  • Warriors finish strong

    The Eminence Warriors football team traveled to Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon to take on the Oyler Hatmakers and ran into a team facing similar circumstances.

    The Hatmakers were caught short-handed by a rash of injuries as the Warriors welcomed back their top running back Shelby Armstrong who had missed the last game and a half with a knee injury.

    The Warriors scored early and often as they racked up 30 first quarter points and then watched as their young teammates got some valuable varsity experience.

  • Wildcats fall to Spencer County...

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Taylorsville on Friday night to take on the Spencer County Bears who were honoring their seniors in the regular season finale for both teams and lost 19-0.

    The Wildcats found consistency on offense to be a problem. “We just couldn’t sustain any drives,” coach Jason Spencer said. “We haven’t had our full offensive backfield together much this year that makes it hard to get any consistency. With (quarterback) Brennen (Peniston) getting hurt in practice Tuesday it happened to us again.”
