Hopkinsville scored the first six goals of the game and never looked back in posting an 8-2 win over Trigg County in girls’ soccer action Sept. 15 at the Complex.

Jackie Durbin scored four of Hoptown’s goals as the Lady Tigers peppered shots at the net all night, holding a 19-5 advantage in shots.

Cara Wimpy got Hopkinsville on the board 16 minutes into the game when she banged home a corner kick in front of the net for a 1-0 lead.

Durbin then went to work, scoring on a breakaway two minutes later and later scoring on a deflection in front of the net at the 30-minute mark for a 3-0 lead.

Meanwhile, Trigg County struggled to advance the ball down the field against the Hopkinsville defense and did not record their first shot until midway through the first half.

Hopkinsville (4-3) scored the first three goals of the second half in a seven-minute stretch, with Durbin knocking home two more and Lindsey Hayes adding her first goal of the night.

Trigg County got on the scoreboard in the 62nd minute when Laykn Brooks got clear in front of the net and scored her sixth goal of the season to cut the lead to 6-1.

However, Durbin answered less than a minute later on a breakaway to push the Hopkinsville lead back out to six at 7-1.

Lauren Wooten ended Hopkinsville’s scoring with a junk goal in the 69th minute.

Trigg’s final goal came when Trinity Wortham scored her first goal off a rebound with ten minutes left in the game.

Trigg County fell to 2-5-2 with the loss. The Lady Wildcats return to action Thursday at home against Webster County.

The Lady Wildcats played one of their better games of the season but had trouble mustering the offense they needed in a 4-2 loss to the Lady Greyhounds Sept. 13 in Reidland.

Henson and Leigh Ann Bailey each scored in the second half for Reidland, who held a commanding 37-11 advantage in shots.
