Corbin hands Whitley County 6-2 loss

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds got an early scare from 50th District foe Whitley County during Tuesday’s 6-2 win, but head coach Chris Hart said it didn’t surprise him at all.

“The one thing we’ve learned is that you can throw the records out the window when it comes to Corbin and Whitley County softball games,” Hart said. “They always come ready to play us and today was no exception.

’This is a much-improved Whitley County team and they showed it by playing a very good game and my hat’s off to them for that,” he added. “Their starter, (Cody) Thacker, did an excellent job of using the outside part of the plate on us. We were able to get some runs and eventually get the win and that’s what you want in a district battle.”

Whitley County assistant coach David Halcomb was standing in for Amanda Moses, who was not in attendance due to illness. After the loss he said his team achieved a goal he set forth earlier in the day, which was to get something positive from the showdown, win or lose.

“We really wanted to come in and show that we could compete because the last time we played, it wasn’t much of a game,” Halcomb said. “Our kids did a good job, but we still have to realize the importance of not giving a team baserunners, because they eventually lead to runs.

“Overall, I thought we played a good game, but we have some work to do as the season comes to a close,” he added.

Corbin took an early 1-0 lead when an RBI double off the bat of Whitley Gatliff scored Lyndsey Barton from third.

Despite falling behind, Whitley County answered in the top of the second inning. Jaden Dopel and Brooke Hollingsworth started the inning with back-to-back singles and came around to score on a one-out single to center field by Hanna Logan to put the Lady Colonels on top, 2-1.

Corbin’s bats were silent until the bottom of the third when Callie Schoolcraft came through with an RBI single to score Kelley Farley, tying things up at two runs apiece.

The Lady Redhounds broke the tie in the bottom of the fifth inning when a bases-loaded single by Barton brought Katie Bernardo and Sydney Reynolds in to make the score 4-2.

Corbin added a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth when a two-run double by Reynolds brought Bernardo and Danielle Lipsteur, pushing the lead to 6-2.

Corbin’s Hannah Hart set the Lady Colonels down in order in the top of the seventh to seal the 6-2 win. The win locks up the No. 2 seed in the upcoming 50th District Tournament for the Lady Redhounds, where they’ll face third seeded Whitley County.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
