BEECHWOOD -- For the first time in four years, Justin Haddix's Corbin Redhounds have dropped consecutive games.

The Redhounds (2-2) had hopes of rebounding from Week Three's loss to Pulaski County during Friday's game against Beechwood, but the Redhound offense could never get on track.

The Tigers were able to build a 13-0 lead and never looked back during their 26-10 win over Corbin.

The Redhounds' streak of 52 games of at least scoring a touchdown was in jeopardy until the game's final four minutes when they were finally able to reach the end zone.

Corbin has a bye week this upcoming week and will try to snap its losing skid on Friday, Sept. 27 when Bowling Green pays a visit.

"It was a tough loss. We had another slow start, and it's hard to come back when we are keeping our defense on the field and can't come up with anything offensively. But that's on me, so we will make a few changes and get back to work.

"We've got to get back to the drawing board," Haddix said. "We knew when we scheduled these teams it wasn't going to be easy. Beechwood is a good football team," he added. "They were playing their first game at home and they might have been 0-2, but they're a quality team. Now we've got to get back to work because we've got one of the state's best teams in Bowling Green going to come pay a visit to Campbell Field."

Beechwood took advantage of a sputtering Corbin offensive attack in the first quarter and built a 13-0 lead.

Quarterback Cameron Hergott threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to Mason Wilkins to give the Tigers an early 7-0 advantage with 9:59 remaining in the opening quarter of play.

Beechwood was able to add a rushing touchdown to its resume during its second offensive series.

Cole Stammer was able to find pay dirt for the first time this season after breaking away for a 33-yard touchdown run to push the Tigers' lead to 13-0 with 7:45 remaining.

Neither teams' offenses were able to get much going in the second quarter.

Jacob Baker's 27-yard field goal cut the Redhounds' deficit to 13-3 with 5:45 remaining in the first half, but Beechwood's Colin Graman answered with a 22-yard field goal at the end of the half to give the Tigers a 16-3 edge at halftime.

The 13-point deficit marked the fourth consecutive game Haddix's squad has trailed at halftime.

Beechwood was able to add to its lead during the third quarter after Graman's 37-yard field goal increased their lead to 19-3 at the 8:02 mark.

The Tigers began to pull away toward the end of the third quarter as Mitchell Corts' two-yard touchdown run gave Beechwood a commanding 26-3 advantage going into the fourth quarter.

Corbin's lone touchdown of the game came with 4:05 remaining in the fourth quarter as Cameron Combs threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Jake Steely to make the score, 26-10.
