It took the Trigg County boys’ soccer team a while to get going, but 3 second half goals saw the Wildcats run out to a 4-0 victory over hosts Muhlenberg County on Tuesday night. The result is the second 4-goal win in two days for the Wildcats, with a meeting with Christian County at the Stadium of Champions scheduled for Thursday.
Cristian Llarena got Trigg County on the board in the 26th minute when he headed in a rebound off a shot by Will Jolly. With seconds remaining in the first half, Clayton Setliff drew a foul in the 18-yard box, but his penalty kick was saved by Mustang goalkeeper Tyson Shanks.
Jolly doubled the Wildcats’ lead 10 minutes into the second half when he scored on a free kick from about 25 yards out. With just over 6 minutes to play, Llarena set up Daniel Jimenez for a goal, before Anthony Ethridge rounded out the scoring off an assist from Jolly.
