Lady Cards get back on track

After falling 4-0 to Lafayette, South bounces back with 6-0 win over PC

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — SOMERSET—The South Laurel Lady Cardinals blanked the Lady

Maroons of Pulaski County on Tuesday night, 6-0.

“We went up against a very talented team who can score we just tried to play a defensive game,” stated Lady Maroons’ head coach John Follman. “My girls hung in there and I felt that they played a good game.”

The Lady Cardinals remained in control of the ball for majority of the game only allowing Pulaski to take a few shots.

“We moved the ball well and we possessed the ball for a lot of the game, Pulaski’s game plan was a defensive focus,” stated the Lady Cardinals’ coach Todd White. “Pulaski really wasn’t looking to attack offensively and they let us do what we wanted in the midfield which we weren’t used too.”

South Laurel was able to score their first goal about 10 minutes into the game coming from a corner kick. Kristen White was able to find a hole in the Lady Maroons’ penalty box.

The second goal came from Regan Rutledge who was assisted by White. At the half the Lady Maroons trailed  2-0.

“We had to adjust the way that we normally play because they just kept backing farther up and at first it was hard to score with that many people defending the goal,” continued coach White. “We made some adjustments in the second half and the girls finally started to understand what we were trying to get them to see.”

The third Lady Cardinal goal was scored by Karli Parker in the 60th minute of the game. With an assist from Lexie May, Parker was able to head the ball into the goal.

The fourth goal came shortly after, in the 64th minute, when Meredith McCowan hit the side of the goal post knocking the ball back into the goal.

The fifth goal came from Parker in the 73rd minute of the game when she was able to dribble past Pulaski’s defenders and get a good look at the goal. This was the Lady Cards’ fifth goal, and Parkers’ second.

South Laurel’s sixth and final goal also came from Parker in the last minute of the game. Parker was able to complete a hat trick for the game and now has 38 goals on the season to lead the state.

With the loss, Pulaski is now 5-6 on the season. The Lady Cardinals were back in action Thursday night when they played host to Lexington Christian on their home field. After adding the 6-0 win over Pulaski, South Laurel is now 10-2-1 on the season.
