Lady Cards pick up 5-1 win over Southwestern

CORBIN — By Steve Cornelius For the Times-Tribune

After a lightning delay with 4:53 left on the clock, the South Laurel girls soccer team came away with a dominating 5-1 win over Southwestern High School on Tuesday at the Plains.

After the Lady Warriors scored the first goal at the 11-minute mark, the Lady Cardinals reeled off five unanswered goals through the next 50 minutes to pick up their first win of the season.

Southwestern junior Katherine Citak scored the first goal of the game on a header in the penalty box which was set up by a corner kick from Hanna Ratliff.

While the Lady Warriors controlled the action in the early going, South Laurel got the equalizer goal in the 34th minute after senior defender Sarah DeCarlo scored on a 40-foot bomb off a cross deflection. The score remained tied 1-1 at intermission.

South Laurel struck early in the second half when Kristen White scored off a rebound from a deflected shot attempt by Meredith McCowan at the 51-minute mark.

Four minutes later, Holly Smith laid out a perfect lead pass to Haley House, who scored from close range.

Less than a minute later, Karli Parker crossed to Kristen White, who sent the ball past Southwestern keeper Kaylee Shepherd to put the Lady Cardsup 4-1.

In the 69th minute, South Laurel sophomore Tiffani Moore scored from close range to put her team up 5-1.

At the 4:53 mark, Karli Parker was fouled in the penalty box and was set to take a penalty kick, when the game was delayed and eventually cancelled.

South Laurel outshot Southwestern 13-4 for the entire game.

    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.
