  • Cats fight for 14-7 win

    Heat, a hostile environment and an ailing quarterback did not deter the Henry County Wildcats as they clawed their way to a hard-fought 14-7 win over the host Carroll County Panthers Friday night.
    The Wildcats played most of the game without the services of their starting quarterback Brennen Peniston who had been ill most of the week.
    “Brennen really tried to go but, bless his heart, he was just too sick,” said coach Jason Spencer. “Austin Hartsell stepped in and really did a good job leading the offense.”
