NORTH LAUREL — The North Laurel Lady Jaguars dug themselves an early hole during Friday’s matchup with the state’s No. 2 ranked team in Scott County, eventually dropping a 5-0 decision.
North Laurel tallied four hits in the game, but Becky Osborne’s squad failed to capitalize when opportunities arose.
When all was said and done, the Lady Jaguars had left seven runners on base, including the third inning when they left them loaded after a pair of Scott County errors put runners in scoring position. After the game, Osborne was quick to point out that her team has to produce in those situations if it expects to beat teams like Scott County.
“We hit the ball well a few times, but our hitting has been spotty,” Osborne said. “We didn’t get timely hits tooday and we haven’t been getting them at all lately.
“We just have to know as a team that we have to come through in those situations and do what has to be done,” she added. “But this was a really good Scott County team, probably the strongest team that we have seen in a while.”
Scott County took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning to put the Lady Jaguars on their heels early. Kelsey Crowe took a one out pitch over the fence to put her team on top 1-0 and a pair of runs after the fact pushed the gap to 3-0.
Lady Cardinals’ starter Marlee Tevis set North Laurel down in order in the first two innings before finally allowing a baserunner in the third inning after her team added a pair of runs, including a solo home run by Tevis, pushing the gap to 5-0.
North Laurel put baserunners on each of the next four innings, but failed to get any of them across the plate.
