WCMS soccer blazes to scrimmage victory
Placeholder Image

The Warren County Middle School soccer team has taken every challenge thrown its way this season and has emerged with an unbeaten record.
On Monday night, the Pioneers were faced with a rather unusual situation – a scrimmage with a combination of players from Covenant Academy’s high school and middle school teams. The Lions field co-ed soccer squads, which may have been a disadvantage because they had girls competing, but they also had some eleventh-graders as well.
Once again the Pioneers proved too tough to tame as they emerged with a 4-0 scrimmage victory at Warren County High School. The Pioneers used their overwhelming speed and fundamentally sound ball skills to control the game. It was back and forth the opening 10 minutes, but the Pioneers were able to settle down and dictate the tempo the rest of the way.
WCMS was scheduled to end its season Saturday in Shelbyville in the conference tournament, but the games were called off Friday due to expected bad weather. With the tournament rescheduled for this Saturday, WCMS coach Matt Jackson didn’t want his team to go a solid week without seeing game action.
Covenant Academy has seen vast improvement this year as its soccer teams are competitive under the direction of coach Chris Madewell. The Lions have fared well, according to headmaster Alan Smith, only losing to the top-tier teams in their conference.
