A Lawrence Lewis goal two minutes into the game followed by a Whitley County own goal about twenty minutes later was enough to give Corbin a 2-0 victory over 49th District rival Whitley County Monday, but the Redhounds had several opportunities to make that final score much more lopsided.
Some shots on goal simply missed their mark for Corbin Monday, but many shots were kept out of the net thanks to solid play from Colonel goal keeper Jarred Havens. Regardless, Redhounds Head Coach Armando Cima was not pleased with his team’s overall performance, saying they need to improve in several areas moving forward this season.
Despite the loss, Whitley County Head Coach Jarred Earnest was very encouraged by the fact that his squad was able to remain competitive from whistle to whistle against a team that has defeated them 5-0, 8-0 and 7-0 in their last three meetings.
With the win, Corbin improves to 3-1 on the year. They are scheduled to host the Southwestern Warriors this Thursday, September 1 at Corbin Primary.
Whitley, who fell to 1-3 Monday, was set to host another district rival in Oneida Baptist Institute Tuesday evening. They will be on the road at Wayne County Thursday.
