    It wasn’t the wins they were hoping for, but the Henry County Ladycats came away with two ties last week as the soccer season enters its final weeks before the postseason starts Oct. 12.

    Henry took a 7-0 loss at Oldham County last Monday night, then tied Owen County on Wednesday and Kentucky Country Day on Thursday — both with 1-1 scores.

    Jon Kasten had to leave school after lunch due to health issues but his absence did little to slow down the Henry County Ladycats as they came away with a 2-0 win over cross-county rivals Eminence.

    Monday night’s matchup between the two high schools separated by just four miles went as expected with Henry never seriously challenged. The Lady Warriors hung with the Ladycats in the early portion of both games, but left Henry’s new gym with 25-14 and 25-15 losses in the best-of-three series. Henry improved its record to 9-4, while Eminence dropped to 1-9.
