Second Half Woes

LCA outscores Redhounds, 14-0 during second half action

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — What a difference a week makes.

The Corbin Redhounds were able to stand up in the face of adversity last week against George Rogers Clark en route to a 14-13 victory, but week two’s match-up against Lexington Christian Academy was another story.

The Redhounds failed to capitalize on three separate occasions inside the red zone as they were handed a 21-14 loss in the Cumberland Falls Pigskin Classic Saturday.

“We just didn’t capitalize in the second half.” Jewell said. “We had the ball inside the 15-yard line three times and we were unable to punch it in.

“I felt like some of the kids kept plugging and some of them didn’t fight as hard as they did last week,” he added. “Last week we were able fight through it and this week we didn’t and I think that’s a maturity thing. I think as we start to mature as a football team, we’ll be able to overcome things like that.”

LCA struck first on its first drive as Dima Ballard hit Justin King for an 82-yard touchdown to put the Eagles on top 7-0 with just under four minutes gone by in the first quarter.

It took the Redhounds until 2:13 to play in the second quarter to find the end zone when Matt Jewell scored from one-yard out to tie things up at seven apiece after Austin O’neill recovered an LCA fumble at the 19-yard line.

O’neill came up big on the next defensive possession as well. After disrupting consecutive pass attempts, he intercepted Ballard at LCA’s 48-yard line, setting up a six-play drive that ended when Hunter Grubb caught a 28-yard pass from Taylor Waddle to put Corbin on top 14-7 at the half.

The Eagles came out firing in the second half though.

On their second drive out of the break, Ballard and King hooked up again, this time from 74-yards out to tie the game at 14 apiece with 8:14 to play in the third quarter.

Then, as if he hadn’t done enough, King intercepted a pass by Waddle, returning it 30 yards for a touchdown to put the Eagles on top for good, 21-14.

The Redhounds had plenty of chances to tie the game in the fourth quarter. On separate occasions, Corbin had first goal from the eight, and first and 10 from the Eagles 20-yard line, but couldn’t make the best of it.

After forcing LCA to punt with 1:20 to play in the game, penalties pushed the Redhounds back to first and 25 after an unsportsmanlike conduct. Corbin turned the ball over on downs with :42 to play and the Eagles took a knee to end things at 21-14.

In all, Corbin gained 116 yards on the ground on 48 carries, while passing for 103 on 7-of-16 pass attempts.

Corbin falls to 1-1 on the season and will pay a visit to Tates Creek Friday. The Commodores lost to Harlan County, 65-54, this past week.
