CMS seventh grade team captures state championship

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

LEXINGTON — The Corbin Middle School seventh grade football team came into Sunday's state championship game against Bowling Green expecting a battle.

That's exactly what the Redhounds got for two quarters before eventually pulling away for the 28-6 win in the state finals.

Head coach Wendell Foley said before the game that any mistakes at all would cost either team and fortunately enough for him and his team, very few were made in the contest.

“Our kids did what we've done all year long,” Foley said. “We've won 15 football games this season by just going out and taking control of the game and that's what we did today.

“Our kids did a good job of executing and they made plays for us,” he added. “Bowling Green is a really nice team, but we kind of owed them one from 2008, so it was good to get the win.”

After both teams went scoreless for the first seven minutes, Corbin took the lead late in the second quarter and never looked back.

Corbin’s Devyn Sams put his team on the scoreboard when he found the end zone from 11 yards out, staking the Redhounds to a 6-0 lead at halftime.

The Redhounds wasted no time adding to the lead in the third quarter when Cameron Maguet broke free for a 50-yard touchdown run with 5:25 to play in the period. Corbin stretched the lead to 14-0 after Chase Estep caught a pass from Noah Taylor to complete the two-point conversion.

Maguet led the Redhounds with 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 10 carries in the game.

Corbin took advantage of good field position after a botched punt attempt by the Purples, scoring on just three plays (four-yard touchdown run by Maguet) to extend the lead to 22-0 with 1:16 to play in the third quarter.

The lead grew after Corbin caught the Purples off guard and successfully executed an onside kick at midfield. Grant Gibson scored from one yard out to cap the 49-yard drive, stretching the gap to 28-0 with 4:53 to play in the contest

Bowling Green managed to get on the scoreboard when Miles Smith caught a 13-yard touchdown pass, trimming the gap to 28-6.

Corbin ran the clock out after they recovered the Purples' onside kick attempt, giving Foley his third state title as a coach.

“There are 70-year-old men coaching that have never had the opportunity to even coach in one of these games,” Foley said. “This my third time winning it as a coach, so I consider myself extremely blessed.

“All of the credit goes to the players and coaches I've been surrounded by, because they're what makes these wins possible,” he added.
