    The Henry County Wildcats had a run of five close wins against Gallatin County going into the 31st District tournament Oct. 9. The Wildcats had two one-goal wins and three penalty-kick shootouts in those five wins.

    A sixth close win would have made the folks in Warsaw think there was some voodoo going on but it was not to be as the hosts defeated the Wildcats 2-0 to end their season in the first round.

    It was a typically defensive game between the two teams as neither could find the back of the net through halftime.

  • HCHS defeats Demons 1-0 in finale

     sports@hclocal.com

    The Henry County closed out the regular season Thursday night in the pouring rain with a 1-0 victory over the Williamstown Demons.

    Jacob Sanders scored from just outside the penalty box from the right side with a left-footed shot into the upper right corner of the goal with 23 minutes to play in the first half.

    With the weather deteriorating the Wildcats and Demons could hardly mount an attack as it became hard to see with rain pouring down so hard at times.
