ELIZABETHTOWN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds continued to struggle over the weekend as they went 1-2 in the Lady Bulldog Classic at John Hardin High School.
The Lady Redhounds dropped losses to Mercer County (4-1) and Thomas Nelson (10-0), while picking up a 5-4 win over the host team, John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.
The two losses send the Lady Redhounds to 3-6 on the season, with wins over Grainger County, Tenn., Pulaski County and John Hardin.
As a team, Corbin has been outscored 38 to 22 on the season, giving an average of 4.2 goals per game. Offensively, Corbin has scored at a rate of just two goals per game.
Morgan Boggs tallied Corbin’s only goal against Mercer County, while Boggs (3), Kaitlyn Stidham (1) and Madalyn Thompson combined for the Lady Redhounds’ five goals in the win over John Hardin.
With six losses, things won’t get much easier for the Lady Redhounds as they face district foe Whitley County Wednesday at home, followed by a pair road games against Berea and North Laurel.
The Lady Redhounds will return home for a pair of matches against Model and Sayre, before hitting the road against Southwestern.
From that point, the Lady Redhounds will close out the regular season with three of their final four matches at home against Somerset, Perry Central and Lincoln County, with a road match against Montgomery Central set to follow the Somerset match.

The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets are partying like it's 1987! That was the last time the Jackets won a game in the 13th Region Tournament, and they ended the 27-year drought with a 47-44 win over the heavily-favored Knox Central Panthers on Thursday night.
Les Dixon's Daily Region Pick'Em
When it comes to picking region tournament games, it’s not an easy task to say the least. This is the most parity that I’ve ever seen in the 13th Region Boys and Girls Tournaments.
If Clay County’s play during the first game of the 13th Region Tournament is any indication of things to come, Robert Marcum’s squad could be well on its way of capturing their second straight 13th Region championship.
The Way it is
Since I’m picking Corbin to pull off the upset against Jackson County today, I figured I’d give my top five upsets dating back to 2005-06 when the 13th realigned and welcomed both North and South Laurel high schools to the mix.
Tony Pietrowski’s Corbin Redhounds have been favored during the past two first round 13th Region match-ups, and have been upset both times. Corbin is hoping things might change a bit this time around.
Barbourville will have hands full against Bell County today
Dinky Phipps’ Barbourville Tigers are looking for their first 13th Region Tournament win dating back to 2006’s tournament when they defeated Clay County in the regional semifinals.
Like It or Not
There’s an elephant in the room at this year’s 13th Region Tournament, and really in basketball in general, and I guess I’ll be the first one to point it out (publicly with my name attached to it).
Chris' Daily Region Pick'Em
With the first three days of opening round games in the books, I can honestly say I'm not surprised that I'm 4-2 overall when it comes to my pick'ems record.
You can never count out the Clay County Lady Tigers when it comes to the 13th Region Tournament.
