    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Jeffersontown Chargers Aug. 24 and came away with a 1-1 draw despite dominating possession and getting off 19 shots in the game.

    The Wildcats’ defense, which has allowed numerous goals in the past three games, was also much improved as they allowed only one goal by the Chargers.

    But that goal, at 29:11 of the first half, looked like it might be enough to send the Wildcats to a fourth straight loss to open the season.
