Pioneers roll over Golden Eagles
WCHS earns spot in district title game
WCHS Pioneer Freddy Franco takes an aggressive stance on defense against Rhea County but got a whistle on the play.
It was quality versus quantity Tuesday night as the WCHS Pioneer soccer team felled Rhea County 3-0 to advance to the district championship game in Cookeville.Although the Golden Eagles spent more time with ball, the Pioneer offense was able to capitalize on its shots toward the keeper, earning all 3 goals in the first half and defending the lead in the second.“It was a slow start for us, but the boys held it together nicely with Rhea attacking one too many times early on,” said WCHS coach Orion Smith. “We attacked the game with conviction and just had fun with the game. The seniors are really playing well this year and the younger players are stepping up well against much older, experienced players.
