After years of relying on senior leadership to win, the Warren County High School girls soccer team used a youth movement to start their 2014 season on a positive note.Sophomore Madison Mason scored twice and freshmen Sally Willmore and Abby Roller each had assists to help the Lady Pioneers open the year with a 4-1 victory over Bradley Central. Senior Isabel Kirby and junior Alana Ortiz added goals for Warren County.The Lady Pioneer roster had a complete overhaul over the summer as nearly every player who helped the team to back-to-back substate runs has graduated. Only senior Rylee Hilliard saw significant action in both years and now she’s back helping lead the Lady Pioneers.It’s been successful so far.Coach Todd Willmore saw aggression and confidence from his young bunch Tuesday that could serve the group well this season.“I was very pleased with our play.
