Both North and South Laurel lose crucial district games

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

Both North and South Laurel football teams took a step back in district play Thursday.

Chris Larkey’s Jaguars led 14-0 and 21-7 against Pulaski County before losing to the Maroons, 28-21.

Larry Welch’s Cardinals lost a heartbreaker, too. South Laurel led throughout the game and scored a touchdown with less than :30 in regulation to force overtime.

The Cardinals scored first and took a 41-34 lead, but it was shortlived, as the Warriors added a score and converted the two-point conversion to win, 42-41.

“We just let it slip away,”  Welch said. “It’s real disappointing.”

Welch said he told his players before the two-point conversion to watch out for the quarterback to tight end pass play, but Southwestern still managed to find paydirt.

“I told them, told them and told them, but evidently they didn’t hear what I said,” he said. “I figured they would run the play and surely we would cover the tight end, but we didn’t.”

The loss dropped South Laurel to 0-2 in district play while the Warriors evened their record at 1-1.

Larkey’s Jaguars had a chance to move into the district’s driver’s seat, but surrendered 21 unanswered points to fall to 1-1 in district play while Pulaski County improved to 2-0.

“The momentum changed on us (in the third quarter). Our defense played good enough for us to win, but we bogged down on offense,” said Larkey. “Pulaski has a good football team, but we shot ourselves in the foot — not being able to run the football in the second half.”
