Lady Redhounds pick up district win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — After trailing 15-12 at the end of the first quarter, the Corbin Lady Redhounds took control of Friday's game and eventually cruised to a 78-41 win over Williamsburg.

It was the Wilson show for the Lady Redhounds as Miranda Wilson led the way with 23 points, while her sister Kayla and Melanie added 10.

After trailing at the end of the first quarter, Corbin took a 17-15 lead on back-to-back baskets by Miranda and Melanie Wilson to start the second period and never looked back.

The Lady Redhounds outscored Williamsburg 22-10 in the second period, grabbing a 34-25 lead at halftime.

A 21-4 run to start the third quarter for the Lady Redhounds put things out of reach as Corbin cruised the rest of the way.

After the win, Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons said she was pleased with the way her team recovered from the slow start in the first half, eventually executing on the offensive end as the game went on.

“Offensively, we struggled in the first half,” Parsons said. “We were forcing turnovers, but we weren't able to score off of them and it seemed like we were very flat.

“In the third quarter I thought we picked things up and we didn’t let them dictate the tempo,” she added. “We were able to score in transition and score off the turnovers, which allowed us to get into our offensive rhythm.”

That rhythm led the Lady Redhounds to a 60-30 lead as the fourth quarter got started, but the Lady Jackets refused to quit.

Williamsburg head coach Amber Ellis said she was happy with the way her team kept fighting, but said they can't expect to win playing like they did.

“I thought we played great in the first half and we were only down nine,” Ellis said. “It was like as they extended the lead you could almost see our kids deflate as far as confidence,” she added. “You have to be able to stay in the game and not lose confidence and keep fighting. This is a great Corbin team and I felt like we played with them for a little while, so we’ll try to build on that.”

Williamsburg’s Carissa Conlin led the way for Williamsburg with 16 points, while Kacie Brown added 11 for the Yellow Jackets.

Corbin will be back in action Monday when they travel to South Laurel, while Williamsburg will face Pineville in the 13th Region All "A" Tournament on Tuesday at home.
