Warren County spoils White County's homecoming

The Warren County Pioneers ruined homecoming for their border rivals and along the way took a district win, dropping White County 20-14.The Pioneers improved to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the district as they put last week’s heartbreaking overtime home loss to Coffee County behind them. They were helped along the way by four Warrior turnovers as the home-standing squad turned the ball over on the second play of the game when quarterback Trenton Hodges threw a fly route that only Warren County’s Adrian Lusk was running. He swiped the pass in stride and set the Pioneers up for their first drive.The Pioneers took no time driving down the field with a 65-yard, eight-play drive that culminated with a Christian Wilkinson 22-yard scamper to put the visitors up 7-0 early in the first quarter.It appeared the Pioneers would hold the Sparta squad to a three-and-out on the next possession but a running into the kicker call on the punt attempt gave the Warriors new life.
