Joel Ben Thomas netted a pair of goals, and Blaine Alexander scored a goal and had an assist. Jeremy Butts also recorded a helper for the Wildcats (4-0-3).
Trigg head coach Josh Nichols said inconsistent play continues to be a problem for the Wildcats.
“It was the same story for us – 25 good minutes and then getting away from our game plan and not doing the things we need to do,” Nichols said. “The defense played well and didn’t allow any dangerous shots.”
Nichols said Reidland’s goal was a bit of a fluke, a shot from 25 yards that was misjudged by Trigg goalkeeper Kevin Latham.
“He thought it was going over and it just floated over his head,” Nichols said.
Colten Bridges suffered an ankle injury, and Aaron Yielding aggravated an existing groin injury. Nichols was uncertain if either would play in Tuesday’s game at St. Mary (results unavailable at press time). That contest started a stretch in which Trigg was scheduled for eight games in 16 days.
“We need everyone back healthy since we aren’t deep to begin with,” Nichols said. “It will be a rough stretch.”
In the junior varsity game Saturday, the Greyhounds topped Trigg 3-1. Nichols said the JV ‘Cats played better Saturday than they had in recent games. Ben Wigand scored Trigg’s goal.
