Trigg held its largest lead at 23-18 early in the second quarter, but the Lady Tigers used a 23-9 run to take a 41-32 lead late in the third quarter.
Hoptown maintained its nine-point advantage until midway through the fourth quarter when Trigg scored six straight points and cut the gap to 48-45 on a basket by Khadijah Grubbs with three minutes left. However, Trigg couldn’t sustain the comeback and never got closer than four points the rest of the way.
Grubbs scored a team-high 15 points, followed in double figures by Brooke Kearney with 12, all from three-point range.
That loss came a few days after the Lady ‘Cats fell to Todd County Central 59-54.
Much like the Hopkinsville game, Trigg led by four points early and fell behind by 10 midway through the third quarter before a 9-0 run left Todd with a 41-40 lead to start the fourth quarter. Trigg stayed within three points until a 9-2 Lady Rebel stretch put the game out of reach.
Ashley Matlock scored 19 points to lead the Lady ‘Cats and was the only Trigg player to score in double figures.
Those were the final two home games in the high school career of lone 2010 senior Audrey Futrell, who scored six points and recorded three steals against Todd and had five points and five assists against Hopkinsville.
Trigg looked to continue its season Tuesday in the 5th District Tournament against Lyon County at Rocket Gym in Marion. Results were unavailable at press time. The winner plays in the championship game at 7 p.m. Friday.
