  • Here we go again

    The Henry County boys and girls golf teams have already opened their seasons and next week the Eminence and Henry County volleyball, soccer and football teams open their seasons.

    Cross country will start the week after that.

    As I look at my master calendar of all 10 fall sports team schedules, I get a little overwhelmed at first but I also am excited to see what these teams have in store for us.

    The Kentucky Storm has had its share of tough losses this year. Earlier in the season they lost to the Kentucky Patriots by two points after leading most of the game. They lost two other games in overtime on either side of that loss to the Patriots.

    Going into their season finale against the Patriots in Somerset, the Storm needed a victory to have a chance to move up in the standings to a more favorable playoff position.

    They gave a valiant effort as they played shorthanded but eventually fell to the Patriots 7-6.

  • Storm Down Spartans


    After three consecutive close losses, the Kentucky Storm got back to winning ways Saturday as they defeated the visiting Kentucky Spartans at Bicknell Park in New Albany in a game that was closer than the final score indicated.

    The Storm got a huge break to open the game when the Spartans fumbled on their first play from scrimmage. But they couldn’t take advantage and the Spartans made them pay on their second possession.

    The Spartans drove down field and scored on a five-yard pass play to make it 6-0.
