Lady Pioneers win big
Placeholder Image
Rarely does a goal by a Warren County opponent swing the momentum in favor of the Lady Pioneers, but that’s exactly what happened in Tuesday’s District 6-AAA soccer tournament semifinal game.The White County Warriorettes kicked the ball in their own net to break a scoreless tie, then the Lady Pioneers tacked on seven straight goals to win 8-0 and punch their ticket to the regionals for the third straight year.The start of Tuesday’s game was exactly the opposite of what coach Todd Willmore and the Lady Pioneer faithful wanted. With the painful memory of the Lady Pioneer volleyball team’s upset loss in the district tournament still fresh, coach Willmore wanted his team to start out fast to avoid any letdown.Instead, Warren County saw anxiety building for the first 20 minutes as White County kept the game scoreless against the high-octane Lady Pioneers.The game changed with 18 minutes to play in the first half though as the pressure the Lady Pioneers kept applying finally forced a crack in the Warriorette defense.Junior Ansley Mullican took a corner kick and the ball flew in front of the Warriorette net. In an attempt to clear the ball, one Warriorette defender jumped to meet the ball.
