The Trigg County defense, led by Zach Adams, Ethan Sweno, Clark Adams, and Caleb Simmons, kept the area in front of the net clear from goalie Kevin Latham, who made seven saves in goal.
Christian County cut the lead in half when Mitch West scored his 45th goal of the season off a crossing pass with 9:45 left.
