Redhounds even record at 5-5 with win over Harlan

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Earlier in the week, Corbin head coach Steve Jewell said he felt like his team needed to come out and play well against Harlan to avoid backing in to the playoffs next week.

The Redhounds did exactly what he asked en route to a 42-13 win, despite the fact it took a few possessions for the Redhounds offense to get things going.

“We got things on track late in the first quarter and early into the second quarter after we sputtered a little bit to start,” Jewell said. “I think it was a lot to do with nerves and all the things that go with senior night with the kids being really high in that aspect.

“We had to settle down, but after that I felt like we blocked better and were able to move the ball well,” he added.

Neither team could get anything going offensively in the first quarter, but Corbin was able to get on the scoreboard with just over five minutes to play in the first half when Matt Jewell scored on a 19-yard run to put the Redhounds on top 6-0.

Corbin caught a break on the ensuing kickoff when the football deflected off the leg of a Harlan player and was recovered by the Redhounds on the 48-yard line.

Corbin took advantage of the opportunity, grinding out a 13-play, 4:30 drive, capped off with a one-yard touchdown by Josh Coppock to extend the lead to 14-0 at halftime.

After forcing Harlan to punt on the first possession of the second half, Corbin wasted no time getting the offense going as Matt Jewell broke free for a 75-yard touchdown to push the Redhounds’ lead to 21-0.

Harlan was forced to punt again, pinning Corbin on the 12-yard line, but the Redhounds responded with another successful possession. After an eight-play drive, Taylor Waddle connected with Grubb for a 27-yard touchdown strike with 2:44 to play in the third quarter to extend the lead to 28-0.

Harlan finally managed to get on the scoreboard with just over two minutes to play in the third quarter when Tanner Morris hit Eric Young for a 63-yard touchdown pass, trimming the gap to 28-6.

The Redhounds responded on their next defensive possession, forcing another Harlan punt, only this time Corbin made them pay. Grubb struck for his second touchdown of the night, scoring on a 72-yard punt return to push the lead back to 35-6.

Both teams were able to add one more score each as Tanner Powers scored on a 19-yard scamper to push the lead back to 42-6. A five-yard touchdown strike from Morris to Nathan Young accounted for the final score of 42-12, putting Corbin at the .500 mark for the first time since the second week of the season.

“This was one of our goals, to get back to the .500 mark and we were able to do that,” Jewell said. “Now, we want to spend next week getting prepared for a playoff game and try to win that.”
