Cookeville reminded Warren County Friday night just how much work the Pioneers have left to do in their rebuilding project.The Cavaliers crushed Warren County 47-0 on their home field to improve their record to 3-0 this season. It was the second straight loss for the Pioneers after opening the season with a win over DeKalb County.Before the season, Cookeville was picked as a co-favorite in District 6-AAA. The Cavaliers showed why in Friday’s district opener for both teams.Vic Johnson continued his early season tear with three touchdowns, all coming in the first half, while highly coveted junior Gabe Angel scored twice for the Cavaliers. By halftime, Cookeville led 33-0 and had outgained the Pioneers 283-76.
