CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - It is a big time playoff showdown in Class 4A and in the Alice Lloyd College Mountain Top Ten on this week’s edition of the Appalachian Wireless Game of the Week. It’s our No. 7 team, the Letcher Central Cougars, traveling west to take on our top dog in the No. 1 Corbin Redhounds.

Letcher Central got the first touch, but after a three-and-out, Corbin is set up by a great punt return. That allows Cameron Combs, on his 100th carry of the season, to scamper for 10 yards for his 11th score of the season. 7-0 Redhounds.

On the very next Corbin possession, the handoff to Combs again, who breaks free for 56 yards and his 12th touchdown of the season. Quickly, 14-0 Corbin.

An interception of Jonah Little by Zander Curry helped setup wonderful field position for the Redhounds again, but a red zone fumble would give the ball back to Letcher Central.

In the second quarter, with Letcher Central backed up, Little threw his second interception, this time to Jeremiah Gilbert. That set up the Redhounds inside the red zone. After a Brody Wells touchdown run was called back on a hold, a screen from Kade Elam to Carter Stewart to make it a 21-0 lead for Corbin.

Late quarter, after a personal foul penalty against LCC, Cameron Combs gets another handoff for his fourth touchdown of the first half. He would also convert on the two-point conversion, making it 36-0, triggering a running clock just before the halftime break.

Corbin put the reserves in during the second half, which featured a running clock. They scored early in the third quarter to make it 42-0 and tacked one more on in the fourth quarter to make it 49-0, the final score.

Corbin improves to 12-0 and will move on to the Class 4A quarterfinals with the victory Friday night. Letcher Central will finish their season 8-4 and ranked 7th in the Alice Lloyd College Mountain Top Ten.
