Lady Cardinals rebound from loss to Corbin

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals rebounded nicely from their 50th District loss to Corbin by defeating 12th Region foe Rockcastle County, 8-4, on Thursday.

The Lady Cardinals improved to 26-6 by pounding out 13 hits in the win.

“We played a lot better tonight,” South Laurel coach James Burns said. “I told them before we played, we just needed to clean up on defense, and I thought we did that. We’ve made 14 errors in three games. If we just clean up the defense and get some timely hits, we’ll be OK.”

South Laurel managed to do both against the Lady Rockets, turning in a flawless game on the defensive side of things while coming through with some hits with two outs that produced runs.”

The Lady Cardinals jumped out to an 5-0 lead after three innings thanks to a run-scoring double by Makenzie Powenski in the first inning and a two-run single by Destiney Salva in the third inning.

Rockcastle County made a rally in the fourth inning with three runs, but the Lady Cardinals shut the door on any comeback attempt by adding three more runs in the sixth inning, as Powenski’s run-scoring double gave her team a 7-3 edge while Leslie Dixon’s single up the middle scored Powenski, allowing South Laurel to build an 8-3 lead.

Salva sealed the deal on the mound and improved to 5-1 on the season, as she tossed a complete game, allowing eight hits, four runs while striking out two batters.

“We played real well,” Burns said. “Destiney pitched well, and we threw one certain pitch and we stuck with it. I told Destiney I was a one trick pony, and it kept working.”

Hagan Burns led the way with a 3-for-3 effort at the plate, delivering a double, an RBI and a run scored, while eighth-graders Powenski and Dixon each collected three hits apiece. Powenski finished the game with three runs scored, a double and an RBI, while Dixon drove in a run in the win.
