  • Boys of summer...in the fall

     By Joe Yates

  • Warriors fall in first round

    A season marred by injuries is over for the Eminence Warriors, who fell to Bellevue 64-6 in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class A playoffs.

    Bellevue scored early and often in racking up 36 first-quarter points to put the game away early.

    The Warriors got on the scoreboard in the second quarter when DeMarcus Bailey ran it in from one yard out for the team’s only touchdown.

    A 45-yard pass from Jalen Dixie to Shelby Armstrong set up the touchdown run.

    Despite home-field advantage and giving their all, Henry County fell to Corbin, 24-10, in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class 3A playoffs.

    The Wildcats started strong and held a 10-3 advantage at halftime but could not keep the offense moving in the second half as Corbin rallied for the right to advance to the second round to play district rival Wayne County.
