PADUCAH – In scrimmage action Saturday, Trigg County’s girls soccer team notched a 2-2 tie at Lone Oak.

The Lady Wildcats reached the deadlock thanks to goals by Kelsey Winn and Lauren Frazier.

Trigg lost 3-1 to the Purple Flash in a 2008 scrimmage.

Trigg head coach Christian Jarrett said his team looked solid against Lone Oak.

“I won’t say our defenders did a bad job, but we could be tighter,” Jarrett said. “Overall, I was pleased. I don’t want to jinx us, but I feel good about how the girls we have out there are working together.”

Jarrett focused on making sure the majority of the Lady Wildcats saw time on the pitch rather than focusing most of the playing time on starters. All but three freshman were on the field at some point in the scrimmage, Jarrett said.

“I wanted to give everyone a chance to see how they all work together,” Jarrett said. “When I put subs in, I had them change formations some, and they did that pretty well. I think they did a pretty good job, especially playing with girls they hadn’t played with much before.”

A miscommunication between coaches meant the junior varsity scrimmage was played with nine players on each side. That match ended in a scoreless tie.

Jarrett said the Lady ‘Cats will focus more on passing and finishing scoring opportunities as well as spending more time in intrasquad scrimmages to get a better feel for game action.

Trigg opens its 2009 season at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Paducah Tilghman, then will play at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Calloway County. Junior varsity and varsity teams will play both nights.
