North Laurel jumped out to an early lead with three runs in the first inning.

Noah Rogers led off the inning with a single to left field, followed by a walk by Blake VanHook. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch and Rogers later scored on a second wild pitch.

Ty Baker scored in the fourth inning and Tanner Bowling crossed home in the fifth as North Laurel stretched its lead to 7-1.

Harlan scored its final runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Jay Harris started the offense with a two-out single. He later scored when Lane Jones delivered a bunt single.

Harris recorded six strikeouts, while giving up eight hits and two walks in five innings in the loss. Adkins struck out one in one hitless inning of relief.

Steele had a double and a single to power the Harlan offense. Jones delivered two singles, while Adkins, Harris and Josh Turner each added a single.

Rogers allowed four hits and struck out one batter in 2 1/3 innings in the start to claim the win. Kelley had four strikeouts and didn’t allow a hit in two innings of relief. Cameron Cotton struck out one batter and allowed four hits in 1 1/3 inning. Baker recorded the final out.
