Goals still not coming for Cardinals

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A goal in the 15th minute by Berea’s Neil Caytor was all the Pirates needed as they blanked host South Laurel, 1-0.

For South, it was a repeat of how most of its games have gone this season: Dominate time of possession, but fail to finish.

“We had one defensive breakdown and they scored,” coach Amber Hensley said. “Then we hung our heads.”

The Cards dominated play early, with Hunter House missing wide in the 10th minute then seconds later having another shot saved by keeper Gabriel Gomez. In the 14th minute, Rivers Atkins’ shot was also saved by Gomez.

A minute later Caytor slid to get to the ball and directed a shot past South keeper Zach Allen for the 1-0 lead.

South Laurel almost equalized in the 36th minute when a cross from TK Carter found the head of House at the far post, but his header banged off the crossbar.

Although both teams had chances in the second half neither could capitalize, as Caytor’s goal held up for the 1-0 win.

“They players don’t listen to each other,” Hensley said. “We need to correct that.”

South Laurel was scheduled to travel to Estill County Thursday night.
