    The Henry County Lady Cats soccer team played two games on back-to-back nights in the 31st district tournament last week because rain delayed their first round match against Owen County.

    The Lady Cats had to go into overtime to defeat the Lady Rebels, 3-2, on Oct. 14 and book their trip to the finals against Gallatin County the following night.

    The Lady Cats fell to the Lady Wildcats 3-2 to finish as runners up in the district for the second consecutive year.

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats and fell 55-6 after a second quarter scoring blitz from their oppoents.

    KCD took the opening drive and marched downfield to score on their first possession, burning five minutes off the clock in the process. They were helped by a couple of penalties on the Warriors in crucial third or fourth down situations.

    The Bearcats added another touchdown in the quarter to make it 14-0.

    The Henry County Wildcats used a facet of their game that they are not known for Friday night to defeat the visiting Moore Mustangs 30-0.

    Henry County’s first two scores came via 46-yard passes from Trevyn Spencer to Ethan Tuggle to give the Wildcats’ defense more cushion than they needed in a game that set Henry County up for a showdown with Central for a district championship.

    Henry County freshman golfer Maddie Hensley has been to the state tournament in Bowling Green for the past three years but has never been able to make it into the second round. This year Hensley met her goal for qualifying for a second day of golf when she shot an 80 on the first day.

    Hensley, who started on the tenth hole, opened with two pars to get off to a good start before running into trouble on the next three holes.

    A three-putt on 12, a short tee shot on 13 and a long approach shot on 14 led to three straight bogeys.
