  • Combatting the decline of local quail


    One hope I held for my time in the wide-open spaces of Henry County involved the possibility of hearing a familiar cry.

    It pleased and surprised me to no end to catch the whistled call of “Bob White! Bob White!” during a return visit to Olney, Ill., while showing my wife around where I used to live in the Prairie State.

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Carroll County Sept. 30 and came away with 3-0 victory despite a lackluster first half. The team also welcomed back top scorer Rachel Vegh from a two-week layoff due to injury. Vegh played sparingly as she works her way back from a knee injury but managed to score with 21:19 left in the game.

    The first half ended scoreless despite the fact that the Lady Cats possessed the ball for almost the entire 40-minute period but produced few clear-cut scoring chances.

    The Henry County Wildcats’ soccer team hosted the Carroll County Panthers Sept. 30 in the final regular season district matchup of the season. With the teams playing to a 1-1 draw that was decided on penalty kicks after overtime just a few nights before, the game promised to be an exciting matchup between the district’s two top teams.

    For 60 minutes it was just that as the Panthers got a lone goal midway through the first half in a game that was tight until then.

  • Raiders run past Warriors


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Trimble County Raiders on homecoming night Friday night hoping to get their first win of the season, but it was not to be as the Raiders scored 28 first half points to put the game away early.

    The first quarter was played fairly evenly as Eminence took the opening kick and got a big 17-yard run from Cameron Mathis on second and 14. A Raider defender was called for a 15-yard face mask penalty to put the Warriors in Trimble territory at the 44-yard line.
