A win Friday would clinch the 5th District’s top seed for Trigg County’s boys basketball team. A loss to Crittenden County would leave both teams with 4-1 district records and force a coin flip between the Wildcats and Rockets.

Trigg maintained its district undefeated streak Friday with a 68-64 win over Livingston Central. It was Trigg’s first game without senior starter Corbin Estes, who is expected to miss at least the next few weeks due to illness.

The ‘Cats fell behind 7-0 early in the first quarter but used a 34-9 run to take its largest lead of the night midway through the second quarter.

Livingston trimmed the gap to 37-29 at halftime. A basket by Tae Day put Trigg back up by double digits at 46-35, but the ‘Cats never led by more than eight points the rest of the way.

Livingston tied the score twice in the fourth quarter but couldn’t complete the comeback. Luke McKenzie converted a three-point play with 2:48 left.
