South Laurel overcomes injuries to win, 5-3

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — It wasn’t easy, but the South Laurel Cardinals managed to slip past Monticello Tuesday with a 5-3 win to open the regular season.

It looked as if South Laurel was going to cruise to an easy win over the Trojans thanks to two quick goals by Tanner Chaney.

But injuries to Chaney, Seth Hale and Rivers Atkins got South Laurel off-track and allowed the Trojans to get back into the game.

Monticello rallied and scored two goals in the second half to tie the game at two apiece before the Cardinals answered with three consecutive goals by Logan Cornett, Daniel Poston and Atkins and put the game away.

“I’m happy with the win, but we’ve got some things we need to work on,” South Laurel coach Amber Hensley said. “We had a lack of communication at times and we’ve got to work on our finishing.

“The injuries really rattled us, though,” she added. “I thought we really had good possession in the first half, but didn’t in the second half. I’m proud of the team for answering after they scored two goals. We just need to continue to improve.”

The Cardinals will be in action Thursday at home against Middlesboro.
