  • Wildcats claw past Panthers

    With few exceptions, the Henry County Wildcats defense put on a clinic last week at Elizabethtown.

    The Cats traveled to Elizabethtown on Friday and came away with a 21-7 district win against the Panthers.

    The early going was tough for the Cats as E-town struck first at 10:12 into the game on a 52-yard touchdown run by Panther quarterback Josh Williams. Henry County head coach Jason Spencer said the touchdown was the result of two missed assignments. The extra-point attempt was good and the Panthers took an early 7-0 lead.

    It’s not because I have run out of opinions. That’ll never happen.

    It’s not because I’ve run out of embarrassing stories to tell on myself. Unfortunately that’ll never happen either.

  • Turnovers doom Warriors in 70-14...

    For 1.5 quarters the Eminence Warriors hung tough against the highly regarded Frankfort Panthers on Friday.

    But a late second quarter scoring spree by Frankfort doomed to the Warriors to their worst defeat of the season. The final score was 70-14.

    But with 2:43 left in the 2nd quarter Eminence trailed by 8 points at 22-14.

    A series of turnovers allowed the Panthers to score 27 points in just 2:42 and at halftime, what had been a competitive game became a rout as Frankfort went into the locker room leading 49-14.
