Winning the 5th District Tournament championship wasn’t the only first for the 2013 Trigg County girls soccer team. The Lady Wildcats won its first-ever 2nd Region Tournament game last Tuesday at Madisonville-North Hopkins, topping Webster County 3-2, before ending their season with a 12-0 loss to Hopkinsville in the semifinal round.

Against Webster, Brittany Shafer scord two first-half goals for Trigg, and after the Lady Trojans scored early in the second half, Jaycie Sittig provided an insurance goal for the Lady ‘Cats on a free kick from 35 yards out.

“We were fortunate in winning district so we wouldn’t have to possibly draw Hopkinsville in the first round,” Trigg head coach Rosebud Hodges said. “I’m so proud of the way we played. They played as a team, played to feet, crossed the ball and did not stop in the second half, which has been the hardest thing for us.”

Hodges credited goalkeeper Natalie Crane for an excellent effort against Webster.
