The teams won alternating games in the match (25-17, 23-25, 25-17, 24-26, 15-10), which included the six-win Lady Rockets after they upset No. 2 seed Livingston Central 3-0 in Monday’s semifinal match.
Trigg had earned 2-0 and 3-0 wins over Crittenden during the regular season, but Lady Wildcat head coach Scott Hill said the Lady Rocket team Trigg faced on Monday beared little resemblence to what was seen in those early matchups.
“They showed what they can do,” Hill said. “My hat’s off to them. They played a great game. It was hard to get a lead because they were playing good and we had a lot of errors.”
Trigg never led by more than eight at any point in the match and Crittenden never by more than five. Trigg never trailed in the first or third games. The Lady ‘Cats came back from a five-point deficit in the second game to take an 18-17 lead but couldn’t hold the advantage.
