    This time the tables were turned.

    This time, the Henry County Ladycats found themselves behind the 8-ball in the third game of a match against their rivals.

  • Wildcats struggle at LaRue

    Heading into halftime against LaRue County, the Henry County Wildcats were tied up at 13-all.

    The Hawks came out of the break with guns blazing and marched the length of the field to score.

    “We played really well in the first half, and then the second half... we just didn’t have a very good second half,” head coach Jason Spencer said. “The second half, they come out, they marched down the field and scored.”

  • Slow start heats up at Bracken

    In its last three football games, Eminence High School has faced a fair amount of adversity.
    Primarily, that adversity has been the broken left hand of quarterback Bradley Foree. But the Warriors battled through that difficulty and built up a 6-0 record heading into last week’s game at Bracken County.

    A district contest, the Warriors knew their game against the Polar Bears would be tough. Bracken County was sitting on a 5-1 record, having lost only their season opener.
