It wasn’t the dominating win of a week ago for the Warren County Middle School football team, but the Pioneers left Franklin County Tuesday night with their second victory.Christian Wilkinson’s four-yard score on a boot leg on fourth-and-goal to begin the fourth quarter proved to be the difference as the Pioneers defeated the Gators 12-6.Coach Greg Cotten saw his team sweat out a win after Franklin North controlled the clock with onside kicks in the first half. The Pioneers only touched the ball twice in the first 16 minutes.Ultimately, it was a great defensive effort and timely plays by the offense which carried the Pioneers to victory.“It was a tough game. We kept putting ourselves in bad positions early,” said Cotten.
