Pioneers look for homecoming win
Placeholder Image
While all the talk this week has been about the parade and float building, the Warren County High School football team is hopeful everybody leaves Nunley Stadium Friday night talking about a Pioneer win.The Pioneers will be trying to a break a lengthy losing streak at home when the team plays host to Stone Memorial on homecoming at 7 p.m.Warren County (2-4) hasn’t won a homecoming game since 2010, when the Pioneers rallied from a halftime deficit to beat Cumberland County 43-21. That was the same score Warren County lost by last week when Tullahoma handed the Pioneers their eighth straight loss at Nunley Stadium.Warren County fans haven’t seen the home team win since the final game of the 2012 season. On senior night two years ago, the Pioneers clobbered Soddy Daisy 55-35, capping a year when the team went 3-2 on its home field.Snapping the losing streak against a District 6-AAA opponent, while also avenging a heart-breaking loss to the Panthers last year, would be an ideal scenario for the Pioneers.Last year in Crossville, Warren County held a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter against the Panthers, only to see the game sent into overtime on a field goal as time expired in regulation.
