North Laurel eliminated in extra innings

CORBIN — By Les Dixon  / Sports Editor

WINCHESTER — The North Laurel 9-& 10-year-old All-Star fastpitch team saw their season come to an end Tuesday after losing to Marion County, 4-1, in eight innings during pool play action of the State Tournament.

North Laurel turned out to be its own worst enemy, as coach Recil Jones’ squad failed to push across any runs during the fourth and fifth innings after having bases loaded.

“It’s just a really tough loss,” Jones said. “We had bases loaded in the fourth inning and bases loaded in the fifth inning and couldn’t score. When you don’t take advantage of those type of opportunities, you could run into some trouble and we did.”

North Laurel’s Peyton Gregory kept her team in the game on the mound, but had to be removed after the seventh inning after pitching the allotted innings a pitcher can throw in a game.

Marion County took control of the game an inning later by scoring three runs while taking a commanding lead.

“They scored those three runs and that was it,” Jones said. “The missed opportunities really cost us. I thought Peyton did a fantastic job pitching for us — we just came up short.”

North Laurel cruised to a 4-0 record in District 4 action before finishing the state tournament with a 1-2 mark.

“We are very happy with the way things went this year,” Jones said. “The girls had a fantastic district tournament, but we just came up short tonight.”
