If the Warren County Middle School football team wants to defend its conference championship this season, it will need to continue to take steps like it did on Thursday night.The Pioneers welcomed in Cannon County to the Warren County Middle School practice field and proceeded to whip the Lions in an hour-long scrimmage.Warren County scored three times early in the scrimmage and held the Lions out of the endzone until the final possession.Coach Greg Cotten, who in three years at WCMS has taken the program from a winless season to a Central Tennessee Conference championship, was pleased with the performance of his team Thursday.“I thought the scrimmage was a success,” said Cotten. “We identified our strengths and know what we need to work on. We have a lot of room to improve.”Ricky King got the scrimmage started off the right way for the Pioneers when he broke a 50-yard touchdown run on the sixth play.King would go on to score again as Warren County was able to establish the running game against the Lions.
