Another great season for the Warren County High School girls soccer team has come to a close just shy of the state tournament.The Lady Pioneers fell in the sectionals for the second straight season Saturday when the team lost at Oakland 1-0. It dropped Warren County’s record to 16-6 this season – with four of those losses coming to teams competing in this week’s state tournament.Warren County was playing its third game in five days when it traveled to Murfreesboro Saturday for a matchup with the 18-4 Lady Patriots. It was a familiar trip after having to play the Siegel Lady Stars last year in the sectionals – a game the Lady Pioneers lost 3-0.The experience from last year, along with a feisty Lady Pioneer defense, helped Warren County play Oakland to a scoreless stalemate in the first half, but Lady Patriot sophomore A.B. Hawkins scored in the 49th minute and it proved to be the difference.Warren County coach Todd Willmore and his team took the loss hard as a state-tournament bid eluded the Lady Pioneers for the second straight year.“This loss was tough, especially to be that close to advancing to the state tournament,” said Willmore.
