Rough start

Redhounds tie, lose against East, West Jessamine in weekend pair

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WEST JESSAMINE — The start of the 2013 soccer season didn’t go quite as well as Corbin head coach Armando Cima hoped it would this past weekend at West Jessamine High School.

Cima’s Redhounds tied East Jessamine (1-1), but fell to West Jessamine, 7-1, in the Soccerama at West Jessamine High School, sending his squad to 1-1 on the young season.

After several solid preseason scrimmages and what he felt was a good showing on Saturday, Cima said he wasn’t very pleased with what he saw during Sunday’s match against the Colts.

“I had a really positive feeling after our first two scrimmages,” Cima said. “We played East Carter and did well and then we played our alumni game, which is always a tough game for a high school team because you’re playing against some of the best talent that’s ever come through the program, and we only lost by one goal.

“We played East Jessamine, which we heard was better than West Jessamine and played to a tie, so I was pleased after that,” he added. “We came out Sunday and they had one kid that we couldn’t deal with very well and he just really tore us up.”

Cima said the fact the team played on Sunday may have had something to do with the lackluster effort, but took solace in the fact that the player that gave the Redhounds so much trouble was most likely the best player on the field at the time.

“I think the kids may have played some Sundays during their club play, but that may have had something to do with our effort,” Cima said. “East Jessamine didn’t play as well in their other game Sunday, so fitness may have been a trend and the fact it was a very hot day.

“I thought we struggled defensively all over the field against West Jessamine, not just our backs,” he added. “I guess what might be supportive is that the most energetic person on the field is the one that gave us the most problems. I guess it’s just unfortunate that the most energetic person on the field was on the other team.”

Corbin will be back in action Thursday when the Redhounds host Whitley County for their first home match of the season, which is also the team’s district opener for 2013.

The Redhounds finished the 2012 season with a 3-0 mark in regular season district play, but fell to North Laurel in the championship game of the district tournament.
