Lady Redhounds advance with 10-0 win over Middlesboro

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — It didn’t take Corbin long to earn a spot in the finals of the 13th Rehion Tournament. The Lady Redhounds blitzed 50th District champion Middlesboro in less than 42 minutes and won easily, 10-0.

“I thought we came out and got the job done,” Corbin coach Eric Steely said. “I thought our girls played very good tonight.”

Corbin (15-4-2) received four goals by Amerah Dixon, who now has 47 on the season while Whitney Baker added three, which now gives her 24.

Chaylee Haggard, Taylor Rawlings and Morgan Boggs also added goals in the win.

The Lady Redhounds will now face-off against rival South Laurel, who defeated Corbin last week in the 49th District finals, 3-0, and on 5-1 on Aug. 30.

The Lady Cardinals (12-6-1) advanced to the regional finals by picking up a 1-0 forfeit win against Bell County.

“For us to win, we’ve got to match their intensity,” Steely said. “We have to do that. We can’t let them score a goal early because South Laurel does a good job of scoring goals in bunches and then we get frustrated and get down. I give South Laurel credit, they are a very good team.

“Our girls have to be all in and play as a team and attack as a team,” he added. “South Laurel has dominated at times in the past and I believe it’s because we get nervous and it turns into a mental thing. The girls can beat South Laurel, but like I said, we’ve got to match their intensity. Even though South Laurel has played well against us in the past, you might think they might come in and overlook us, but they don’t. They come in very intense and we need to do the same.”
