    A strong defensive performance in the third quarter propelled the Henry County Wildcats to a 12-point victory over the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats in Louisville on Feb. 9.

    The Wildcats held the Bearcats to just two points in the period to take command of what had been a close game through the first two periods.

    The Wildcats led 13-11 after the opening period and increased the lead to seven points late in the second period.

    The Warriors’ defense was even stingier in the second period and they outscored the Bears 6-2 to lead 12-6 at halftime. Crawford, Madison Dockter and Lyndsay Craigmyle scored the Warriors’ baskets in the second period.

    The Grant County Braves came to New Castle on Feb. 3 and left with a 13-point win over the Henry County Wildcats that was closer than the final score indicated.

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Owenton to take on the Owen County Rebels Friday night having won seven of their last eight games and four straight district matchups.

    In the early going the Warriors hung with the Rebels who held a 12-10 lead midway through the first period. The Rebels caught fire at that point and went on a 21-0 run that gave them a 33-10 lead early in the second period.

    From that point, they cruised to a 85-51 win.

    The Carroll County Panthers used smothering defense and efficient offense to open up a 19-0 lead on the Warriors and cruised to a 47-23 win Saturday.

    The Warriors’ first basket came with 3:50 left in the second period on a 17-footer by Madison Dockter. Dockter got the Warriors’ only other basket of the first half on a put back. Carroll led at halftime 20-4.

    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Warsaw Friday night to take on the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats and fell victim to hot shooting from Autumn Bowen and Hannah Dossett.

    The Lady Cats put up a respectable 16 points in the first quarter but Bowen hit six of six 3-point attempts in the quarter to lead Gallatin to a 22-16 lead going into the second period. She finished with 20 points in the period and 28 points for the entire game.

  • Warriors steal past Panthers

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Carroll County Panthers Saturday night with a lot riding on the outcome of the game. The Warriors could clinch the number two seed for the district tournament with a win.

    But the team got bad news before the game even started when they found out that starter Justin Mitchell would have to miss the game with a knee injury. With Trevor Payton already sidelined, that meant Eminence would be playing with only 60 percent of their regular starting lineup.

  • Lady Cats down EHS

    sports@hclocal.com

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted their county rivals, the Eminence Warriors, Thursday night and came away with a 40-18 win but it wasn’t as easy as the score indicates.

    The Warriors came out hot and the Lady Cats were ice cold in the early going.

    The Warriors’ Kenya Vargas opened the scoring with a 3-pointer with 4:30 left in the opening period. Lyndsay Craigmyle followed with a 12-footer before Megan Payton hit one of two free throws for the Lady Cats with 3:15 left.

  • Wildcats end skid with two wins

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Warsaw on Jan. 27 to play Gallatin County in a game with huge implications for the seeding of the district tournament. If Henry County won, they would guarantee themselves a spot in the semifinals as either a two or three seed. That meant they could avoid being relegated to playing an extra game to get the finals.

    Unfortunately for the Wildcats, severe foul trouble ruined their plans to take control of the their own destiny as Gallatin County won 64-56.
