Runaway Win

North Laurel cruises past Corbin, 2-3 in tourney opener


By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LONDON — The North Laurel All Stars came away with a 21-3 win in the opening round of the 9-10-year-old All Star Tournament.

The win sends North Laurel to the second round of the winner’s bracket to face Clay County, while Corbin falls to the losers bracket and will be back in action Wednesday evening.

After the win, North Laurel coach Jonathan Sizemore said it was good to get the first win out of the way, but was quick to caution his team when it came to the next opponent.

“We wanted to come out and be aggressive and we were able to do that tonight,” Sizemore said. “We got the win and we’re moving on and that’s really all you look for at this point.

“We have a tough game coming up against Clay County and we know we’ll have to make some adjustments from what we saw tonight,” he added. “We’ll get our kids ready and hopefully they’ll play well.”

North Laurel jumped ahead with a six-run first inning thanks to five walks, a hit batter and a number of passed balls.

North Laurel added eight runs in the second inning, extending the gap to 14-0 at the end of two innings.

Corbin was able to get on the board in the top of the third after a pair of walks led to two runs, trimming the gap to 14-2.

North Laurel broke things open in the bottom of the third with a seven-run rally, stretching the lead to 21-2 heading to the top of the fourth inning. Corbin plated one more run in the third to cut the lead to 21-3, but that was all the offense Corbin could muster.

Despite the loss, Corbin coach Karen Garland said she hoped her team could learn from the experience and come back stronger Wednesday night.

“I knew North Laurel was a good team, but we didn’t expect to see the kind of pitching we saw tonight,” Garland said. “We told our girls that we have to turn this into a learning experience and try to get better because of this game.

“Hopefully this kind of gets the jitters out of our kids and they come back ready to play Wednesday night,” she added.

North Laurel will face Clay County tonight at 6 p.m., while Corbin will play Pulaski County Wednesday at 6 p.m.
