Few teams had a better stretch of days than the Lady Pioneers last week. Warren County won four games in the span of five days, including starting off the Southern Warrior Classic by beating Science Hill (Ind.) 6-3 Thursday and rallying past Blackman 7-5 Friday. 

Warren County (4-2) also swept Cookeville last week, showing it still has plenty of talent in the pipeline. 

Senior Kora Forbes took a starring role in Thursday's win, throwing seven strong innings and getting the job done at the plate for Warren County. Forbes finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs, including a run-scoring single in the third when Warren County plated three runs to break a 2-2 tie. Freshman Lola Wells and sophomore Maggy Whiles also had RBIs in the frame, while Alyssa Mosley's late sac fly added some extra insurance in the sixth.

Blackman threatened to break up the perfect week by taking a 5-1 lead early in Friday's matchup, but Warren County rallied back and closed out another win in thrilling fashion. 

Jaz Ward kept the Lady Pioneers close early with a solo homer in the second and a RBI double in the third before Wells tied the game with a two-out, two-run single in the fourth.

With the time limit winding down in the fifth, Whiles delivered the knockout blow. She scorched a game-winning double, scoring Brooke Wilson and Maddox Adams. 

Warren County won't play at home Tuesday against Shelbyville as originally scheduled (game has been moved to April 10), but will play Sparta Monday on the road.
