  • Wildcats fall to Spencer County...

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Taylorsville on Friday night to take on the Spencer County Bears who were honoring their seniors in the regular season finale for both teams and lost 19-0.

    The Wildcats found consistency on offense to be a problem. “We just couldn’t sustain any drives,” coach Jason Spencer said. “We haven’t had our full offensive backfield together much this year that makes it hard to get any consistency. With (quarterback) Brennen (Peniston) getting hurt in practice Tuesday it happened to us again.”
