Trigg County 5, Greenwood 13
The late game Saturday started out slow but ended with Greenwood’s Gator chomping up the Wildcats 13-5. Grenwood got on the scoreboard early and often punching in four runs in the second inning. Jordan P’Pool started the game going three batters into the third inning before giving way to Jamie Guinn on the hill. The Wildcats were led on offense by Will Stagner, a man of many positions in this game, playing first base and right field. Tyler Greenman went 2-3 and took a walk from the Gator pitching staff. The hardest part of this game to take, according to Coach Jackie Sholar was, “the number of men left on base and the errors we made that cost us most of their runs.”
