The Warren County High School soccer team clinched second place in the district Tuesday night as the Pioneers defeated the White County Warriors on the road, 1-0. The Pioneer record sits at 5-5 on the season with district play already in the books.
The Pioneers have three more regular-season games before district tournament play begins.
Taylor Madewell led the charge for the Pioneers, scoring the lone goal on a sloppy field.
The Pioneers and the Warriors were deadlocked in the first half as both teams didn’t get past the others defense. Both teams got shots on goal but none found the back of the net as the game remained a scoreless tie at the half.
Much like the first half, the Pioneers controlled much of the second half as they didn’t allow the Warriors to hardly advance the ball to their side of the field. Madewell broke the scoreless tie between the teams early in the second half with an assist from Juan Casas, 1-0, and the Pioneers finally had the momentum on the road.
As time dwindled down, the Pioneer defense continued to be solid, not allowing the Warriors to tie the game on their home field and ultimately prevailed, 1-0, clinching the No. 2 seed in the district.
The Pioneers were back in action Thursday night in Shelbyville, looking to improve on their 5-5 record. Results weren’t available at press time.
