The South Laurel Lady Cardinals survived a scare from Pulaski County and pulled out the 2-0 win (26-24, 25-12) in impressive fashion to stay undefeated.

“The first game against Pulaski County was very competitive, but I think we were lacking focus and that is probably what our main problem was out there,” South Laurel coach Kaye Smith said. “This made us 19 straight and we are due a bad game every now and then, if we aren’t focused, but our girls came back and played well.”

Lauren Wombles led the way with 13 kills in game one and that’s what it took to get the Lady Cardinals the win.

“Lauren and Jamie had a great game for us, and that is the only time in 19 games that we have had that two handed call on us,” Smith said. “I don’t mean to complain, because he is a really good official, but a few years back we saw the same thing with another official.

“We had a little talk about it and it seemed to go away, but now it has come back and it seems like we are going to go and talk about it again,” she added. “You don’t want to get yourself in a situation where you have to come from behind and win. Thankfully, we were able to rally to get the win.”

The Lady Cardinals fell behind 16-13, but after a timeout, came back with a 12-7 run to seal the deal in game one.

“I had to call a timeout to settle them down because they were a little upset on the bad calls,” Smith said. “We told them to calm down, play their game, do the best they could and that was all they could do. I said, try not to worry about the calls and just go out there and have some fun.”
