    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.

    The Tigers started the game backed up to their own three-yard line by good kick coverage from the Wildcats. But they soon had pushed the ball out to midfield. After an interference penalty on the Wildcats gave the Tigers a first down at the HCHS 32, the Tigers stalled as a holding penalty backed them up.
