Lady Cards fall to Madison Central, 5-2

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

MADISON CENTRAL — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals saw their nine-game win streak come to an end after dropping a 5-2 decision to red-hot Madison Central Thursday.

The Lady Cardinals (21-3) had numerous chances to take control of the game, but left runners in scoring position throughout the contest.

“That’s been our Achilles’ heel the entire season,” South Laurel coach James Burns said. “We get runners in scoring position, but can’t come up with the two-out hit. We had runners on second and third three different times and left the bases loaded once because we couldn’t come through with a two-out hit.”

South Laurel was looking to get back in the game with runners on second and third and one out when Madyson Morris hit a line drive that looked like it was going to score both Leslie Dixon and Brittany Vandeventer, but Madison Central’s second baseman caught the ball, and doubled up Vandeventer at second base.

“We just couldn’t get any breaks,” Burns said. “I had to take Hagan (Burns) out (from pitching) in the fifth inning because her shoulder was hurting, so we might shut her down a few days, we’ll see.”

South Laurel finished the game with seven hits, as Makenzie Powenski led the way with a 3-for-3 effort while Dixon went 2-for-3.

“Our eighth graders led the way,” Burns said. “Makenzie was 3-for-3 and Leslie was 2-for-3. They had five of our seven hits. Brittany had an RBI and so did Madyson.

“This was a good game for us,” he added. “They are a very good team. We need to get back on track tomorrow, but we need more games like this. It will just make us better.”

The Lady Cardinals will host both Perry Central and Bell County today.
