The Corbin Redhounds and Whitley County Colonels each picked up wins Monday as both took to the road to start the week.
Corbin took advantage of four goals by Tulio Canineu as it earned a 5-0 shutout win over Southwestern, while Whitley County earned a 6-1 win over Wayne County.
• Corbin 5, Southwestern 0
Corbin head coach Armando Cima said despite what the scoreboard showed, his team had to battle to get the win over Southwestern.
“I know it looks like we got an easy win, but we really had to play well,” Cima said. “I thought our kids did a good job and I felt like they were technically sound almost the entire game.
“Our kids never got frustrated at all and I think that’s big for us as a team,” he added. “It was a good win for our kids and I thought we played better than we have been.”
• Whitley Co. 6, Wayne County 1
Max Murray and Austin Cole tallied two goals each in the Colonels’ win, while Hunter Keltner and Cody Swafford added a goal each in the 6-1 victory.
Whitley County coach Jarrod Earnest said he was happy with the way his team executed Monday and said he feels like the Colonels are making progress toward improvement.
“This is our second straight win, so I think our kids are gaining some confidence,” Earnest said. “The guys come in and work hard every practice and it’s starting to show just how hard they work.

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.
