Pioneer playoff hopes squashed
Placeholder Image
There will be no November football in Warren County.Any plans of the playoffs can be put on hold for another year as the Warren County High School football team lost 35-6 Friday night to the White County Warriors in a battle to decide the No. 2 seed in District 6-AAA.Warren County (2-6) knew heading to Sparta that a postseason berth was on the line. With a win, the Pioneers would’ve punched their ticket to the playoffs for the first time since 2008, but instead the Warriors will be making the trip this season.White County (3-5) won for the sixth straight time in the month of October, a streak dating back to last season, as five different Warriors scored on the ground to hand the Pioneers a crushing loss.The Warrior ground game was a cause for concern going into the contest as tailback Blake Lynn had wreaked havoc on opponents this season and gained over 100 yards in a win over the Pioneers a season ago at Nunley Stadium.In an all-out attempt to stop Lynn, Warren County seemed to lose Kayne Tollison on several occasions and the senior running back made the Pioneers pay.Tollison racked up 152 yards on the ground, leading a White County rushing attack that topped 250 yards Friday night.Tollison got off to a hot start.
