  • 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

    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.
