A cheerleader was dropped during warm-ups, but no serious injury resulted.
The TCHS Black Hole student section cheered the Cats on as they had an exceptional first quarter. They took Crittenden by surprise. Crittenden County had beaten Trigg twice already in the regular season by 10 each game. Zach Wright hit a big three-point basket to open up the second quarter and the Cats took off. Rodney Davis ended the half with a huge crowd-pleasing three to send the Cats to the locker room with a comfortable 10-point lead, 32-22.
Crittenden’s Adam Hardin hit two threes to begin the second half of play, cutting the Wildcat lead down to four, just like that. “I didn’t think we were going to be able to stop him for a while. We needed to do something quick,” said Bradley Davis after the game. “So we put Rodney on him to contain him and that worked out.” Trigg attempted to run the clock out of the third quarter until a bad pass ended the play. Zach Wright got into foul trouble and went to the bench. The score was 42 all with 2:30 left in the game. Jonathon King hit a three to put Trigg up with 1:45 to go. Davis made a quick steal and rushed down the court to make an easy lay-up to make the score 47-45, Trigg. Gage Courtney from Crittenden County was called on a traveling violation with 37 seconds on the clock, and the rest is history. You could tell by the grin on King‚s face that he knew that the trophy was going back home to Cadiz. The final score read 50-47. An ecstatic Black Hole stormed the court and celebrated their third straight district title. Trigg already had one district trophy this year in football.
