Lady Redhounds fall on the road

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

DANVILLE — Corbin coach Eric Steely knew his team would have some growing pains this season after graduating six starters from last year’s 15-5 squad.

The Lady Redhounds (1-2) have seen some, especially during their last two games, which have turned out to be losses, including Saturday’s 2-0 decision to Danville.

“We definitely looked better than in our loss (to Oneida, Tenn.),” Steely said. “We are just playing inconsistent right now. We’ve had some injuries, but we are making some progress.

“I knew coming into the season, we’d see this,” he added. “We lost six starters and I knew we’d have some games where we’d drop off a bit. We’re young right now, but we’re getting better — that’s a positive.”

Steely said there were many positives in the loss against the Lady Admirals, and he expects his team to continue to improve as the season progresses.

“We are organized, which is good,” he said. “We just need more time right now. For 10-15 minutes, we’ll look good, then we’ll drop off. We’re just inexperienced right now.

“We gave a whole lot more effort today and like I said, we were very organized,” Steely added. “We just have some spells that we drop off.”

Corbin will be back in action today on the road against Bourbon County.
