Cold weather and closed schools last week couldn’t stop the Warren County Middle School boys soccer team from traveling to Murfreesboro on Monday and topping Blackman, 6-2, in the first game of the preseason.In a tough matchup with the Blaze, the talents of the Pioneers could foreshadow another successful season for WCMS, as it has gone unbeaten in the regular season for the last four years -- and won the conference championship to boot.“I always try to get challenging games in the preseason because our first regular season game is always against our biggest conference rival, Harris Middle School,” said WCMS soccer coach Matt Jackson. “The preseason is a good chance to change formations, experiment with players in new positions and to get in game shape.”The boys started quickly and scored the first goal at the five-minute mark. Kade Simpson is a very quick forward who controlled a crossing pass and easily beat the goalie for the first score, 1-0.
