    Shawnee could not move the ball on their next possession and Warriors took over on their 45-yard line.

    The Henry County Lady Cats remained undefeated in district play last week with a 3-0 win over Owen County Sept. 19 and another 10-0 defeat of Gallatin at home Thursday.

    Ten minutes into the contest Presley Crowe scored from long range with a shot just inside the near post.
