The Warren County Middle School soccer team continued its pursuit of excellence, playing two games in two nights. Monday, the Pioneers played host to White County and defended the house at Nunley Stadium on senior night, decimating the Warriors, 11-0.
“It was our eighth grade night,” said WCMS head soccer coach Matt Jackson. “I played all my eighth-graders all night and just added a few seventh-graders. We actually had to get creative to not run up the score even higher. It was a great chance to work on fundamentals, so I made the boys make five passes before someone could shoot, and then flipped the defense with the forwards. In the end, almost every player scored making it a fun night.”
Tuesday, the Pioneers (9-1) took to the road to Winchester, facing Franklin County South’s Gators.
Not long into the game the Gators were hung out to dry and the Pioneers took their second win in the same number of days, 10-0.
“Franklin South has been doing well in the conference, beating Tullahoma and almost beating our nemesis, Harris, so I was hoping for a good game, but they said they were missing a bunch for a track meet so it was fairly easy again,” Jackson said. “Since it wasn’t eighth grade night I subbed everyone around. At one point I had almost the whole JV team on the field.”
The Pioneers have one more conference game Monday, April 17, on the road against Franklin County North, then it is on to tournament action. Game time is 5:30 p.m.
