WILLIAMSBURG — An early lead helped the Corbin 11-year-old All-Stars find a win on Wednesday night against the Knox County 11-year-old All-Stars, 18-5, in the District 4 Tournament.
The win will send the Corbin 11-year-old All-Stars to the semifinal round of the loser’s bracket in the district tournament.
“We cleaned up our errors a little better and continued to hit the ball which is always a plus,” said Corbin 11-year-old All-Stars Coach Danny Freeman. “Overall great team win but on to the next one.”
Corbin took an early lead after putting up six runs in the first inning that helped to keep them ahead in the game.
“We had some kids step up and pitch for us that don’t always get the chance and they performed great,” said Freeman. “Kaidan (Freeman) did his job when we asked him to.”
Freeman is hoping to see another solid effort from his team in today’s semifinal game.
The Corbin 11-year-old All-Stars will once again be facing South Laurel. South Laurel handed Corbin an 11-5 loss earlier in the tournament, as South Laurel was able to hold Corbin to only five hits in the game.
“Excited to get another shot at South but we have our work cut out for us,” he said. “We have to be mentally more prepared this time and I think we will be just fine.”
Game time is set for 6 p.m.
