Wacky finish lets Trigg slip away

Crittnden was a bit frustrated with its narrow loss to Trigg County.
The game was tied in the closing minutes, but Trigg County pulled away 40-37 to take the Fifth District
Tournament championship from Crittenden County for the second straight season.

It was a close one from start to finish with neither team ever having more than a 7-point lead. Trigg actually led by a slight margin most of the way, but Crittenden County tied it down the wire.

Some missed shots and a timeout mistake were among the stumbling blocks CCHS had to overcome in the final seconds to get off a half-court desperation shot at the buzzer that just missed.

Both teams will qualify for next week's Second Region Tournament at Morganfield. See next week's printed edition of The Press for more on this exciting and highly-contested district championship matchup.
