CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds cruised past visiting Williamsburg Tuesday, picking up a 69-28 win to improve to 17-6 on the season.
Jennifer Parsons’ squad has now won five straight and 9-of-10, dating back to late December.
After the win, Parsons said she felt like her team came out and did exactly what she asked, which was a huge key in the game.
“I felt like each player on our team came out ready to play,” Parsons said. “We had good intensity on both ends of the floor from the start.
“We had big plays from Brooklyn Ashurst throughout the game and Natalie Gallagher gave us great effort off the bench,” she added.
Corbin set the tone early on, jumping out to a 14-6 lead in the first four minutes of the game.
The Lady Redhounds used an 11-6 run to close the quarter, leading 25-12.
Corbin continued to push the pace in the second quarter, starting the period with a 13-0 run before another Lady Jacket timeout. Corbin scored eight of the final 10 points of the half to extend the lead to 46-19 at the break.
Williamsburg scored just one point in the third quarter, while a 10-8 fourth quarter effort increased Corbin’s lead to 69-28 as time expired, sending the Lady Redhounds to the win.

LIKE IT OR NOT: A few tips for fantasy draft day
As high school, college and pro football season approaches, so too does Fantasy Football draft day.
The Tri-County Sports Authority’s Dirty Dawgs, a 16-under travel baseball team, placed second in the high school division of the Stars and Stripes July Bash, which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend.
When it comes to having success, no team in the Tri-County has had more during the past 10 years than the South Laurel Lady Cardinals soccer program.
Second Time Around
When all is said and done after the 2014 high school soccer season, a lot of teams will measure their success by wins and losses.
THE WAY IT IS: The times, they are a changing
The times, they are a changing — especially in the Tri-County high school sports scene.
The Tri-County Sports Authority youth football league, which usually fields in the neighborhood of 200 players, is about to get a little more crowded this season.
THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
