    The Henry County Lady Cats and the Owen County Lady Rebels are making a habit of long, thrilling games.

    Last year the Lady Rebels defeated the Lady Cats 3-2 in the district championship game on a goal in overtime. In their previous regular season game Owen defeated Henry late by the same 3-2 margin.

  • Warriors sweep Cats

    The Eminence Warriors hosted Henry County on Sept. 24 and came away with a 3-0 victory, sweeping the Lady Cats in regular season play for the first time since 2005.
    The win gave Eminence a 6-0 record in the district, and with two matches to go against Owen County and Gallatin County, sealed the top seed in the district for the Warriors. The second, third and fourth seeds are up for grabs.
    The Lady Cats jumped out to a 6-2 lead in the first game, forcing the Warriors into an early timeout.

  • Eagles claw Cats 22-17

    In a fiercly contested game, the Henry County Wildcats fell to the North Bullitt Eagles, 22-17.

    The Cats held a 17-14 lead going into the fourth quarter, but the Eagles were threatening when the horn sounded to end the third.

    North Bullitt’s first play of the final period was a halfback pass that was good for the go-ahead, 20-yard touchdown on third-and-6. The two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving Henry County in position to win if they could get to the end zone one more time.

  • Warriors fall to KCD 41-12

    The Eminence Warriors were coming off two impressive performances when they hosted the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats for homecoming on Friday night.

    The Warriors couldn’t make it three in a row as the Bearcats jumped on them with their opening possession and had the game all but put away by halftime.

  • Wildcats squeak by Owen County 1-0; Fall to Gallatin County 2-0

    The Henry County Wildcat soccer team got their second district win of the season on Sept. 25, when they defeated the visiting Owen County Rebels, 1-0.

    It was the Cats first shutout of the season and the first since they beat the Rebels 1-0 in 2010.

    Coach Bobby Jameson was proud of his defense but also credited a strategic change.

  • Peyton wins NCKC title; Lady Cats take 2nd

    MacKenzie Peyton came from one down with three holes to play against Shelby Power of Owen County to win the individual title in the North Central Kentucky Conference golf tournament.

    Peyton pulled into a tie on the par-3 12th hole, at Fairview Golf Course in Wheatley, Sept. 24, that was her 16th hole of the day in the shotgun start format.

    Peyton’s tee shot came up just short of the green on a steep bank. Her chip shot settled just two feet from the hole and she made par. Power hit the green with her tee shot but three-putted for a bogey.
