“There were only three running plays that didn’t gain at least three yards for us,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said. “We did some good things, but we didn’t punt in the first half, and sometimes you wish you were punting because it means you’re not turning the ball over.”
The Wildcats gave the ball away five times in the first half and fell behind 27-0 before halftime. Trigg protected the ball well in the second half and put 15 points on the board on a 49-yard pass from Luke McKenzie to Maurice Powell and a 3-yard rum by Hakeem Tyler.
“We felt like we were going to be able to do some things if we could ever sustain a drive,” Lewis said. “If we could have settled down and played mistake-free football in the second half, we would have been alright.”
The ‘Cats entered the game knowing their defense would be tested by a North Bullitt offense that relies almost solely on the run, but Lewis said the Eagles spread Trigg out more than he expected.
“They did a good job of adjusting, but I still felt like we had a good chance of stopping them,” Lewis said.
