Lady Colonels blanked by North Laurel


By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY – Sometimes good just isn’t good enough. That was the case Monday as the Lady Colonels of Whitley County fell to North Laurel at home 5-0.

Whitley County coach Kelly Sawyers said she felt like her team played well against the Lady Jaguars, just not well enough.

“I felt like our girls moved the ball really well, but we were just not able to score,” Sawyers said. “North Laurel moved the ball well also and they also do a great job of passing.

“Defensively, we just weren’t able to hold up against them and we gave away some easy shots,” she added. “I thought we chased the ball around a lot and when you do that, the other team is going to find some holes in the defense.”

North Laurel got the scoring started early when Chelsey Hensley punched one in from about 15 yards out in the 11th minute to put her team on top, 1-0.

It didn’t take long for North Laurel to strike again, this time it was freshman forward Mollie Dotson who did the damage, scoring one of her two goals in the 17th minute to extend the Lady Jaguars' lead to 2-0.

Dotson struck again in the 28th minute to push the gap to 3-0 as North Laurel held that advantage at halftime.

The Lady Jaguars would add a pair of goals in the second half to make the final score 5-0, handing Whitley County it’s seventh loss of the season.

Despite the loss, Sawyers said she feels like her team has improved throughout the season and expects them to continue to do so as the season winds down.

“We still have some tough matches, but we also have some matches in which I think we can win,” Sawyers said. “We’ve played a tough schedule to a point and that’s by design.

“You want your team to be challenged, but you don’t want to see the girls get blown out of the park because that’s when their confidence gets damaged,” she added.  "We’ve played some tough teams with some not so tough teams in between, so we do that to try and get better while learning.”

Whitley County will return to action today as they travel to Bell County to face the Lady Bobcats.
