  • Wildcats thump Elizabethtown 57-27

    It was the performance they’d been waiting for.

    Leading into their game against Elizabethtown, the Henry County Wildcats had won just a single game.  There were glimmers of smart play, including good defensive stands against Central High School. In an emotional game against Bullitt Central, the Wildcats won with heart and determination.

    Against Elizabethtown, they put everything together and ran away, quite literally, with a 57-27 win over the visiting Panthers.

  • Warriors fall to Frankfort, 40-12

    The unbeaten Warriors met their match.

    The Franklin High School Panthers came to town Friday, and were bigger — both in terms of numbers and sheer physical size — than the Warriors. And the Panthers handed Eminence its first loss, 40-12.

    Breaking their usual pattern of slow starts, Eminence got off to a quick one.
