Despite a hot-shooting second half by Livingston Central’s Austin Woodward, Trigg County notched its first 5th District win of the season Friday.

The Wildcats topped the Cardinals 75-63, weathering Woodward’s storm of five three-pointers in the second half, several of which were well-defended by the ‘Cats.

Joined with Trigg’s 90-53 win Monday over Fort Campbell and last Tuesday’s 83-77 win at Hopkins County Central, the ‘Cats were 5-0 entering Tuesday’s home game against district rival Lyon County (results unavailable at press time).

Against the Cardinals, Trigg led 40-27 at halftime and pushed the gap to 15 points before Woodward sparked a run that cut the deficit to 51-43. The ‘Cats opened the fourth-quarter with a 7-0 run – a three-point play and another basket by Corbin Estes and free throws by Luke McKenzie –to regain a double-digit advantage, but Woodward answered with back-to-back three-pointers. Livingston pulled within eight points later in the frame, but Estes, Cole Gardner, Tae Day and Demaria Nance pieced together a 10-2 run that put the game away.
