    The Henry County Wildcats’ soccer team hosted the Carroll County Panthers Sept. 30 in the final regular season district matchup of the season. With the teams playing to a 1-1 draw that was decided on penalty kicks after overtime just a few nights before, the game promised to be an exciting matchup between the district’s two top teams.

    For 60 minutes it was just that as the Panthers got a lone goal midway through the first half in a game that was tight until then.
