On Friday night, the Trenton Bulldogs host the Gallatin Bulldogs, with a year-old traveling trophy between the rival schools from the bordering Grundy County and Daviess County going to the winner.
Gallatin will be aiming to win the game for the second year in a row, having defeated THS a year ago, a victory that kept Trenton from winning the Grand River Conference outright (Trenton shared the title with Maysville).
Trenton is surging coming into the Week 9 battle this year, with back-to-back wins helping to boost THS to an overall record of 4-4, with a GRC record of 4-2. Gallatin is moving in the opposite direction, with a two-point loss to Putnam County last week dropping GHS to 4-2 in conference play, with back-to-back losses (Gallatin lost to GRC champion Princeton on September 29th).
The Key Club will be hosting the “Pink Out Game”, titled “Bulldogs are Tougher than Cancer and Stronger Together”. Fans are invited to wear pink to show support for the ongoing fight of those battling breast cancer, and support to those working to end the disease permanently. Funds raised from Friday night’s game will go directly to cancer research.
The Gallatin at Trenton “Battle of the Bulldogs” trophy game will be broadcast live on Hot Country Z 101.7, with a 7 o’clock kickoff from C.F. Russell Stadium. Pregame hits the air with “Football Frenzy” at 5:30 on Friday, October 13th. Gallatin and Trenton, with 4-2 league records, are tied for second place in the Grand River Conference, two games behind the conference champion Princeton Tigers.
