Lady Cards’ win streak ends at 13

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

BOYLE COUNTY — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals’ 13-game win streak came to an end Thursday, as they dropped a 3-2, extra-inning decision to Boyle County on the road.

After taking the lead early in the game, James Burns’ squad had an opportunity to take a lead, but couldn’t get a run in late.

The Lady Rebels managed to come through in the same situation and Burns said that was the difference in the game.

“First of all, Boyle is a really good team and they have a pair of tremendous pitchers,” Burns said. “We expected them to pitch a girl with a really good rise-ball, but instead they went with a drop-ball pitcher and we were swinging over everything.

“The difference in the game was a situation where we failed to get a runner over the third base on a sacrifice and they got the job done in the same situation,” he added. “They’re a good team all around and they did what they had to do to win.”

South Laurel took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the third inning, but the Lady Rebels tied things up with two runs in the fifth inning.

All was quiet, especially the Lady Cardinals’ bats until Boyle County’s game-winning run in the eighth inning. In all, South Laurel hitters struck out 13 times, a statistic that Burns said was very uncharacteristic of his team.

Considering the loss is just the fifth this season and only the second to an in-state team (Scott County was the other), Burns said though he has an idea of how his team will respond, he is anxious to see what the Lady Cardinals do today against McCreary Central.

“These girls don’t like to lose and they never have,” he said. “McCreary Central is a pretty good team. They’ve beaten Southwestern, who is one of the best teams in the 13th Region.

“I’ve got an idea of how I expect them to play, but we’ll just have to wait and see,” he added. “Hopefully they come out ready to hit the ball.”

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
