Lady Redhounds continue dominance against 13th Region foes with win over South Laurel

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Though it ended in three straight sets, the Corbin Lady Redhounds had to earn Tuesday’s win over South Laurel.

With scores of 25-22, 25-22 and 25-20, both coaches agreed the two teams played almost even with Corbin coming out with a slight edge.

“It didn’t really feel like a 3-0 win because they played so well,” Corbin coach Liberty Roberts said. “They had played us really well this weekend in the Whitley County tournament, so we knew it was going to be a good match.

“I’m proud of the way our kids stayed in this match mentally and didn’t give in,” she added. “That third set, we could have let things go, but the girls wanted it more and it showed.”

South Laurel coach Fawn Greer said her team played well, but was outhustled in the end.

“Our big thing is we don’t hustle a lot,” Greer said. “We’ll have one person shanking and the other people are just standing there waiting because they automatically assume they’re going to make the pass, so they’re not ready.

“So we’ve got to work on making sure that they’re ready to recover the missed passes,” she added.

Though the Lady Redhounds led the entire first set, the score was close the whole way. Corbin did manage to grab a 8-3 lead early on before the Lady Cardinals closed the gap.

Roberts’ squad stretched the lead to 19-12 as the set wound down and after having the lead trimmed to one at 23-22, eventually put things away at 25-22 for the win.

The second set was similar, but the Lady Cardinals were able to grab the early 5-1 lead. Corbin trailed until it was able to take a brief lead at 12-10. South Laurel battled back to a 15-12 lead before the Lady Redhounds jumped ahead at 17-16. Corbin never looked back and won 25-22.

The two teams traded points in the early part of the third set, but Corbin took an 8-7 lead and held on from that point, earning the 25-20 win.

Vanessa Wiseman led the way for Corbin with 14 kills and seven blocks, while Brianna Shrout had eight digs in the match.

Corbin will be back in action Thursday when it hosts Jackson County.
