CORBIN — Kaitlyn Waddle didn’t waste any time putting Corbin on top of Richmond Model during Wednesday’s game.
Waddle’s goal just a couple of minutes into the contest gave the Lady Redhounds a lead they would never relinquish, as Corbin cruised to an easy 5-0 win over the Lady Patriots.
Waddle led the way with three goals for Corbin, now 7-6 on the season while capturing its fourth straight win in the process.
Waddle now has 11 goals on the season for the Lady Redhounds while Morgan Boggs added her 20th by scoring a goal in the win.
“She’s irreplaceable,” Corbin coach Eric Steely said about Waddle. “She knows the game so well and she’s one of the most coachable kids I’ve seen.”
The shut out turned out to be Corbin’s second of the season, and first, since a 3-0 win over Pulaski County on Sept. 3.
“We’re playing better,” Steely said. “At the beginning of the season we had a lot of injuries and suffered some losses. But now we are winning some games, and we are healthier.
“We are still dealing with some injuries, but we are really playing better as a team,” he added. “Obviously, we have some tough games coming up and hopefully we can continue to play well and finish the season strong.”
Corbin will be back in action Friday at home at 6:30 p.m. against Sayre.
