WCMS shuts out Coffee, DeKalb
Warren County Middle School soccer player Marvin Franco takes a corner kick earlier this season. Franco scored against DeKalb County in the box Friday night.
Warren County Middle School’s soccer team had a successful road trip as the Pioneers first dropped in on Coffee County and took a 5-0 win Thursday, followed by a trip to DeKalb County on Friday where they defeated the Saints 8-0, remaining unbeaten on the season.Missing starter John Jackson, who was recovering from an ankle injury suffered against Harris Middle, and Carter Smith, the Pioneers (6-0) decided to adapt their formation to only three defenders, adding a striker to make up for the missing Carter.“This meant that we had to play quick and use the numbers to our advantage in the attack,” said WCMS coach Matt Jackson. “Coffee County might not be very skilled but they did a good job of getting bodies in the way, and it took us a while to find the net. We had to work at passing out wide, pulling the defenders out, then crossing in.”The Red Raiders blinked first, as Dominique Betancourt did an excellent job up front at center forward scoring the first two goals of the night.
