TRIMBLE COUNTY — It’s been four years since the Corbin Redhounds started the season with a 3-0 record, but they did just that Friday by turning in a dominating effort against Trimble County.
The Redhounds scored during the game’s opening minutes and never looked back against the winless Raiders (0-3) while picking up a 55-6 win in the process.
Corbin scored just four plays into the game to take a 6-0 edge while Jake Coppock’s 46-yard touchdown run with 6:02 remaining in the first quarter gave the Redhounds a 14-0 edge.
Steve Jewell’s squad continued its dominance minutes later after forcing the Raiders to punt on its fourth possession.
Redhound quarterback Corey Taylor connected on two pass attempts during the two-play, 50-yard scoring drive, as his 31-yard touchdown pass to Cai Jackson increased Corbin’s lead to 20-0 with 3:15 left in the opening quarter.
Corbin added another touchdown at the end of the first quarter with Taylor Waddle breaking free and racing 72 yards to paydirt, extending his team’s lead to 26-0.
The Redhound defense held the Raiders on their ensuing offensive series, and scored a play later after Taylor and Jackson hooked up for the second time in the game, increasing Corbin’s lead to 33-0 with 11:44 remaining in the first half.
Trimble County continued to struggle on offense, and Corbin forced the Raiders into another punt, which eventually led to the Redhounds’ Tucker Jewell scoring from nine yards out, giving Corbin a commanding 40-0 lead with 5:53 left in the second quarter.
The Redhounds added another touchdown with 5:41 left in the third quarter, as Dillon Brock broke loose and scored on a 23-yard touchdown run, giving Corbin a 47-0 advantage.
Jewell’s squad added a safety on the Raiders’ next possession, padding its lead to 49-0. Corbin’s next score came on its next possession with :37 remaining in the third quarter to take a 55-0 edge.
Trimble County managed to score its lone touchdown with a 76-yard pass play with less than a minute left in regulation.
Corbin will be back in action Friday at home against Danville at 7:30 p.m. The Redhounds have outscored their opponents so far this season, 105-14.
