Cards pick up win in season finale

South boys' soccer wins over Clinton County

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — It’s always nice to win on Senior Night.

It makes it twice as nice when your lone senior scores.

That’s what happened Thursday night in South Laurel’s 3-1 win over Clinton County as senior Jacob Hubbuch accounted for one of the three Cardinal goals.

“They played like they wanted to win tonight,” South Laurel coach Amber Hensley said. “We took decent shots with power and not right at the keeper.”

South Laurel scored first, in the 5th minute, when Hunter House hit the post but Ben Tonkel was there to collect the rebound and score for the 1-0 lead. The Cards controlled most of the run of action in the first half, with Clinton County getting very few chances.

Tonkel almost made it 2-0 in the 22nd minute but his header went just over the bar. Two minutes later, a House free kick was tipped over the bar for a corner kick. On the ensuing corner, House sent a nice ball in that Tonkel got a foot on but, like his header, went just over the bar.

South Laurel’s second goal came in the 29th minute when Jacob Smart sent a nice ball in that Hubbuch fired past the keeper for a 2-0 lead.

Clinton County scored its lone goal just before half to cut the lead to 2-1.

The only goal in the second half came off a penalty kick in the 58th minute that House converted from the spot for the 3-1 lead. From there, the Cards held on for the win.

“I thought Zach (Allen) played well in goal tonight,” Hensley said. “And Austin Hayes had a great game.” Hensley also hopes this win gives her team a little momentum heading into tonight’s district tournament game against Corbin at 7:30 at North Laurel.

“They beat us 2-0 earlier in the season,” Hensley said. “Hopefully this win gives us momentum.”
