Soggy night brings end to dreary season for WCHS
Placeholder Image
If Soddy Daisy running back Cedric Edwards didn’t have a highlight tape before Friday, he is sure to make one now.Edwards ran for two scores, caught a touchdown pass, threw a TD pass and had a punt return touchdown to help the Soddy Daisy Trojans crush the Pioneers 54-14 on Friday night.The Pioneers had hoped to finish the season on a high note, but instead completed their eighth winless season in the program’s history.The Pioneers had a few shining moments in the season finale. Junior Mitchell Ashford had a splendid second half, catching six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown, but most of the yardage Warren County was able to rack up offensively came after the Trojans put the game away in the first half.Soddy Daisy started with the ball, but for just the third time this season, Warren County kept its opponent from scoring on its opening drive.A sack by Calvin Hammond and Tristan Reish set up a fourth-and-long and the Trojans were forced to punt. A bad snap sailed over Nathan Hodges’ head and the senior wasn’t able to run for a first down, leaving Warren County to take over at the Soddy Daisy 39.Two short runs by D’Andre League and an incomplete pass by Hunter Mullican gave coach Tommy Johnson a tough decision just two minutes into the game.Facing a fourth-and-seven at the Soddy Daisy 36 and without starting punter Ricardo Duenas, coach Johnson sent out Johnny Smith to punt instead of electing to go for a first down.Smith’s punt was downed at the 15 and the Trojans went back to work.
