Trigg was faced with two chances to end its skid Tuesday with home games against Allen County-Scottsville and Lone Oak in the Third Annual Kentucky Machine & Engineering Christmas Classic (results unavailable at press time). The Lady ‘Cats finish KME play at 6:10 p.m. Wednesday against Caldwell County.
After last Friday’s loss to Livingston Central, Trigg had a week off before returning to district action at Lyon County, where the Lady ‘Cats lost 55-35.
Trigg got off to a strong start, leading by as many as five points in the first quarter after Ashley Matlock’s three-point play capped a 7-0 run. From there, however, the Lady Lyons went on a 24-8 run and led 31-21 at halftime.
Trigg used a 5-0 spurt late in the third quarter to cut the gap to seven, but Lyon dominated the fourth quarter 20-7.
Matlock and Brooke Kearney each scored 10 points to lead the Lady ‘Cats. Le’Onzerrae Grubbs added seven, Alyssa Maxey scored five and Kristian Wortham had three.
Monday, Trigg was unable to overcome a slow start against Larue County and lost 63-40.
Matlock scored 11 to lead the Lady ‘Cats, and Maxey joined her in double figures with 10. Grubbs scored seven, while Kearney had six, Mallory Mize had four and Alyssa Stallons had two. (For complete stats, see page B3.)
After the KME, the Lady ‘Cats are scheduled to return to action Monday at McLean County in tournament play against Caverna. The result of that game will determine Trigg’s game time for Tuesday, and the Lady ‘Cats will play another game in that tournament next Wednesday.
