Trigg County hosts the Boys Second Region Soccer Tournament that begins tonight at the Complex.
Hopkinsville (15-1-6) and Caldwell County (7-12-2) meet in the 6pm opener. Hoptown won the first game between the two this season 6-3, but the teams battled to a 1-1 tie on Oct. 5. The Tigers last appeared in the region tournament in 2007 when they beat University Heights for the title.
Caldwell County is in the region tourney for the eighth straight year but have never advanced to the championship game.
The 8pm nightcap features two teams that have never won a region title, but have legitimate shots this year. Trigg County (20-0-1) meets Christian County (11-12). The teams met once on Sept. 30 with the Wildcats winning 2-1. Tonight's game will be the 22nd between the schools, with Trigg County owning a 10-8-3 advantage. Trigg hasn't lost to the Colonels since 1997.
The Wildcats are looking to bounce back quickly from Friday's district championship game victory that lasted 110 minutes and two shootout periods. The big key will be to contain Christian County's Mitch West, who has scored 44 goals in 20 games this year.
If Hopkinsville beats Caldwell County tonight, the championship game will be played Wednesday night at 6pm. If Caldwell wins, the title game will likely be moved to Thursday.
All games will be played at the Complex, with tickets five dollars each.
