance to make a run at their first district title since 1999, but an injury-plagued season kept Larry Welch’s squad from reaching the playoffs for the second straight season.

The Cardinals’ woes continued Friday, as district foe Madison Southern added to South Laurel’s frustrations this season by picking up a 56-0 win.

The Cardinals didn’t have an answer for the Eagles’ Damien Harris, who helped his team to improve to 6-3 on the season while wrapping up the district’s No. 2 seed in the process.

The loss means the Cardinals will finish the season with a 1-9 record along with an eight-game losing streak. South Laurel was outscored 365-127 during the process while suffering its first shut out in 25 games (21-0 loss to Corbin on Sept. 17, 2010).
