High school football: Henry County 16, Shelby County 14: Wildcats hold off Rockets in Dairy Queen Bowl

It was a game only a night owl or Wildcat fan could love at Henry County High School Friday night.

As with many games across the state, lightening delays pushed the scheduled start time of the game between the Henry County Wildcats and the Shelby County Rockets back two hours.

When play finally got under way the Wildcats dominated play in the first half and then held on to win 16-14.
