Lady Redhounds rebound with 85-44 win over Middlesboro

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons/Staff Writer

CORBIN — Corbin Lady Redhounds coach Jennifer Parsons said after Thursday’s loss to Bell County that she was anxious to see how her team responded Friday.

After watching her team cruise to a 85-44 win over the Lady Yellow Jackets, Parsons said despite slow start, she was happy to see her team play the way she felt like they were capable of playing.

“It took us a little bit to get things going and I felt like there was a little carry over from last night, but we recovered eventually,” Parsons said. “I was very pleased with the way we played once we got things going and some of our shots started to fall.

“Defensively we were aggressive and back to the way we wanted to play defense,” she added. “All around good game tonight and I hope we can get this game and the momentum we gained over into tomorrow night’s game.”

After a slow start, Corbin took control to lead 20-8 after the first quarter of play as Miranda Wilson poured in eight of her game-high 18 points in the first eight minutes of play.

Middlesboro settled down in the second quarter and managed to play the Lady Redhounds even at 18 points apiece in the period, but still trailed 38-26 at halftime. Middlesboro seventh-grader Blair Green led the way in the second quarter with eight points for the Lady Yellow Jackets.

Corbin broke things open in the third quarter, outscoring their opponent 24-10, pushing the lead to 62-36 with one quarter left to play, but the period didn’t end quietly.

Middlesboro coach Elgie Green was ejected for arguing a call as time wound down and his team seemed to react in a negative way in the fourth quarter following the ejection.

Corbin scored early and often in the final period, forcing officials to keep a running clock in the final few minutes of the contest once the Lady Redhounds led 78-43.

Corbin closed the game out on a 16-4 run to end things at 85-44.

The win sends the Lady Redhounds to 2-1 on the season as they get set to face Parry County Central tonight in the finale of the Cumberland Falls Invitational Tournament.

Parsons said she knows her team will have its work cut out if they expect to get the win against the Lady Commodores.

“They have a really strong post presence and that’s something we haven’t seen a lot of,” Parsons said. “I said before the tournament started that we wanted to play the good teams to make ourselves better and that’s what a game against a team like Perry Central can do for you.”

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
