  • It's deja vu all over again for Lady Cats

     

    It was déjà vu all over again for the Lady Cats.

    In the first round of the 31st District soccer tournament, Henry County’s girls’ soccer team beat Carroll County on penalty kicks, a performance nearly identical to an early season match-up between the two.

    Then, last week, it happened again against Owen County.

    The Lady Rebels once again came from behind to defeat the Lady Cats 3-2 in double overtime with just 3:00 remaining before a penalty kick shootout would have decided the game.

  • Lady Cats earn regional berth

    The Henry County Lady Cats volleyball team shook off a season ending losing streak to play some of their best volleyball of the season downing the Owen County Lady Rebels 3-1 last week in the 31st District tournament at Carroll County.

    That set up a tournament championship match against the tournament hosts. But the Lady Panthers would not be denied the tournament championship, and bested the Lady Cats 3-0, in closely contested games.

  • Yellowjackets swarm Cats in 2nd half

    The Henry County football team hosted the Central Yellowjackets — ranked No. 2 in Class 3A — Friday night and gave the athletic team fits during a first half in which they played almost perfectly.

    The Wildcats came in with a ball control, run it for “three yards and a cloud of dust” philosophy on offense and a “stop the run and beat us with the pass” defensive scheme that worked for most of the first half.

  • Buzzer beater goes to Paris

    Early in the second half of their game against Paris, the Eminence Warriors were down 22-0.

    Then Eminence outpaced Paris 38-26. But a buzzer-beating touchdown pass foiled the Warriors, and Paris won the game 42-38. 

    Eminence took the lead in the game late on Brandon Mitchell’s third touchdown reception of the night with 1:01 left in the game.

  • Warriors beat Gallatin; fall to Carroll in 31st district tourney

    In the fourth game between Eminence and Carroll County in last week’s 31st District Tournament, it seemed as though the Warriors were headed for a district championship match.

    But their hopes were dashed. Carroll County fought back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Warriors 16-25, 22-25, 25-20, 26-24, 15-10.
