Redhounds hope for shot at redemption

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Despite dropping a 2-0 decision to North Laurel in the district finals last week, Corbin Redhounds soccer coach Armando Cima said he feels like his team is still the favorite to win the 13th Region.

Corbin was able to come away with a 5-4 win on Aug. 28, after the two teams went to a shootout to decide a winner. North Laurel used a pair of early goals in last week’s win to get past the Redhounds.

Cima said his team made some mistakes in the loss, but the best part is that they can give themselves a chance to make good on those mistakes.

“I still feel like we’ve got a very good team and a really solid team,” Cima said. “In my mind, and I don’t know how other coaches would feel, but in my mind I think we’re the favorite even though we lost in the district final.

“Even though it’s not as clear cut as I hoped it would be and think it should have been, but we can correct all of that,” he added. “I told the boys to look at it this week as their opportunity to correct that.”

Corbin finished the regular season with a 10-6 record heading into the postseason. The Redhounds knocked off Whitley County in a shootout to advance to the district finals.

The Jaguars have now won seven matches in a row, including wins over South Laurel and Corbin in the 49th District Tournament. North Laurel hasn’t lost a match since Sept. 20.

The Redhounds will face off against Oneida Baptist in today’s match, while North Laurel will face Middlesboro in their opening round match.

Cima said he is depending on his large group of seniors to step up and decide how they finish the season and their high school soccer careers.

“You don’t get many chances in life where it’s in your hands as to how you leave things,” he said. “It’s in their hands to finish this and if they want bad enough to be region champions, it’s there for them to take and that’s what they have to do."
