It seems the Warren County Middle School soccer team is destined to play every home game on a soggy field.For the second time this season, the Pioneers were able to get a game in during a break in thunderstorms, but the result was the same as the first.Warren County lost 3-2 to the visiting Webb Feet Thursday, dropping its overall record to 2-2 for the season.Playing at Nunley Stadium, the Pioneers had to fight a fired-up Feet squad while also trying to deal with slippery conditions.Webb featured former Pioneer Mitch Owens as one of its main attackers on offense, giving the game some added intensity.Warren County fell behind 2-1 at halftime. Didier Lopez scored for the Pioneers off an assist from James Jackson while the Feet got an early score and a late penalty-kick goal.Coach Matt Jackson switched his attack for the second half, pulling keeper Evan Reynolds out of the goal and putting the eighth-grader at the front of his offense.The move worked when Reynolds got an open look inside the 18-yard box and drilled a shot just inside the right post for a goal.Reynolds jumped with joy on his way back to midfield as the score was even at two with 15 minutes to play.The game didn’t stay tied long.Webb got back on the offensive, sending multiple shots at goal as Warren County had trouble sticking with members of the Feet.With 10 minutes to go, Webb took the lead with a hot shot from the left side that stayed just inside the right post for a goal.Warren County had a few late looks in the final minutes, including getting a corner kick, but the Pioneers couldn’t send the game into extra time with a last-second goal.The Pioneers will look to bounce back from defeat with two matches this week.Warren County travels to Franklin South Middle School tomorrow for a 5:30 p.m. match against its Central Tennessee Conference opponent.The Pioneers will hit the road for another CTC game Friday.
