Pioneers topped by Cavs
Placeholder Image
Maybe all it took for the Warren County High School football team to play its best game this season was to see its rivals across the sidelines.The Pioneers (0-5) battled the Cookeville Cavaliers to a 10-10 stalemate at halftime before giving up 28 straight points in the second half to fall 38-16 at home in the District 6-AAA matchup.The Cavaliers’ (3-2) second-half rally ruined a record-setting performance by Pioneer sophomore quarterback Hunter Mullican. Mullican threw for over 300 yards, finishing 26-of-46 for 311 yards and his first touchdown pass of the year.Mullican’s first-half touchdown toss to D’Andre League gave the Pioneers their first lead of the season, 10-3 with 3:45 left in the second quarter, but Cookeville answered back with a touchdown in the final 30 seconds of the half and would use the momentum to rally for a big second half. Coach Tommy Johnson saw improvement all around from his team.
