  • Wildcats squeak by Holy Cross

    The Henry County Wildcat football team traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on the Holy Cross Cougars and came away with a hard-fought 15-13 win.

    The Wildcats racked up 289 yards of rushing offense but had only 15 points to show for it because of a rash of penalties that called several long runs back. Mason Fish had 238 of those rushing yards.

    After a scoreless first quarter in which the Cats moved the ball well but failed to get into the end zone, the Cougars scored first with their defense.
