The Wildcats scored four times on their first six plays in building a 27-0 lead after the first quarter. Tayshaun Barker scored on a 54-yard run and caught a 63-yard pass from Cam Jordan in that opening quarter.
Jordan found Kion Thompson on a 46-yard scoring strike down the right sideline and added a 1-yard run. The latter touchdown came after a long punt return by Jaquellus Martin that saw him zig zag across the field before running out of gas and tackled at the 1-yard line.
Trigg added two scores in the second quarter. Jordan’s third touchdown pass of the night found Andrew Syester for 36 yards with 9:34 left in the frame.
The Wildcats scored their final touchdown of the half when Jordan found Josh Visingardi for a 14-yard gain. He fumbled as he turned up field, and Jakobe Bridges picked up the ball and ran it the final 25 yards for the score.
Up 40-0 at halftime, Trigg’s lone score in the second half came on a 33-yard run by Jacob Johnson in the third quarter. The second half was played with a running clock and two 10-minute quarters.
Ballard Memorial got on the board with 4:04 left in the game on a 28-yard run by Trevor Howard.
