ELKTON – The Trigg County Lady Cats had a three-game win streak snapped last Tuesday (Feb. 17) on the road at Todd County Central.

The Lady Rebels rolled, defeating visiting Trigg County 70-36.

The Lady Cats had posted back-to-back-to-back wins over Reidland, St. Mary and Caldwell County the week before.

Todd County Central carried a 37-15 lead into halftime.

Senior guard Shirley Case netted 12 points for the Lady Rebels. Senior forward Holly Simons added nine points for homestanding Todd County Central.

The slow start coupled with more than one cold shooting streak hindered Trigg County’s progress.
