BOYLE COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - It was a roller coaster of emotions Friday night in round three of the Class 4A high school football playoffs as Boyle County, the reigning state champions, and Corbin, the Class 4A state runner-ups last season, rematched under similar weather conditions of cold rain as they did at Kroger Field in 2022.

The Rebels would score first in the game after they blocked a punt but efforts from quarterback Kade Elam and wide receiver Zander Curry put the Redhounds in the endzone to tie the game at seven with under a minute left in the first quarter.

Boyle County’s running back Montavin Quisenberry had himself a second quarter picking up a long run and a touchdown to give the Rebels the lead back 14-7. The Rebels stifled Corbin on their next possession, allowing the Boyle a chance to extend their lead to a two-score game. But, Curry would come in clutch for the Redhounds with an interception to hand the ball back to Corbin.

The Redhound’s possession afterward would finish in the endzone to tie the game at 14 heading into halftime.

In the second half, several penalties hurt Corbin’s chances to score despite a key defensive play made by Jacob Smith and the Redhound defensive line to stop the Rebels on 4th & goal, allowing the Redhounds a chance to potentially tie the game and push into overtime.

However, the Redhounds were unable to hit pay dirt in the fourth quarter and Boyle County would take a knee to win the game 21-14.

Corbin ends the season at 12-1.
