Corbin evens district record with blowout win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY CITY — The Corbin Redhounds started strong and never looked back Thursday as they scored 48 first-half points en route to the 64-6 win over McCreary Central.

Not only did the Redhounds score a lot of points, but they scored them in almost every possible way they could with a safety, a punt return for a touchdown and a fumble recovered and returned for a touchdown.

The Redhounds got the scoring started early on a 21-yard touchdown run by Matt Jewell to put his team on top 7-0.

On McCreary Central’s next possession, Corbin’s Dakota Robinson recovered a fumble and rumbled 28 yards to extend the Redhounds’ lead to 13-0 after a missed extra point attempt.

After forcing the Raiders to punt on their next possession, Matt Jewell returned the punt for a 60-yard score to put the Redhounds on top 22-0 with just over three minutes to play in the first quarter.

Despite the big lead, the Corbin defense wasn’t about to rest as Dylan Adams intercepted a pass and returned it to the three-yard line, setting up a three-yard run by Jake Coppock to extend Corbin’s lead to 28-0 at the end of the first quarter.

After another McCreary Central punt, the Redhounds added another first half touchdown thanks to a four-yard touchdown run by Brian Nantz extending Corbin’s lead to 35-0 with 10:38 to play in the first half.

Corbin was able to score on the final two possessions of the first half on a 27-yard run by William Reedy to push the lead to 42-0, then on a 25-yard quarterback keeper by backup quarterback Corey Taylor to give the Redhounds a 48-0 lead at the intermission.

The brief stop in play and a continuous clock didn’t slow the Corbin offensive attack down as Reedy started the second half with a bang with a 48-yard touchdown run to make the score 56-0 after Colby Cima made good on the two-point conversion.

Another McCreary Central fumble led to a three-yard touchdown run by Cima  and a two-point conversion by Caleb Parker to extend the lead to 64-0.

With the junior varsity team seeing the majority of the minutes at the end of the game, the Raiders were finally able to score on a 50-yard run by Tyler Longmire to make the final score 64-6 as time ran out before the Redhounds were able to get another possession.

The win improves Corbin to 3-4 overall and 1-1 in district play with a home showdown against Bell County looming next week.
