Local teams battle through soggy weekend

CORBIN —

By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

As rain hung around for most of the day Saturday, several local were forced to cancel games, but there was plenty of action to go around.

Knox Central

The Knox Central Panthers split a doubleheader with Boyle County as they picked up a 9-8 win, but dropped a 12-1 decision on the road.

The victory was a back-and-forth affair as the Panthers grabbed an early lead, fell behind 8-6 in the sixth inning, and had to score three runs to get the win in the sixth inning.

Knox Central never managed to get the offense going in the loss, falling behind 8-0 after four innings. The Panthers managed one run in the sixth inning, eventually falling 12-1.

South Laurel

South Laurel dropped a 7-4 decision to Mercer County Saturday, dropping the Cardinals to 18-6 on the season. The loss was the third in the past five games for a team that had won nine straight at one point.

South Laurel will be back in action today as it hosts Knox Central at 5:30 p.m.

Corbin

After trailing 1-0 for the first three innings, Corbin took a 2-1 lead with a pair of runs in the fourth, but couldn’t hold on.

Somerset answered with two in the fifth to jump out in front, 3-2. The Briar Jumpers held on for the win.

The loss drops Corbin to 16-14 on the season.
