BEREA — The Corbin Redhound soccer team bounced back from a 6-2 loss Monday by knocking off Estill County 3-0 in the Berea Cup.
The win improves the Redhounds to 7-2 and advances them to a Thursday match-up with the winner of today’s match between Berea and Somerset.
Corbin Coach Armando Cima said he was pleased with the way his team played, but said he still felt like they had some holdover from Monday’s loss.
“This was a good win for us, but we really didn’t play well, no doubt about it,” Cima said. “I think we were still reeling from the loss Monday and it showed.
“I think we got ourselves so amped up for that match that when we lost, it really stuck with us,” he added. “We got intimidated by them and the fact they were ranked 10th in the state.”
The Redhounds took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Andrew Webb and never looked back. Lucas Canineu scored twice to put the Redhounds ahead for good at 3-1.
Cima said despite the score, the Redhounds had trouble at times.
“Estill County gave us some problems at times because we didn’t play with a lot of energy,” he said. “In the end, we did enough to get the win.
“You want to be able to learn from every match and hopefully we can look at some film and learn something from the Western Hills match and be able to move on,” he added. “We’ll look back and see what kind of adjustments we need to make when we play a team like that again and hopefully we’ll play better if we do.”
