CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

BEREA — Two familiar faces hooked up in Sunday’s third place game of the Berea Lady Pirate Invitational as 50th district rivals Corbin and South Laurel squared off against each other.

The two teams met just this past week with the Lady Redhounds winning in overtime, 59-52, but this time Corbin won in regulation, 48-35.

Miranda Wilson led the Lady Redhounds in scoring with 26 points on seven-of-nine shooting from the floor, as Corbin jumped out to a 21-8 lead in the first half and never looked back.

“I’m very proud of the way we have played throughout this tournament,” Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons said. “I feel like we have matured tremendously since our season has begun. We are making smart decisions on the offensive end and being very patient to get what we want out of the offense. Playing in tourneys like this, getting third place builds our confidence and proves why we are a contender for the 13th region.”

The Lady Redhounds finished the three-day event with a 3-1 record while South Laurel went 2-2.
