Rivalry Win

South Laurel remains unbeaten with 8-5 win over Jaguars

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Cardinals stayed perfect on the season Friday, knocking off crosstown rival North Laurel at home, 8-5.

The loss was the third of the season for the Jaguars, who came into the game having won two straight over Middlesboro and Bryan Station.

The Jaguars took a 2-0 lead early on a two-run home run off the bat of Austin Thompson, but that wasn’t enough.

South Laurel tied the game in the bottom of the fourth inning with a pair of runs, only to have the Jaguars answer in the top of the sixth.

The Jaguars went ahead 5-2 on the heels of a three-run sixth inning, but the lead was short-lived as South Laurel came through with six runs of their in the bottom half of the sixth to make the score 8-5.

North Laurel came up short in the seventh inning thanks to Cardinals’ reliever Austin Vigeant, who held the Jaguars scoreless in the seventh inning.

After the win, North Laurel head coach Darren McWhorter said he was pleased with the way his team played, but said the Jaguars shot themselves in the foot on the offensive side of things.

“We played well, but we were doomed by the number of guys we left on base in this one,” McWhorter said. “Zach Hurley pitched a good game for us and he kept his pitch count low for a while, but we had to pull him once he reached his limit.

“We gave up a few runs after the pitching change and in the end, we just couldn’t get any more runs across,” he added. “We played well, but when you play a team like South Laurel, you have to take advantage of every opportunity.”
