Redhounds win region title in shootout

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

NORTH LAUREL — After a 2-0 loss to North Laurel in the 49th District finals last week, the Corbin Redhound soccer team had a shot at redemption Thursday as it faced the Jaguars in the region championship game.

Redemption is exactly what Armando Cima’s team got as they won 1-0 (2-0) after the match went to overtime and eventually, penalty kicks.

After the win, both coaches talked about the tough match-up.

“I expected a battle,” Cima said. “They have a good team and they play with heart.”

North Laurel coach Mark Acampa said he also expected a tough match, but admitted that he didn’t think the match would end the way it did.

“I thought we would be able to score a couple of goals. I was surprised it ended 0-0 and had to go to PK,” Acampa said. “I don’t think we played up to our potential tonight. Nerves maybe, playing for the region championship, a place we’ve never been before.”

After playing 80 minutes of regulation with nothing decided, another 10 minutes of overtime wasn’t enough time to crown a champion either.

That’s when the fun began.

In the shootout, Keaton Kennedy took the first shot for North Laurel. Kennedy’s shot sailed high to give Corbin a brief advantage, but the Redhounds were unable to take advantage with Wayne Logan missing wide left.

Blake Nantz also missed to the left for North Laurel, to bring up Tulio Canineu for Corbin. Canineu, the Offensive MVP of the district tournament, found the goal to the left of the keeper for a 1-0 lead.

Sam Marcum’s shot was blocked by Corbin keeper Chase Adkins, who would take home Defensive MVP honors for the tournament. Lucas Lay shot next for Corbin with Nick Herrmann making a stop for the Jaguars.

Nathan Carter tried to tie the score for North Laurel, but Adkins was there again for the block.

That brought up Corbin’s Jonathon Helton with a chance to end the marathon game, which he did with a solid kick.

Cima said he knew he needed to get his team fired up heading into the extra time, but added it wasn't that tough to do.

“All I told the boys was if you don’t go into these overtimes with confidence, then you’ve not been awake during this game,” he said. “I think we controlled the game and I think you have to look for things like that to build confidence on.”

Acampa gave credit to Corbin, but admitted it was a tough way to lose.

“When it comes to Pks it’s a coin toss. It could go either way. It seems like a terrible way to end a game,” Acampa said. “Hats off to Corbin though for the way they played tonight.”

    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.
