After a 6-1 loss to Hopkinsville last Tuesday in which Colten Bridges scored Trigg’s only goal, the Wildcats roared back with a 2-1 win over the Colonels on Thursday.
A goal by Blaine Alexander tied the game before halftime, and Alexander was fouled in the penalty box in the second half and converted the penalty kick to give Trigg its winning score.
“Christian County is good defensively, and they made it difficult for us,” Trigg head coach Josh Nichols said. “Our passing and movement improved in the second half, and that made the difference.”
Monday, Trigg had no trouble with Hopkins Central, winning 7-0. Alexander, Romaine Cunningham and Clark Adams each scored two goals, and Bridges added one. Alexander recorded three assists, earning him the school single-season record with 17. He is also tied for the single-season mark in goals with 30, along with Jared Stallons and T.C. Bush.
