Corbin rolls on the road

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

LIBERTY — The Corbin Redhounds needed a win to secure their district’s No. 3 seed and they did it in fine fashion by knocking off Casey County with ease, 57-22.

The Redhounds (4-5 overall, 2-2 in district play) entered the game with a two-game district losing streak, but scored less than two minutes into the game and never looked back against the outmatched Rebels.

Taylor Waddle’s 35-yard gain to open the first quarter set up the Redhounds’ first touchdown, as Matt Jewell reached paydirt from six-yards out to give his team a 7-0 edge at the 10:24 mark.

Corbin forced Casey County into two turnovers during its first two offensive possessions and cashed in on the second turnover, as Dakota Robinson picked up a fumble and scored from 16-yards out to give Corbin a 14-0 lead with 7:40 remaining in the first quarter.

Jewell got his team on the scoreboard again a couple of minutes later by breaking loose for a 45-yard touchdown run, as the Redhound lead increased to 21-0.

Corbin continued to dominate in the second quarter, as Jewell’s third touchdown of the game came from six-yards out on a second-and-goal situation to give Corbin a 28-0 lead with 10:08 left in the first half.

Casey County didn’t have an answer for Corbin’s running attack the entire game and it showed on the Redhounds’ ensuing possession, as Waddle found a hole and scored on a 38-yard touchdown run, increasing Corbin’s advantage to 35-0 in the second quarter (7:34).

Corey Taylor got into the scoring action in the second quarter for Corbin, as his 18-yard touchdown run with 3:56 remaining pushed the Redhounds’ lead to 42-0.

Casey County finally got on the scoreboard to open the third quarter, as tailback Alex Bowlin’s 35-yard touchdown run cut the Rebels’ deficit to 35 points (42-7).

But it didn’t take long for Steve Jewell’s squad to reach the endzone again, thanks to the running game. Jonathan Hubbard added a five-yard score at the 4:55 mark in the third quarter, extending Corbin’s lead to 49-7.

Bowlin added touchdown runs of 25-yards late in the third quarter and a 31-yarder in the fourth quarter, but the damage had already been done, as Joe Ledford’s touchdown run wrapped up the 35-point win for the Redhounds.

The win will set up a first round match-up of Corbin and LaRue County in two weeks, as the Hawks will host the Redhounds. LaRue County had a chance to win its respective district’s top seed, but fell short of defeating Louisville Central, losing 16-8.

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