  • Mud Cats swamp Waggener

    When the Henry County Wildcats took the field Friday night against Waggener, the field was still wet from earlier rains and the sky threatened still more.

    During the first half, the Cats dominated possession and field position while the rains held off. The Cats squandered two opportunities to break the game open. Their only score came on a Mason Fish 16-yard run with 7:12 left in the first quarter. Jacob Buckley’s extra point kick was good to make it 7-0.

  • Wildcats fall to Grant, Shelby...

    The Henry County Wildcat soccer team hosted Grant County Sept. 16 and fell to the Braves, 8-1.

    The Cats started slow and found themselves down 3-0 within the first 10 minutes of the game, when Grant County scored on a corner kick that got by a host of Wildcat defenders and was kicked in at the far post by an onrushing Grant County attacker.

    The Cats got a foothold in the game after that, and Gavin Jameson nearly got the first goal for the Cats with 26 minutes left in the half when the Braves’ goalie had to make a diving save to his right.

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ soccer team hosted Grant County on Sept. 16 and fell to the Lady Braves, 4-1.

    The Cats started on the front foot when Tierra Allison had a shot from five yards out but it went wide right.

    Two minutes later Grant County threatened with a breakaway shot that goalkeeper Sophie Hughes saved. But the Lady Braves kept the pressure on and scored at 32:55 on a free kick from just outside the penalty box to take the lead.

    At 26:35 Rachel Vegh let loose with a screamer from 30 yards out that was just wide.

  • Wildcats squeak by Holy Cross

    The Henry County Wildcat football team traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on the Holy Cross Cougars and came away with a hard-fought 15-13 win.

    The Wildcats racked up 289 yards of rushing offense but had only 15 points to show for it because of a rash of penalties that called several long runs back. Mason Fish had 238 of those rushing yards.

    After a scoreless first quarter in which the Cats moved the ball well but failed to get into the end zone, the Cougars scored first with their defense.

  • Cats net 1st win

    The Henry County Lady Cats came from behind to get their first win of the season against district opponent Gallatin County on Sept. 9.

    The Lady Cats who were disappointed with a draw against Jeffersontown last week despite having the majority of the possession and scoring chances, were ecstatic to get one in the win column.

    “It’s one of the best games we’ve had,” coach Brandi Stivers said. “We had good communication and teamwork. We had to work through the physicality of their team.”
