The setback snapped a three-game win streak for the Wildcats. Trigg County, which entered the game with a lot of momentum on its side, had won three straight games following a less than ideal 0-3 start.
Christian County owned a 14-0 lead in the first half. David Wallace hauled in an 18-yard scoring pass from James for the first touchdown of the game for the Colonels in the first period. After leading 7-0 at the conclusion of the opening quarter, Christian County added to its lead in the second period when Bauer found the endzone on a four-yard run. Christian County carried a 14-0 lead into halftime.
Trigg County was held scoreless until the final quarter when Brandon Bridges broke free and scored on a three-yard run. John Reinick nailed the extra-point attempt for the Wildcats, pulling Trigg County to within a touchdown and a two-point conversion of host Christian County.
With his team leading 14-6, Anthony Buckner rounded out the Christian County scoring with a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Buckner scored with 1:58 remaining in the regular-season game.
Christian County improved to 7-1 after posting the win. Following the loss, Trigg County slipped to 3-4.
Trigg County will return to the gridiron at home Friday night versus Caldwell County in a key Class 2A, District 1 game.
The Wildcats have an additional road game remaining versus Fort Campbell Oct. 31. Trigg County is scheduled to host Fulton County on Nov. 7 in a regular-season finale.
