Hounds double up North Laurel, grab District crown with 6-3 win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — The Corbin Redhounds used a 6-3 victory to get past North Laurel in the 49th District Championship game, avenging last year’s loss in the same situation.

The Jaguars upset Corbin in the district finals last season, only to fall in the region championship game, but apparently Tulio Canineu took it upon himself to make sure that didn’t happen again, scoring five of Corbin’s six goals.

Corbin coach Armando Cima said if his team had the 2012 loss in the back of their minds heading into the game, it certainly didn’t show by their play on the field.

“Really, I didn’t think the guys even thought about it,” Cima said. “I think they were focused on the task at hand and what we needed to do in the match we were in.

“I feel like Monday’s (against South Laurel) was a wakeup call for our guys and they realized we can’t afford to let up,” he added. “It was important for us to get the win because we wanted to host the region tournament because you’d always rather play at home than on the road.”

Tulio Canineu wasted no time getting his team on the scoreboard, punching his first of five goals in with less than three minutes gone by in the match.

By the times the teams had played 15 minutes, Canineu had staked his team to a 3-0 lead with two more scores.

Corbin’s Dylan Brown pushed the gap to 4-0 with a goal at the 23:42 mark, but North Laurel was able to slow the momentum a bit when Keaton Kennedy scored on a penalty kick at the 13:52 mark to cut the lead to 4-1.

Less than two minutes later, Tulio Canineu struck again, this time on a penalty kick that pushed Corbin’s lead to 5-1 at halftime.

North Laurel came out fighting in the second half, using goals by Kennedy and Hunter Riley to trim Corbin’s lead to 5-3 with 12:00 to play in the match, but that was as close as the Jaguars could get.

Canineu closed out the scoring with 4:20 to play when he punched on in to give his team a 6-3 lead, securing the 49th District crown for the Redhounds.

Despite Tulio Canineu’s strong showing, Cima said he felt like the win was a total team effort. Still, he gave credit where credit was due.

“It wasn’t like it was the Tulio show because our guys were passing theball,” Cima said. “Tulio has the ability yo make the game look easy and he was very lively for us tonight.

“We had a few possessions where we passed the ball 15 or 16 times between six or seven guys, so our kids were moving the ball well and Tulio did a good job of finishing,” he added. “He’s very good at finding space around the goal and that’s what he did tonight.”
