Henderson loses the rematch, 28-17.
From the jubilation of a Ches-Mont championship to the sting of a first-round, home-field playoff loss, the Henderson High School football season jerked to a close Friday night, ending a seven-day stretch that was a reflection of the exciting and memorable 2011 campaign.
