Trigg County had possession last in a back-and-forth battle Friday but couldn’t score the tying or go-ahead points in a 40-37 loss at Fort Campbell.

The Wildcats (4-5, 1-3 in Class 3A 1st District) faced a 10-point deficit twice and led by four points two times but were unable to put together a last-minute scoring drive.

“Both teams made a lot of big plays throughout the course of the game,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said. “In the end, we just came up a little bit short.”

Trigg fell behind 6-0 four minutes into the game after a 20-yard pass from Jalen Williams to Jonathan Jethroe. The ‘Cats answered with a 24-yard field goal by Reagan Hyde early in the second quarter.

The Falcons pushed the lead to 12-3 on a kickoff return by Isaiah Washington before Trigg pulled a surprise on its next drive, bringing Tyreak Wilson to quarterback and moving Luke McKenzie to wide receiver, where he caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Wilson.
