  • Bardstown speeds past Wildcats, 35-14


    The Henry County Wildcats hosted Bardstown Friday night and after a defensive first half that saw the game tied going into the locker room, the Tigers opened it up to win by three touchdowns.

    The Tigers started the game backed up to their own three-yard line by good kick coverage from the Wildcats. But they soon had pushed the ball out to midfield. After an interference penalty on the Wildcats gave the Tigers a first down at the HCHS 32, the Tigers stalled as a holding penalty backed them up.
