In Week 1 at Russellville, Trigg County’s defense played well but the offense and special teams struggled. In Week 2 against Todd County Central, the offense and defense stood tall while the special teams still had problems.

Friday, all three units put together strong efforts in the Wildcats’ 42-21 win over Crittenden County in the second game of the Kentucky Machine & Engineering David Sadler Bowl.

“We’ve told them we’re taking baby steps, and our schedule is built so that each week, that opponent is a little bit better than the one we played the week before, except for the Russellville game the first week,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said. “From this point, if we’ll continue to progress each week, we’ll be fine.”

Trigg recovered Crittenden’s onside kick attempt to start the game. The ‘Cats went three-and-out on offense, but David Wease’s punt backed the Rockets inside their own 5-yard line. Trigg lineman John McGee recovered a fumble on Crittenden’s first offensive snap, and Luke McKenzie ran the ball into the end zone two plays later to give Trigg a 7-0 lead.
