Nobody's perfect. At least not anymore.
After starting the season with a seven-match win streak, the Corbin Lady Redhounds stumbled for the first time this season in the form of a 6-2 road loss to Lincoln County.
Corbin coach Eric Steely held nothing back when describing his team's effort after the loss.
"This was one of the worst games I've ever been a part of," Steely said. "It was embarrassing for our program, for our fans and everyone involved.
"The girls put forth very little effort out there and it really showed on the scoreboard," he added. "There was a lot of standing around and a lot of just doing nothing as the match progressed."
Lincoln County took a 2-1 lead into halftime and after that, Steely said he felt like his team may be able to come out of the locker room and make a run. Was he ever wrong.
"I wish I knew what it was," Steely said. "Maybe we needed something like this to knock us down a notch or two, I'm not sure.
"I hope they can leave whatever it was on the field tonight and come back out and play like they are capable of playing," he added. "They got frustrated for the first time tonight and it really snowballed and made things worse for them. Soccer is a game that if you let that frustration affect your game, it's only going to hurt you."
