Coffee shuts out WCMS
Placeholder Image
Wednesday’s weather was perfect for football. Unfortunately for the Warren County Middle School football team, it was the only thing that was perfect as the Pioneers took on Coffee County Middle School in a day game in front of the WCMS student body.Warren County was shut out by the Red Raiders, who were carried by Reece Pratt to a 22-0 victory.The Pioneers, who fell to 2-4 this season, had their chances to slow down the Red Raider offense, but Pratt seemed to come through in the clutch each time.Behind Pratt’s 135 yards on 26 carries, including a fourth-quarter touchdown, Coffee County controlled the clock and limited the opportunities Warren County got on offense.The Pioneers got the ball first, but a three-and-out led to A.D. Majors punting the ball to the Red Raiders.Coffee County didn’t take long establishing its ground game as Pratt carried eight times for 46 yards on a 14-play, 66-yard scoring drive that spanned into the second quarter.On the first play after the first-quarter break, quarterback Grant Sadler snuck in from the Pioneer 1 to put Coffee County on the board. Pratt added the two-point conversion, making it 8-0 four seconds into the second quarter.A short kickoff gave the Pioneers prime position near midfield and the running of quarterback Trayton Rackley moved Warren County into Coffee County territory for the first time, but the drive stalled following back-to-back imcompletions.Majors came back to punt a second time and his kick left Coffee County starting at its own 20, where the Pioneers would get a big break.Pratt got the call on the first play following the punt, but was stripped by Ethan Stuart as he came through the line.
