Corbin Lady Redhounds fall to Boyle County

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

The Corbin Lady Redhounds dropped their second game in as many nights, losing to the Boyle County Lady Rebels 3-2 in softball action.

It was the second straight game that the Lady Redhounds had their rally fall short in the last inning. This time, Corbin had players on base, down just one point, but couldn't finish the comeback.

"It's hard to say you're not disappointed when you lose, but I was proud of the way our team played tonight," said Corbin coach Chris Hart. "Boyle County is a very good team, a ranked team, and we had a runner on and a chance to win the game. I thought we played well tonight."

Boyle County got on the scoreboard first, as their leadoff hitter Lauren Richards reached base on a single and was brought home on the next at-bat. The Lady Rebels were up 1-0 after the first inning.

Corbin answered in the top of the second. Whitley Gatliff made her way to first base after being hit by a pitch, and a ground ball from Katie Bernardo allowed Gatliff to score, making the score 1-1.

Boyle County went on to score the next two runs to take a 3-1 lead. Mason slammed a double to left field and scored on a single from Conley, putting the Lady Rebels up 2-1 in the third. In the fifth inning, Richards walked and scored on an error, giving Boyle County their 3-1 lead.

"I actually thought our defense did a good job against a pretty good team. It was much better than we had been playing defensively," said Hart. "Holding a team to three runs will keep us in most games. I was happy with our effort."

The Lady Redhounds started the seventh inning off on the right foot. Bernardo reached base for the second time in the game and later scored on a passed ball, to cut the lead to 3-2. Amber Allen was able to reach second base, but was unable to score as the Lady Redhounds fell.

"Overall, it was a good game from us. I thought our pitching was great. Hannah (Hart) really hit her pitches," said Hart. "Bernardo played a great game for us, as well. We knew what she was capable of, and she did that for us tonight."

With the loss, Corbin falls to 2-6 on the year. They return to action Monday, hosting Somerset.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
