Weary Wildcats Slip Past Webster County 2-1

Playing their third game in four days, the Trigg County boys’ soccer team used two goals by Will Jolly to top visiting Webster County 2-1 on Thursday night.  The Wildcats move to 7-1 with a meeting with 5th-District foe Lyon County on Monday in Eddyville.  The Trojans fall to 1-4-1 overall.

The Wildcats seemed flat to start the match and the Trojans made them pay just three minutes in when Joel McCormick steered home Drew Jackson’s cross for an early 1-0 lead.

Trigg County evened things up with thirteen minutes left in the first half when Daniel Jimenez found Jolly at the top of the 18-yard box and he beat Webster goalkeeper Hayden Stone to the far post.

The Wildcats pushed for the winner throughout the second half, but looked to be headed for a draw with under five minutes left before Jolly struck again.  Clayton Setliff dribbled in on the right and hit Jolly with a through ball up the middle and he once again found the back of the net for the winner.

Matthew Smith made 3 saves to earn the win in goal, while Stone had 9 stops for the Trojans.
