Successful scrimmage for WCHS
Placeholder Image
Scrimmages can be fool’s gold for a football team, so the Warren County Pioneers went to Stratford High School Friday looking not to win on the scoreboard, but merely give a glimpse of success that may carry over to the fall.Coach Tommy Johnson saw plenty of things to think the Pioneers are making big strides during spring practice despite the final score favoring the Stratford Spartans 21-7 at the end of the scrimmage.Some of the positives consisted of how the Pioneers played and competed against the Spartans, who are coached by former Warren County offensive coordinator Aaron Pitts.Coach Johnson also thought the score was much closer than the lead official, Pitts, indicated at the end. With a few calls going against Warren County that disallowed touchdowns, coach Johnson questioned what the final score really was at the end while praising the effort of his team.“I think coach Pitts would say 21-7, but I’d like to think it was 21-21,” said Johnson. “We had a few scores where he called our guys down just short of the line and he got a hard time for that.“I really thought we competed well.
