Corbin’s running back tandem of Matt Jewell and Jake Coppock ran for more than 235 yards and scored four of the Redhounds’ five touchdowns in the 35-14 win against South Laurel High School.
Jewell gave credit to the offensive line for opening up the holes in the Cardinals’ defense for him to hit.
Defensive lineman Grant Grigsby scored the other Corbin touchdown in the second quarter when he intercepted a screen pass at the South Laurel 30-yard line and ran it back to the endzone.
With the win, the Redhounds improve to 2-3 on the year. They have a week off before returning to the field Sept. 28 against Wayne County.
Williamsburg scored the first 14 points of the game on touchdown passes from junior quarterback Dalton Sizemore to Skylar Griffith and Corey Shelton, but the Oneida Indians, ranked 8th in the Tennessee AP poll, stormed back to score the next 23 points.
Micah Purdie answered for the Yellow Jackets in the third quarter to pull Williamsburg within 23-20. The Yellow Jackets had a chance to win the game on the last play when Sizemore threw a 24-yard pass to Griffith who was downed at the three-yard line as time expired.
