After last Monday’s season-opening win over Paducah Tilghman, the Trigg County Lady Wildcats lost two straight games – 2-1 at St. Mary and 8-2 against Calloway County.

Trigg sophomore Lauren Frazier, last year’s school-record-setter, scored her first three goals of the season – all the Lady ‘Cat goals from those two games.

Monday against Calloway, the Lady ‘Cats mounted a comeback after falling behind 3-0. Two minutes after Calloway’s Paige Paschall scored her second goal of the night less than nine minutes into the second half, Frazier tallied her first on an assist by Amanda Want. Eight minutes later, Frazier received a sideline throw-in from Courtney Ellebroch and chipped a shot from the right corner of the goal box and over the reach of Calloway goalkeeper Devyn Poston.

Less than a minute later Trigg senior Brooklyn Thomas was within a foot of tying the score when she stole the ball in the Calloway zone and drove to the net. Two minutes after that chance, the Lady Lakers recovered and scored five unanswered goals.

Trigg head coach Salvador Lara said Calloway’s solid possession skills and Trigg failing to stick to their defensive system were Monday’s big problems for the Lady ‘Cats, as well as having several varsity players who also played many minutes in the 4-0 junior varsity loss.

“We got away from our game plan and were just chasing the ball and stabbing at it,” Lara said. “I have nine girls playing JV, and of those nine, seven basically played the whole JV game. It’s tough, and they were out of gas.”

Frazier also scored against St. Mary. Full stats from that game were unavailable.

Trigg returns to action with back-to-back 4th District games – Thursday at Caldwell County and Tuesday against Lyon County.
