CORBIN — Amerah Dixon recorded another hat trick by scoring three goals, as the Corbin Lady Redhounds remained undefeated at 5-0 after defeating Letcher Central Saturday, 7-1.
The game was closer than the final outcome, as Eric Steely’s squad only led 1-0 at halftime and actually saw Letcher Central tie the game at one apiece in the second half before reeling off six unanswered goals.
“It was a close game for a while,” Steely said. “When Letcher Central scored to tie the game, that’s what it took to wake my girls up.
“We got on a scoring spree and put the game away,” he added. “But we’ve got to become a better team at being more consistent executing. We need to do it all game long, not just in spurts.”
Dixon’s three goal led the Lady Redhounds with three goals while Whitney Baker, Taylor Rawlings, Kaitlyn Waddle and Morgan Boggs also scored in the win.
Steely admitted seeing six of the seven goals his team scored being assisted was a pleasant surprise to cap off the win.
Waddle led Corbin with two assists while Chaylee Haggard, Dixon, Baker and Boggs each had one apiece.
“That’s what I want to see more of,” he said.
