    The Eminence Warrior volleyball team got off to a rough start in their home opener on Aug. 18 as they fell to the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats 2-0.

    Both teams struggled for consistency in the opening minutes of the first game and could not string together a significant run of points. The game seesawed back and forth until at 17-17 KCD put together 6-0 run to take a commanding lead.

    From there the warriors managed only one more point and KCD closed out a 25-18 win with a service ace.

    It was a game only a night owl or a Wildcat fan could love on Friday night at Henry County High School.

    As with many games across the state, lightening delays pushed the scheduled start time of the game between the Henry County Wildcats and the Shelby County Rockets back two hours.

    When play finally got under way the Wildcats dominated the first half and then held on to win 16-14.

    The Eminence Warriors’ game with Caverna on Friday night turned into a nightmare as the weather played havoc with the time schedule.

    “The heat was even worse down there than it was up here,” Coach Paul McDowell said. “The game was very stop-start because the officials had to put in several water breaks. Then the lightening hit and we had to stop play.”

    Caverna scored first on a long pass play to go up 6-0.

    The Henry County Lady Cat soccer team traveled to Taylorsville on Aug. 19 to open the 2014 season against the Spencer County Lady Bears and came away with a 2-1 victory over a team they had never beaten before.

    The home team scored a goal in the first half and went into halftime clinging to the narrow margin but the Lady Cats came out for the second half and opened up the Lady Bears for two goals.

    The Lady Cats made a lineup change at halftime due to an injury to defensive sweeper Justice Kirk.

    That made the Wildcats second game on Aug. 21 at district rival Gallatin County their first official game of the season. The Wildcats established themselves as district title contenders with a convincing 5-1 victory.
