CORBIN — The Corbin Redhounds dropped their second game in a row after falling to Pulaski County Thursday, 4-3.
Pulaski County jumped out to a 1-0 lead, but saw Corbin tie the game at one apiece before taking control of the contest.
“I just think Pulaski County wanted it more than us,” Corbin coach Armando Cima said. “They played with a lot of energy and we just played flat.”
The Redhounds entered the week riding a five-game win streak while outscoring their opponents 22-3 during the process, but things have been a bit different this week.
Corbin is 2-0 and has been outscored 6-3.
“When you don’t come ready to play, you’re going to get beat,” Cima said. “In my opinion, Pulaski County is not as good as us, but they wanted it more than we did. We basically controlled the game for the first 10 minutes, then they scored and we were just kind of disjointed.”
Drew Cooney scored Corbin’s first goal of the game while Tulio Canineu scored the second goal. Cooney added another goal to lead the Redhounds with two for the game.
Cima’s squad will try to get back into the win column Saturday at home against Johnson Central. They will then hit the road for two games against Somerset and Garrard County.
