Lady Cardinals hold on to beat Middlesboro

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — With less than a week remaining in the regular season, South Laurel coach James Burns is starting to have some concerns.

The Lady Cardinals’ struggles at the plate continued during Tuesday’s 6-4 win over Middlesboro, a team the Lady Cardinals beat earlier in the season in three innings, 18-0.

“We didn’t play like we wanted to be here tonight,” Burns said. “I thought this was the worst we’ve played all year.

“There is a lot that played into it, though,” he added. “It was senior night and we have finals and honestly, this is just a tough week.”

South Laurel (22-6) jumped out to a 5-1 lead after a three-run homer by Cassandra Johnson, but the Lady Yellow Jackets rallied late to make a game of it.

“If it wasn’t for Madyson Morris making a nice play in the seventh inning, the game would have been tied,” Burns said. “The big thing is that we’re just struggling. We’re not playing good right now.

“I told the girls I’m worried,” he added. “We’ve got to get our hitting fixed and we’re going straight to the tees tomorrow. We’re dropping our hands and popping the ball up.”

The Lady Cardinals have three game remaining in regular season play — a home game against Southwestern Thursday and a doubleheader against Estill County on Friday.
