If the Warren County Middle School Pioneers and Morrison Eagles keep up their current play, it seems inevitable the two teams will finish tied atop the 5-6 grade elementary boys standings.The Pioneers and Eagles split their season series, but have dominated the rest of the competition in the elementary league.Warren County crushed the Centertown Warriors 34-8 Tuesday night to improve to 8-1 and keep pace with the Eagles as Morrison downed the Irving College Tigers 44-14 Monday.Morrison (9-1) kept a slim lead in the standings over Warren County because the Eagles have played one more game thus far, but neither team has struggled to pile up victories when facing other opponents.Behind 14 points from Crockett Walker and Sloan Seymour, Warren County had little trouble whipping the Warriors Tuesday night.Walker came out of the locker rooms on fire as he scored eight points in the first quarter to give the Pioneers an early 12-2 lead.Seymour took over in the second quarter, scoring all his team’s seven points as Warren County went into halftime leading 19-6.Seymour continued to have the hot hand in the third quarter. After an early layup, Seymour sank his second 3-pointer as the Pioneers built their lead to 20 points.Walker added six points in the period before he and Seymour headed to the bench to watch their teammates protect a 32-8 lead in the fourth quarter.Joshua Macanas accounted for the only points for either team in the final period as his layup gave the Pioneers a 26-point victory over Centertown.Brandon Hennessee added four points as Warren County extended its winning streak to seven games.Brant Young led Centertown, which fell to 5-5, with four points. Damian Thomas and Hunter Adams added two points apiece.Even playing without star point guard Ethan Smith did little to slow down the Morrison Eagles Monday night.Smith, No.
