    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Jeffersontown Thursday night to take on the Lady Chargers and came out with an 8-0 win after a slow start.

    “We had to try to navigate through Hurstbourne Lane traffic at rush hour which is near impossible,” Coach Shelby Pfeiffer said. “We arrived at 5:50 and the referees only gave us 15 minutes from the time we stepped off the bus. So, once again, we started shaky. But finally once we settled down the goals started coming.”

    “We started off on the wrong foot,” said Coach Paul McDowell. “We threw an interception on the first series and they returned it for a touchdown. Then we had two screen passes that were thrown behind the receiver and counted as fumbles and they recovered both of those and eventually scored off those turnovers.”
