CASEY COUNTY — The Corbin Lady Redhounds hit the road for the first time this season Tuesday as they traveled to Casey County.

Despite outscoring the Lady Rebels by 10 points in the fourth quarter, Jason McDaniel’s squad suffered their second straight loss, falling to Casey County, 55-53.

Corbin fell behind early as the Lady Rebels jumped out to a 20-7 lead in the first quarter. After the loss McDaniel said his team’s slow start played a huge role in the early deficit, but gave credit for the late-game effort.

“We came out flat and it showed, especially on the defensive end,” McDaniel said. “The second half we made a great run due to our defensive effort.

“Now we must focus on playing disciplined offensively and defensively for four quarters,” he added. “I’m proud of our girls effort and character throughout the second half, but the hole we dug was too deep.”

Corbin played the Lady Rebels even in the second quarter, trailing 30-17 at halftime. Corbin then trimmed the gap by one in the third quarter, but still trailed 48-36 heading in to the final period of play.

Kayla Wilson scored 10 of her game-high 15 points in the final eight minutes of play, but it wasn’t enough to put the Lady Redhounds in front as they fell, 57-55.
