The area’s first cold, rainy night of the season happened to coincide with Friday’s Class 3A 1st District matchup, which the Wildcats lost 21-6 to Paducah Tilghman.
“A lot of people blame weather, but it was raining on both sides of the field,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said. “It may have hurt us more than it did them because they’re bigger and more physical and we want to throw the ball more.”
Lewis said Trigg’s performance Friday was probably its best of the season “except for about 60 seconds” in the second half when Tilghman took a 14-6 lead after a botched punt attempt and recovered a Wildcat fumble in the end zone on the ensuing kickoff to go ahead 21-6.
“Take those 60 seconds away and that’s about the best we’ve played in the two years I’ve been the coach here,” Lewis said. “We were very pleased with their effort and they way they responded. They never laid down, even when those 60 seconds happened.”
Lewis said the conversation at this weekend’s coaches meeting centered around those special teams errors and what they’ll do to correct them.
