If Trigg County took Russellville by surprise with last season’s season-opening 34-12 win, don’t expect it to happen again.

That’s the mindset of Wildcat head coach Coby Lewis heading into the 2012 opener Friday with the Panthers (7:30 p.m. at Russellville).

Trigg completed its final season tuneup last Friday with scrimmage halves against host Murray and Union County. The ‘Cats tied Murray at one score apiece and topped Union County two scores to one.

“We’ll call it a win over Murray because we got our extra point and they didn’t,” Lewis said.

Trigg’s offense looked solid except for a somewhat sluggish night by the rushing attack. It was the defense, however, that looked strongest, especially in shutting down Union County’s running game.

“We moved the ball a lot better than we did a year ago against Murray,” Lewis said. “Their defense is still really, really good. We only scored once, but we basically stopped ourselves with penalties and a couple turnovers. We felt good about our ability to move the ball but not our ability to keep the ball.”
