    The Lady Panthers soccer team lost 9-0 to Henry County Sept. 26. Henry County scored its first three goals within the first eight minutes of the game, putting Carroll County in a hole quickly. The first came after a defender was beat in a foot chase; the second off a rebounded missed shot that clanged off the side post; and the third after a free kick on Carroll’s end of the field was intercepted. Head coach Josh Noble said it was these “silly mistakes” that gave Henry the early lead.
