The ‘Cats gave up an own goal in the first 5 minutes off of a Crittenden corner kick, but responded with a goal from Brooke Allen in the 10th minute to even the match at 1-1. Kelci Winn scored in the 18th minute from a Taylor Davis assist, and Abigail Torian tacked on another in the 38th minute to send Trigg in at half up 3-1.
Another own goal early in the second half put Crittenden within one at 3-2, but Taylor Davis responded in the 52nd minute with a goal from a corner kick ( Crittenden own goal ) to put the ‘Cats ahead 4-2. Crittenden forward Melisa Kirk tied the match with goals in the 58th and 75th minutes but Taylor Davis sealed the deal in the 80th minute with a goal from a direct kick 30 yards out as Trigg held on for a 5-4 victory.
“Crittenden came into the night tied for first place in the district and regional standings with an undefeated 3-0 record,” Trigg coach Mike Smith said. “They had only allowed 3 goals in three games and for us it was our first regional / district game. I challenged the kids to come out with a win and they did just that. This young Trigg group is consistently proving that any one who plays them is in for a tough, hard fought game. I'm glad that attitude and effort paid off this time with a win for the girls.
