Corbin falls on the road to Richmond Model

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

RICHMOND — A goal by Richmond Model five minutes into its game against Corbin Saturday, put the Redhounds on their heels and they could never recover as the Patriots cruised to a 5-0 win.

The loss, Corbin’s second in a row, dropped the Redhounds’ record to 8-4-1 on the season. After starting the season with a 6-1-1 record, the Redhounds are 2-3 during their past five games while being outscored 9-1 during back-to-back losses to Model and Pulaski County.

“Model is a very good team,” Corbin coach Armando Cima said. “They have played some very good competition and they played with a lot of enthusiasm and energy.

“You kind of get put on your heels after surrendering a goal during the first five minutes,” he added. “We played well at times during the first half, but we still found ourselves behind 2-0.”

Model continued its offensive pressure during the second half and added three more goals to pick up the five-goal win.

“We started off behind and that’s a hard thing to overcome mentally,” Cima said. “We were hoping to build some things in the second half, but we just didn’t play well and they took advantage of that.

“When we play against teams like Western Hills and Richmond model, you want to be more competitive and hopefully have signs that you’re stepping forward, but we didn’t do that,” he added. “You really worry about that carrying over into you’re other games like the Pulaski County game we lost. Pulaski County has a good team, but it’s not a 4-1 game for us. It’s just something we have got to continue to work on.”

With three more games this week at home against Oneida Baptist, Berea and Lexington Christian, Cima is hoping his team can pick up the momentum it had just a couple of weeks ago.

“We’ve got to make the most of these games,” he admitted. “We still have good teams to play and we need to come into each game with confidence.”

Corbin will be back in action Tuesday at home against OBI at 7 p.m.
