After splitting a pair of games already this season with Franklin County by very narrow margins, these two teams are familiar with each other and on Monday afternoon in the Coffee County Christmas Tournament, they would face off for the third time.Warren County would be missing several players in the rotation due to illness and injury and playing with a couple who were recovering from flu-like symptoms Monday. The Pioneers would need some of the younger guys to step up during the game and fill key roles.Holden Baker would lead the scoring with 14 points and Krojhn Calbert followed close behind with 13 points of his own. But despite their efforts, the Pioneers ran out of time and gas down the stretch and Franklin County won this meeting late from the free-throw line, 60-49.Franklin County was up coming out of the break 31-22 to start the third quarter.
