Maybe Warren County should play all of its games on Thursday night.
Lee Carden threw three touchdown passes and the Pioneers snapped a 15-game losing streak with a bruising 37-13 victory over Cumberland County last night at Nunley Stadium.
The Pioneers overcame an early Cumber-land County touchdown to rattle off 30 straight points and take a commanding 30-7 lead. The Jets got as close as 30-13, but the outcome was never in question for most of the second half.
In only his second game at quarterback, Carden provided plenty of heroics. He threw a 62-yard TD pass to Jeremiah Lance for Warren County’s first score, then connected with D’Andre League for an 81-yard touchdown.
Carden’s final TD toss was an 8-yarder to a slicing Mitchell Ashford. That made it 37-13 in the fourth.
Tristan Reish and Cameron Lusk added TD runs for the Pioneers.
Playing at Nunley Stadium for the first time this season, Warren County (1-2) was energized by a vocal home crowd. The student section stormed the field after the victory.
It was the first win for the Pioneers since the 2010 season. The last team Warren County beat was the Jets.
