Lady Hounds cruise past Williamsburg

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — The Corbin Lady Redhounds responded from a pair of weekend losses Monday, picking up a 13-3 win over 50th District foe Williamsburg on the road.

The win is key for Corbin as it tries to keep pace with South Laurel in the race for the district’s top seed. The two teams will face off this week for the first time this season.

After Monday’s win, Corbin coach Chris Hart said he was pleased with the way his squad came out and hit the ball throughout the lineup, tallying 15 hits in the win.

“It was a good for us to get a win under our belt, and it was a district win, so it’s a little more important,” Hart said. “We lost two games over the weekend, but we played some really good competition and we played well against those teams, so you really can’t get too upset about those losses.

“The girls played well today, but we weren’t on top of our game,” Hart added. “At the same time, you have to give this Williamsburg team credit because they played well today also.”

Corbin was led on the offensive side of things with three-hit efforts from Lindsey Barton (3-for-5) and Hannah Hart (3-for-4), while Kelley Farley, Katie Bernardo and Callie Schoolcraft each collected two hits each. Whitley Gatliff connected for just one hit, but it was a big one as she doubled in three runs in the second inning.

After giving up a run in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI single by Megan Lawson, the Lady Redhounds responded with a seven-run outburst in the second to grab a 7-1 lead.

After loading the bases with nobody out in the inning, Corbin tied the game up on an RBI single off the bat of Amber Allen that brought Gatliff in to score from third. Just when it looked like the Lady Yellow Jackets were out of the woods despite a bases loaded situation, the Lady Redhounds used a two-out rally to take a 7-1 lead by the end of the inning.

Williamsburg trimmed the gap to 7-3 in the bottom of the third on a two-run double by Marah Crusenberry, but the Lady Yellow Jackets couldn’t get any closer than four runs.

Hart’s squad erupted for six runs on five hits, to go along with a pair of Williamsburg errors, to extend its lead to 13-3 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning.

The Lady Yellow Jackets couldn’t mount any kind of offense in their half of the sixth inning and eventually fell, 13-3.

Corbin will have a chance to fine tune things today against Knox Central before traveling to South Laurel Thursday evening. Hart said his team has to be on its game if they expect to compete with the Lady Cardinals.

“After seeing South Laurel play this weekend, I really feel like they are the best team in the 13th Region,” Hart said. “We’re going to really have to be on our ‘A’ game to be able to have a chance at a win.”
