If Edgar Morales and Bryson Lewis keep up their scoring pace from their first game as high school basketball players, the Warren County High School boys freshman team could be in for a splendid season.Morales scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds while Lewis added 19 points to help Warren County defeat Coffee County 56-47 on opening night at Charlie Dalton Gym.It was the first game Morales and Lewis suited up in the same uniform after having dominant middle school careers. Morales, a star on three county championship teams at Dibrell, and Lewis, a former WCMS standout, led the Pioneers to victory in a game which looked like it was going to be a blowout early.Warren County raced out to a huge lead in the first quarter over the Red Raiders. Morales had 11 first-quarter points, including beginning the game with a three-point play, as the Pioneers took a 16-4 lead into the second quarter.Two quick baskets from Lewis gave Warren County a 20-4 advantage a minute into the second quarter.
