Trigg County earned three regular season victories over Livingston Central, but all three contests were close – 7-5, 2-1 and 6-2. Monday’s meeting between the Wildcats and Cardinals in the 5th District Tournament semifinals was no exception, and Trigg survived with a 7-6 win.

The win placed the ‘Cats in the district championship against top-seed Crittenden County. Rain prevented the game from being played Tuesday. TCHS head coach Tim Bush said they’d try to play Wednesday, but more rain is in the forecast and could cause further delays.

Trigg and Crittenden automatically advance to next week’s 2nd Region Tournament at Hopkins County Central. The brackets will be set this weekend, and the tournament will begin Monday.

Against Livingston, Trigg jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Nick Allen was hit by a pitch to lead off the frame, Ean Sholar Walked and Tyler Allen bunted the bases loaded. With one out, Tyler Estes was hit by a pitch to drive in the first run, and Ben Wigand cleared the bases with a double to the left field fence.
