    Henry County's football players will have a long time to think about the state playoffs this Friday night - four and a half hours to be exact.

    That's how long the bus ride is expected to take to reach Paducah, which is plenty of time to get the Wildcats mentally fired up for the Class 3A, third-round showdown against the Paducah Tilghman Blue Tornados. The Wildcats hope to survive the storm.

    In Henry County's first ever home field playoff game Friday night, the Wildcats surged out to a 20-0 lead during the first 13 minutes of play and fought off Western Hills for the 20-7 win.

    Henry's opening spark eventually fizzled out, but it was enough for the Wildcats to earn their first playoff win in school history, continue a six-game home winning streak and advance to second-round action.

    The Eminence Warriors' football season came to a screeching halt Friday night in the opening round of the state playoffs when they took a 54-6 loss to Frankfort High School. The lopsided game ended the Warriors' 2007 campaign at 6-6 and advanced the Panthers to second-round action against Trimble County this Friday night.

    Henry County came out fired up at Scott High School in both teams' season-ending games Friday night, outscoring the Eagles 10-0 during the first quarter and hanging on to a 17-14 lead at the half. But after the break, the Wildcats, the smallest team in Class 3A, wore down and Scott, a much larger 5A team, poured it on. The Eagles took the lead early in the third quarter and pulled away to a 42-24 senior night win.

    When Jesus Ramos crossed the finish line Saturday in the Class A, Region 2 Cross Country Championships, Eminence coach Scott McClamroch didnt tell his runner he had qualified for the State Cross Country Championships. Instead, he waited for the awards ceremony for the youngster to find out.

    Five weeks after Henry County defeated Western Hills, 40-22, the two Class 3A, District Four teams will be at it again. But this time, there will be a little more at stake.

  • Youngsters showing their stuff

    I don't want to get too far ahead of myself - I have a problem doing that at times - but thinking about the future Henry County High School and Eminence High School football teams make me grin a bit.

    And if you're a fan of either squad, it should make you smile, too.

  • Farmers, Crawford advance

    Henry County's cross country team was short on numbers Saturday in the Class 2A, Region 3 Championships in Goshen, but the Cats managed to qualify half of their runners for the Kentucky State Cross Country Championships the following weekend.

    Brittany Crawford, the lone Henry runner in the girls' varsity race, finished 12th to advance, while Larry Farmer finished 10th in the boys' varsity race and Travis Farmer finished 17th. Other Henry runners included Mike Beavin, who finished 33rd, Brandon Goodwin, 35th, and Timothy Ashby, 55th.
