Lady Pioneers take title
Placeholder Image
The Warren County Middle School girls soccer team has had some easy wins this season, but none were easier than the one the Lady Pioneers picked up late Tuesday afternoon.After it was ruled Franklin South Middle School, which went undefeated in Central Tennessee Conference play this season, played an ineligible player, the team had to forfeit all of its games from the season, including a win over Warren County Aug. 27.The loss had been the lone blemish on the Lady Pioneer record going into this weekend’s tournament and the reason Warren County was supposed to play a CTC tournament game Wednesday night at home, but the forfeit handed the Lady Pioneers a first-round bye and the No. 1 seed in this week’s CTC tournament held in Tullahoma.The Lady Pioneers were the No. 1 seed a season ago and played host to the CTC tournament, but Warren County fell in overtime to Shelbyville Harris Middle School in the finals.If the Warren County Middle School varsity team wins the tournament tomorrow, it will be the second championship for coach Matt Walker in the span of eight days.The junior varsity Lady Pioneers completed an undefeated season last Saturday by winning four games in the CTC tournament to claim the championship.Opportunistic offense and a dynamic defense led the Lady Pioneers to be crowned tournament champions.Warren County didn’t surrender a goal in four matches, while Clara McCormick and Abby Roller had huge days to power the Lady Pioneer offense.Warren County beat Franklin South 4-0, Coffee County 3-0, Franklin North 2-0 and Shelbyville Harris 2-0 in the finals.McCormick started her day with two goals and an assist in the 4-0 victory over Franklin South.
