Familiar Foes

Redhounds fall to region rival Clay County, 69-62, on the road

CORBIN — By Mark Hoskins / Special to the Times-Tribune

CLAY COUNTY — Tiger coach Robert Marcum said before the season started that transfer Jake Allen would be the difference maker on his team.

Little did he know how quickly his words would come to fruition as the 6-5 senior center led Clay to a 69-62 victory over 13th Region rival Corbin Tuesday night.

The Tigers entered the fourth quarter with a 48-46 lead and Allen went to work. In the opening minutes he recorded three blocked shots while playing with four fouls. He scored eight points to help his team run out to a 63-56 lead before fouling out with 1:40 left to play.

Coach Marcum said he was extremely pleased with Allen’s effort and hustle.

“Jake played very well in that fourth quarter, especially on the defensive end,” Marcum said. “He was really a difference maker tonight. He scored, played great defense and rebounded extremely well. You can’t ask for anything better than that.”

It was a battle all night long for the defending 13th Region champions as the young Redhounds gave the Tigers fits throughout the game.

Corbin opened the first quarter with a 10-7 lead and was beating Clay in every facet of the game.

The Redhounds extended their lead at 12-7 with a jumper by Kevin Goins. Goins was on fire all night as he tallied a game-high 29 points.

Clay put together a 7-0 run spurred by four points from Wes Wolfe and a Tyler McDaniel three-pointer to take their first lead at 14-12.

Redhound coach Tony Pietrowski was whistled for a technical with 4:02 left in the half and propelled the Tigers out to a 21-17 lead.

The motivation for his team worked as Goins scored nine points in four minutes to close the gap to 32-31 heading into the half.  Clay took the lead just seconds before the buzzer as freshman Trevor Sams hit a three-pointer from the corner.

McDaniel kept the Tigers in the game during the second period as he poured in 17 of his 23 total points.

The game plan in the third period was to limit McDaniel’s shots and it worked for Corbin as they held the junior guard to one field goal.

The Redhounds closed the gap to one several times early in the fourth quarter, but the Tigers expanded the lead out to 56-51 as Allen nailed a baseline jumper and extended the lead the remainder of the game.

Corbin was led by Kevin Goins’ 29 points, while Clay County was led by McDaniel with 23 points.
