After playing through two scrimmages and seven regular-season games, Webster County finally enjoyed a bye week last week for fall break as the Trojans had this past Friday night off.
Webster County will now re-enter the fire of district play as the Trojans are slated to host Trigg County this Friday night.
The Wildcats raced out to a 4-0 start to the season and climbed to as high as 8th in Class 3-A in the AP poll, but Trigg has now dropped three straight games to Murray, Paducah Tilghman and Crittenden County by a combined total of 111 points. Crittenden is the one common team that both Trigg and Webster have played so far. The Rockets defeated the Wildcats 32-0 in Marion a couple weeks ago while also dealing the Trojans a 48-21 loss in Dixon the second week of the season.
Trigg County is led by sensational dual-threat quarterback Cameron Jordan. The Navy commit has passed for 940 yards and 12 touchdowns, and he is also the Wildcats' leading rusher with 464 yards and 12 scores as he has accounted for 24 of Trigg's 36 touchdowns this season.

Webster County is coming off a 45-10 loss at Union County to begin district play. The Trojans took an early 3-0 lead on a 27-yard field goal by Joel McCormick before the Braves rattled off 45 unanswered on the way to a 45-10 victory.
The main thing the Trojans need to emphasize and cut down on is turnovers. Webster has committed 18 turnovers in its four losses this season while only turning it over once in three wins. The Trojans must win the turnover battle to defeat Trigg and pick up their first district win since 2010.
Kickoff between the Trojans and Wildcats is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Trojan Field in Dixon. The game will be broadcast on 104.9 FM, pregame starting at 6:45.
