WCHS soccer still looking for win
Placeholder Image

The Warren County High School soccer team has had several close calls this season, but the Pioneers are still yet to capture that elusive first win.
The Pioneers took Coffee County down the final minutes Friday night at home, but a late goal by the Red Raiders gave the visitors a 2-1 win.
Warren County (0-8-1) came into Friday’s District 6-AAA tilt winless despite having played solid soccer last weekend in the Rebel Classic held in Franklin County. The Pioneers tied Marshall County, but lost to Lincoln County and West Creek.
Friday’s game, which was originally set for Thursday before rain postponed the match, was the second chance for the Pioneers to earn a district victory. For a while, Warren County was getting the big breaks and looked like it would find a way to win.
The game went into halftime tied 1-1 despite Coffee County owning both goals. The Red Raiders scored 10 minutes into the game to take the lead, but gave it back when the team knocked the ball into its own goal after a corner kick by the Pioneers.
Freshman keeper Evan Reynolds helped keep the game tied for a long time as he made several diving stops against the Red Raiders. Late in the game, coach Todd Willmore elected to move Reynolds out of the net to take advantage of the freshman’s offensive skills, but the plan backfired.
Coffee County got the game-winning goal late when the Red Raiders were able to score against the Pioneer defense and substitute keeper Jacob Dodd. The score would stand up as the Pioneers failed to get the equalizer late.
Warren County fell to 0-2 in district play while suffering its eighth loss this season. The Pioneers will be looking to break the losing streak Tuesday when the team plays host to Monterey. Action is set to start at 6:30 p.m.
