Corbin tops North Laurel in semis, 4-2

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LONDON — Despite several obstacles, the Corbin Lady Redhounds were able to get past North Laurel by a score of 4-2 in the semifinals of 49th District Tournament Monday.

The win sends Corbin to a finals matchup against South Laurel Thursday.

Corbin coach Eric Steely said he was ecstatic with the way his team responded to several things that slowed the game down, including the loss of the Lady Redhounds’ goal keeper, Sydni Roaden.

Roaden had to be flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for what Steely said was a broken jaw and the loss of several teeth.

“I’ve never been more proud of a team I’ve coached than I am of my team tonight,” Steely said. “These girls did an excellent job of overcoming a lot of adversity in a game that it would have been very easy to quit.

“They fought through and played their hearts out and we were able to get the win,” he added.

Corbin took a 1-0 lead when Whitney Baker scored on an assist from Amerah Dixon with 20 minutes gone y in the first half.

Then, with about 5:37 to play in the half, Roaden collided with North Laurel’s Allison Blanton on Blanton’s shot attempt, sending Roaden off the field via ambulance.

Corbin’s Morgan Boggs scored quickly in the second half to put her team on top 2-0, but Blanton answered seven minutes later to trim the gap to 2-1.
