Megan Patch, seen in a previous game, had a crucial four-point play to help Warren County defeat Cookeville 46-41 Saturday.

A second later and it would’ve been too late.

Only the slightest gap existed as soon as Megan Patch caught a pass in the corner. She had a fraction of a second to launch before being pancaked.

Laying on the floor, the Lady Pioneer junior was able to see her pivotal 3-pointer swish through the net.

Patch’s four-point play was the swing play as Warren County collected its first District 6-AAA victory 46-41 over Cookeville Saturday. 

Patch finished with 10 points, none bigger than her big play that gave Warren County a 39-33 lead with 2:50 left. Patch added a crucial layup with 30.2 seconds left after the Lady Pioneers struggled to seal the game at the free-throw line.

Tyra Wright added a team-high 11 points to help Warren County snap a six-game losing streak to the Lady Cavaliers. Warren County held the lead for the entire second half, using a 10-2 run in the third quarter -bookended by 3-point plays from Wright and Bri Young - - to go into the fourth ahead 31-23.

The victory improved the Lady Pioneers to 11-10 overall and 1-2 in district play. 

Warren County will be back at home Tuesday for matchup with district-leading White County. Action is set to start at 6 p.m.
