No. 5 Scott Co. slips past No. 22 South Laurel, 1-0

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — eams, and a battle of Lady Cardinals, it was No. 5 Scott County coming out on top the No. 22 South Laurel Thursday evening, 1-0.

“We knew it wouldn’t be easy,” South Laurel coach James Burns said. “Scott County has a very good team. They have a good pitcher and we weren’t able to get many hit off of them.”

It was also a game of inches. Six inches, according to Burns. A first inning hit off the centerfield fence saw the Scott County batter end up on third. The next batter hit a single that scored the only run of the game.

“We were a couple of inches of catching the ball,” Burns said.

Then in the last inning, Amber Hyde sent a rocket to left center that was caught by the Scott County player. “Just three inches over and the ball would have dropped in,” Burns said.

The loss was South Laurel’s first of the season, dropping to 3-1. Coming into the game, the Lady Cards had outscored their opponents, 44-1. Burns said his team needed a game like this after three straight routs.

“We needed to gauge ourselves and I’m happy with the way we played,” Burns said.
