  • Warriors slay Wyverns

     

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the St. Francis Wyverns on Thursday night and came away with a 21-point win.

    The Warriors got out to a four-point lead at 17-13 in the first quarter and maintained it going into the locker room at halftime.

    “In the first half we missed a lot of layups,” Coach Chris Nethery said. “We should have been up by more.”

    The Warriors shot better in the second half and made some defensive adjustments that paid off as they pulled away from the Wyverns.

  • Lady Cats fall to Lady Wildcats

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats on Friday night just eight days after losing in Warsaw by 22 points. In that game the Lady Cats managed to stay close for a while before succumbing to Gallatin County’s pressure defense and deadly shooting. This time the Lady Cats showed improvement by hanging tough into the third period before a spate of turnovers allowed Gallatin to pull away for a tough, but comfortable, 56-41 win.

  • Wildcats fall to Gallatin, 61-53

    When the Henry County Wildcats hosted District 30 rivals Gallatin County on Jan. 28, poor free throw shooting by the host Wildcats was their ultimate downfall. Henry County hit just 10 of 25 free throws for 40 percent while the visiting Wildcats hit 24-32 for 75 percent.

    “We missed 15 free throws and lost by eight points,” Coach Enoch Welch said. That tells the whole story.”

  • Lady Cats defeat Warriors

    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Warsaw on Jan. 29 to take on the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats and fell 58-37. The Lady Cats trailed by just nine points at the break but a slow start in the third quarter sealed the game for Gallatin County.

    In the first period the Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 13-5 lead but Henry County came back in the second period and played them evenly. The Lady Wildcats were only able to add one point to their lead going into the locker room.

  • Third time not a charm for...

    The Eminence Warriors found themselves in an unusual situation when they hosted the Owen County Rebels on Jan. 29. The game was the third straight in which the Warriors and Rebels had faced off because of a scheduling fluke and bad weather.  The Rebels won a regular season matchup on Jan. 16 by a score of 57-44. They defeated the Warriors 72-71 in the first round of the All A Classic on Jan. 22 and then came back to Eminence after both teams lost games due to weather cancellations to play again a week later.

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Owen County Rebels on Jan. 22 in the first round of the All A Classic after losing to the Rebels just six days earlier in a similar scenario.

    Whether you attribute it to a hot start for the Rebels or a slow start for the Warriors, the first period of both games was the downfall for Eminence.

  • Dragons slay Wildcats

    After 11 days without a game due to the frigid, snowy weather, the South Oldham Dragons could not have been blamed if they had come into the Roy L. Winchester Gymnasium in New Castle on Friday night a little cold, but that was not the case. They lit up the Henry County Wildcats with hot shooting and tenacious defense in their 81-54 win.
