It could have been worse for the Lady Pioneers Tuesday night at the Dalt. Still missing their tall post Tyra Wright and Rylan Moore due to injuries, Warren County took on its toughest district rival, Cumberland County, falling to the Lady Jets, 90-57.Considering Cumberland County scored 110 points against Rhea County, things didn’t go that badly for the Lady Pioneers.Up until the second half, the Lady Pioneers played great basketball, 40-31, at the break. Then the Lady Jets pulled out their full-court press and tuned up on Warren County with an increase in forced turnovers which they capitalized on, outscoring the Lady Pioneers 50-26 in the second half.“We just ran out of gas,” said Warren County Lady Pioneer head coach Shea Panter.
