Redhounds knock off Pike Central 35-14

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin Redhound eighth grade team advanced to the Kentucky State Middle School playoffs regional title game with a 35-14 win Saturday over Pike County Central.

The Redhounds (11-1) got on the scoreboard early in the first quarter (a two-yard run by Tucker Jewell at the 6:19 mark) and never looked back during the 35-14 win.

Corbin racked up more than 200 yards rushing on the ground while Jaxon Stewart and A.J. Moore hooked up with a 21-yard touchdown during the contest.

“We didn’t know a whole lot about them, but we did know they had some good skilled athletes, but I thought, as usual, if we controlled the line of scrimmage we would be successful,” Corbin coach Brent Jackson said.

The Redhound offensive and defensive lines dominated the action throughout the game, as a 66-yard run with midway through the first quarter by Jewell set up a 14-yard touchdown run by Stewart with 3:51 remaining to make the score 14-0.

Stewart’s touchdown pass to Moore (whose interception during the first quarter in the endzone ended a Pike Central drive) increased the Redhound lead to 21-0 in the second quarter.

Drew Carter’s three-yard run with 32 seconds remaining in the first half gave Corbin a commanding 28-0 edge.

“I like the way we jumped out and played well early,” Jackson said. “We got after them and we kind of set the tone with that.”

Pike County Central managed to get on the scoreboard with 18 seconds left in the second quarter thanks to a kick-off return, but Corbin’s Dillon Brock raced 50-yards at the 2:42 mark in the third quarter to put the game out of reach. Pike County scored a touchdown with 36 seconds remaining in the game, but the damage had already been done, as the Redhounds wrapped up the 21-point victory.

“I guess if I had one drawback from this game, it’s that we have to keep coming,” Jackson said. “We’re going to have to face teams that are as big as us and as physical as us upfront and we’ve got to establish the line of scrimmage.

“I tell these guys That’s the main ingredient,” he added. “That opens everything else up. I preached to our kids that it’s one and done and they have to understand that. If we make this thing special and keep going, we’ve got to play every  play and you don’t want to look back and say, ‘what if.’”
