LOG MOUNTAIN — Bell County’s Maci Morris continues to show she’s one of the best players in the 13th Region by recording a triple-double (17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists) during the Lady Bobcats’ 78-45 win over Corbin Monday.
The two teams met last week at Corbin with the Lady Bobcats coming away with a 75-55 win.
Bell County jumped out to a 21-11 lead at the end of the first quarter, but Corbin rallied back in the second quarter and outscored the Lady Bobcats and only trailed 34-28 at halftime.
“I thought we played well in the first half,” Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons said. “It wasn’t bad. I thought our effort was great and we rebounded the ball well.”
But things went south in the second half for the Lady Redhounds.
The Lady Bobcats took advantage of misfired hurried shots from Corbin and led 54-38 with eight minutes remaining in the game.
Bell County put the game away by outscoring Corbin 24-7 during the fourth quarter.
“It’s a disappointing loss, of course, and it shows we’re not where we need to be at the present time,” Parsons said. “Bell County is playing really well right now and you have to give them credit.
“We just took some hurried shots in the second half and they took advantage and the next thing you know, they’re ahead by 15 points,” she added. “We need to regroup and get where we need to be.”
Bell County 78, Corbin 45
Corbin 11 17 10 7 45
Bell County 21 13 20 24 78
Corbin (45) — Ashurst 2, Me. Wilson 2, Mi. Wilson 4, Disney 1, Ashley 15, Barton 1, K. Wilson 14, Gallagher 3, Fothergill 3.
Bell County (78) — Sanders 12, Garnett 18, Robbins 10, Smith 10, Morris 17, Collins 1, Howard 2, Collett 2, Johnson 6.

LIKE IT OR NOT: A few tips for fantasy draft day
As high school, college and pro football season approaches, so too does Fantasy Football draft day.
The Tri-County Sports Authority’s Dirty Dawgs, a 16-under travel baseball team, placed second in the high school division of the Stars and Stripes July Bash, which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend.
When it comes to having success, no team in the Tri-County has had more during the past 10 years than the South Laurel Lady Cardinals soccer program.
Second Time Around
When all is said and done after the 2014 high school soccer season, a lot of teams will measure their success by wins and losses.
THE WAY IT IS: The times, they are a changing
The times, they are a changing — especially in the Tri-County high school sports scene.
The Tri-County Sports Authority youth football league, which usually fields in the neighborhood of 200 players, is about to get a little more crowded this season.
THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
