CORBIN — Corbin coach Eric Steely was a bit concerned with the tinkering he did on both sides of the ball entering Saturday’s contest against Danville.
The concerns quickly fell to the wayside after the Lady Redhounds defeated the Lady Admirals with ease, 4-0.
Corbin improved to 7-2 on the season and captured its second win in a row during the process after going through a two-game skid the week before.
“The girls played fantastic,” Steely said. “I made some changes and was a bit worried making them going into our game against Danville, but we played great.”
Amerah Dixon led the way for Corbin with two goals while Whitney Baker and Morgan Boggs each scored a goal apiece in the win.
Steely admitted he is pleased with the way his team rebounded from their losses against both Lincoln County and South Laurel by winning against Somerset and Danville.
“That was an awful week, but maybe something we needed to get our girls refocused,” he said. “I know they have responded well. I believe it woke them up. I don’t like to lose, but sometimes a loss wakes your team up.”
Corbin will be back in action today against Bell County and will play Whitley County Thursday on the road.
“This week will give us a chance to continue to work on some things,” Steely said. “We just need to continue to play like we have the past couple of games.”
