MIDDLESBORO — The Corbin Lady Redhounds improved to 8-5 on the season after upending Middlesboro Tuesday, 59-35.
The Lady Redhounds did most of their damage in the first half, outscoring the Lady Yellow Jackets, 35-13, while wrapping up the win by outscoring Middlesboro 24-22 during the final two quarters of play.
“Middlesboro is playing without a couple of players due to injury, so they are young in a few spots,” Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons said. “However, we came out, I felt, where we left off this past weekend with intensity on both ends of the floor. I’m very pleased with our play at this point in the season.”
Miranda Wilson led Corbin with 11 points while Kayla Wilson added 10. The Lady Redhounds finished the game connecting on 23-of-51 shot attempts while Middlesboro hit only 11-of-38 shot attempts from the floor.
