Trigg County was held to six points or less for the first time since Sept. 12 Friday night. The Wildcats, facing Class 5A member Christian County in an away game, struggled offensively. Trigg County found the endzone once and couldn’t muster much offensively versus the Colonels. Christian County prevailed for its sixth straight win, defeating the Wildcats 20-6.

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.

Kickoff for the Trigg County-Caldwell County game is set for 7:30 p.m.
