It took the Lady Pioneers awhile to get their offense going this week, but it hasn’t slowed down once the scoring started in the second half of Tuesday’s game in Rhea County.Warren County broke open a scoreless District 6-AAA game with four goals in the second half to beat the Lady Eagles 4-1, then followed it up with a 6-0 victory over Clarksville Northeast Wednesday in the opening round of the Ladies Championship tournament held in Nashville. With the victories, Warren County is now 5-1 this season and ran its winning streak to four straight matches.It took an entire half for the Lady Pioneers to figure out Rhea County’s defensive strategy Tuesday. Warren County had several looks at the goal, but none would find the back of the net.It wasn’t until junior Saydee Winfree hit the mark in the second half the floodgates would come open.Winfree, known for her strong defense and solid play in the midfield, worked her way into scoring position when the Lady Pioneers began pushing forward in the second half.
