WCHS falls in OT
Lady Pioneer Sally Wilmore hopes her corner shot will end up in the net during Thursday night's game versus Stone Memorial.

With 1:46 left to play, Stone Memorial’s Lady Panther soccer team scored to tie the game 1-1, after Warren County’s tenacious defense held onto a 1-0 lead after Allison Cripps found the net with an assist by Sally Willmore. Warren County would have been up 2-0, but another Cripps score was called off. The Lady Panthers’ score sent the game into sudden-death overtime where the Lady Pioneers lost 2-1 at home Thursday night.
Lady luck was not on the Lady Pioneers side when they drew a foul just outside the 18-yard box in OT. This resulted in a free kick for the Lady Panthers which sailed over the goal.
However, Warren County drew a foul in the box during the free kick which resulted in a penalty kick which was good. However, the Panthers had to retry due to a technicality. The second attempt was also good, ending the contest.
“I felt like our varsity squad outplayed Stone Memorial, but we were unable to put them away when we had the chance,” said Warren County coach Todd Wilmore. “It was a tough loss for the girls. They played well. We should have an opportunity to play Stone again in the district tournament.”
The Warren County High School JV soccer team won its match 6-0 earlier in the evening. In a true team win, they controlled time of possession.
“We had 14 girls who contributed and played well together. Their possession was excellent and they capitalized by scoring 6 goals. I was very proud of the whole group,” Wilmore said.
Warren County Lady Pioneer JV soccer action continued this weekend as they played in a Cookeville tournament. The JV and varsity teams play Soddy Daisy at home Tuesday. Games begin at 5 p.m.
