The next event was on Sunday, also at 191 Speedway. It was the 3rd Annual Wince Mayabb Memorial Race paying $4000 to win. The team had their sights on winning the event a second time. They won the 1st Annual Wince Mayabb Memorial in 2011. Derek set fast time in qualifying and won the Quick 6 Dash, put- ting him on the pole for the feature event. When they took the green flag, Derek would again take the lead and set a blazing pace, pulling away from the field for the first 32 laps of the event until a lapped car spun in front of the leader, colliding with the #38 car and giving him a flat tire. The Mike Swartz Racing Team worked hard and fast to pull the damage away from the tire while putting different tires on. Derek rejoined the field at the tail end and started picking cars off one at a time. When the checked flag flew, the team had to settle for a 4th place finish.

With it, thoughts can turn to au- tumn, falling leaves and cooler temperatures. Not only does Labor Day mark the end of summer, but it also means that our students enjoyed their first holiday of the school year. One can safely say, that many have already marked their calendars for the next one. Friday night was the first home football game of the 2013 season. A good crowd was on hand to watch the Bath Coun- ty Wildcats take on the West Carter Comets in an attempt to win their first game of the year. The 'Cats looked good on their first possession, marching down the field at a steady clip. Curren Shrout powered in from the nine yard line for the first score and the 'Cats led 7-0. The Com- ets matched the score on their first possession and the crowd settled in for a good contest between two evenly matched teams. Brandon Price displayed his athletic abil- ity, scoring the next two touchdowns for the Wild- cats. His first score of the game came from a thirty yard pass from DeKeiton Young. He took the hand- off from DeKeiton Young for a long score of 52 yards, giving the 'Cats a 19-13 lead. The 'Cats trailed at the half, which, due to a thirty-minute power outage, was much longer than anticipated.

Bath County returned to the win column follow- ing a loss to St. Patrick one week earlier. The Lady Cats hadn't played since hosting St. Patrick on Aug. 3. Bath County opened the season with three straight home games. Bath County compiled a 2-1 record over the three-game stretch. The Lady Cats, under the guidance of head coach Jeremey Booher, opened their latest cam- paign with back-to-back wins over Bourbon Coun- ty and Nicholas County.

Another Brandon Price receiving touchdown helped the cause, pulling the 'Cats to within 14 at 39-25. Another Young to Price passing score made it a one possession game, 39-32. However, the Com- ets rebounded with a sus- tained drive of their own that resulted in another TD and a 45-32 lead. With only six minutes remain- ing. Bath CountyBs Bran- don Price would score on a six yard run to make it a one possession game. A defensive stop gave the ball back to the 'Cats with 2:29 remaining. Be- hind DeKeiton Young's passing arm, the Cats marched down the field to the Comet 25 yard line. A short pass set up the 'Cats on the 19 with ten seconds remaining. On the last play of regula- tion, rolling right, Young heaved the ball to the corner of the end zone, where Taborn Kissick, Athletic N showing good concen- tration, came down with a one-handed grab to tie the score at 45. The extra- point was missed and the two teams went into over- time. In high school football, both teams get posses- sion at the other team's ten yard line. The fCats won the toss and elected to go first. Fittingly, the 'Cats last score mirrored their first; Curren Shrout powered the ball in from the three and the fCats led for the first time since the first quarter. The coaching staff decided to give the ball to Curren for the two-point conver- sion and the senior run- ning back did not disap- point, bowling over two Comet defenders to give the Wildcats a 53-45 lead. The defense prevented the Comets from scoring and the team celebrated its first victory of the 2013 campaign with a thrilling come from behind win. For the night, Brandon Price had five (3 receiv- ing, 2 rushing) touch- downs and DeKeiton Young had four passing TDs. The Wildcats will travel to Lewis County on Friday night to battle the Lions. The football team was not the only team that picked up its first victory this week. The Wildcat soccer team defeated Maysville St. Patrick on Monday by a score of 9-0. Elon Bartley would score the first goal and the rout was on. A goal from Zack Horton was quickly fol- lowed by Justin Rawlings' first goal of the game. Eli Hubbard and Jarrod Henderson would also score to give the 'Cats a 5-0 at the half. In the second half, Justin Rawl- ings would score three times to give him four for the game. Caden Messer would also get in on the scoring frenzy and Jakob White recorded a shut- out in the goal. The 'Cats next victory would not be nearly as easy. Menifee came to Owingsville on Wednes- day for a G/B double- header. The LadyCats played well, but could not score and lost a tough game, 1-0. The Wildcats found themselves trail- ing 1-0 at the half, but scored late in the second half to force overtime. In the second OT period, Zack Horton was tripped in the box, setting up a Caden Messer penalty kick. Caden's kick to the lower right corner was good and the vCats had their second victory of the season. With the win, the team goes to 1-0 in district play.
