Lady Pioneers knock off No. 10 Cannon County
Placeholder Image
Erick Baird has won 42 games as the coach of the Warren County High School girls basketball team, but he didn’t have to think long when asked where the 39-36 win Friday night over the Cannon County Lady Lions ranked. “It is the biggest win of my career,” said Baird.With a tenacious defense, balanced offense and clutch plays in the final minute, the Lady Pioneers ended Cannon County’s perfect season with a win at Charlie Dalton Gym.Warren County (7-4) held the Lady Lions 28 points under their season average, something which seemed improbable since Cannon County had topped 70 points in two of its last three games, including defeating the DeKalb County Lady Tigers 70-38 Tuesday night.DeKalb County had beaten the Lady Pioneers 49-31 Nov. 20, which added to the notion the Lady Lions, who entered the game 10-0 and ranked No. 10 in the state, would enjoy a similar blowout win in Warren County.The Lady Pioneers wouldn’t give an inch to Cannon County though, especially star Lady Lion Abbey Sissom.
