It took two days to play, but the outcome remained the same at the end of both days – Caldwell County had scored more than Trigg County.

The Wildcats fell to Caldwell 4-2 in the Fourth District Tournament at Princeton in a contest suspended due to lightning.

Play was halted with 25 minutes left in the game Oct. 18 and Caldwell County leading 3-1. The teams picked up where they left off Tuesday evening, and Caldwell was able to pick up the win.

The delay was the second of the game, with a short pause occurring ten minutes into the game.

By that time, Caldwell County had raced out to a 2-0 lead behind goals from Josh Morris and Jordan Singleton.

The Tigers went ahead 3-0 when Nathan Wurts scored off a penalty kick with 18 minutes left the first half.

The Wildcats had a couple of chances to score in the waning minutes of the half but trailed 3-0 at the intermission.

Nick Woodruff got the Wildcats on the board 13 minutes into the second half when his shot found the left corner of the goal.

Two minutes later, the game was suspended until the next day.

When play resumed, Woodruff scored his second goal of the game and 18th of the season on a penalty kick. That score drew the Wildcats to within 3-2 with just three minutes left.

But Caldwell answered quickly when Morris tallied his second goal of the game to push the margin back to two goals.

Brent Wietting made seven saves in goal for the Wildcats, who were outshot 21-12 by the Tigers.

Trigg County’s season ends with a 5-7-2 record, the most wins for the soccer program in three years.

Caldwell County (10-4-3) advanced to the district title game where they lost to Lyon County (16-3) 5-1.
