  • Cats fall as offense struggles

    The Henry County Wildcats are finding a familiar theme: good defense and a struggling offense equals valiant efforts in losing causes.

    The Wildcats again played tough against a bigger foe but could not hold on in the second half as the offense produced just 7 points one week after being shut out by 5A Shelby County.

    Sometimes Goliath wins.

    This time Goliath was 5A Bullitt Central who defeated the Cats 21-7.

    Bullitt Central got strong running from sophomore Trevor Carnell in the second half to control the ball and score.

    Demarcus Bailey leapt high against tight coverage in the end zone to snare a pass from Justin Mitchell for the 2-point conversion, sealing the victory with just over a minute left in the game. This after Bailey caught a 65-yard, 3rd-and-10 Mitchell pass to tie the game at 36.
