WCMS soccer tops Tullahoma
Warren County Middle School Pioneer Jordan Ramirez, right, was fleet of foot in the teams 5-1 victory over Tullahoma at Nunley Stadium.

Remaining undefeated on the season, the Warren County Middle School soccer team took on the visiting Tullahoma Wildcats and a slightly soggy Nunley Stadium field Tuesday, staying fleet of foot with a 5-1 win at home.
The Wildcats only came knocking on the Pioneers’ (7-0) door twice in the contest challenging the keeper. The first was the only score Tullahoma made as the Wildcats placed a corner kick right in front of the net and made it a textbook score late in the first half.
The second time was later in the second half when the Wildcats penetrated the box toward Pioneer keeper Jahier Martinez, but it was quickly dispatched by the Pioneer defense.
“I talked to them about the corner kick. That’s something we have to work on, defending those against a better team. So that’s a good thing to see. I hate to give up a goal, but that’s all right when it’s 5-1,” said Warren County Middle School coach Matt Jackson. “We made adjustments having some fun moving people around a lot more and more time on the ball to make the right passes, moving to the right place, and that’s frustrating to the other team. That makes me feel good because we’re working on it and I see it happen during the game.”
The Pioneer offense was in high gear all night, and struck first with an unopposed kick from the corner of the box by John Jackson, 1-0.
Thanks to the jump start and the time-of-possession factors by the Pioneers, they were able to make passes cleanly and accurately and goals kept coming as Juan Garcia made it 2-0 off a crossing pass.
Kade Simpson would double the current score by making both the third and fourth goals for WCMS, 4-0, before the successful corner kick by Tullahoma, 4-1.
Garcia would put one more in before the final buzzer to round out the night’s offense, 5-0.      
Warren County Middle School travels to McCallie for its next game on Friday.
