The Warren County Middle School soccer team made a statement against White County on Thursday night.
That statement was, “We’re going to beat you 11-0.”
The Lady Pioneers scored early and often in capturing a convincing 11-0 win over visiting White County.
“We passed the ball unbelievably,” said WCMS coach Matt Walker. “There are no selfish players on this team. That’s the key to our success.”
If there were any questions entering this game, they were answered early. WCMS scored three goals in the first six minutes to put the game away.
“When we went up 3-0, I immediately started to bring in some younger players,” said coach Walker, who didn’t want to run up the score. “This game was a great opportunity for some of our younger players to get on the field in a varsity game. All 28 girls got on the field.”
Leading the way for the Lady Pioneers were Natalie Reed, Madison Mason, Vanessa Contreras and Abby Roller, who all scored two goals apiece. Madison Merriman, Emily Webb and Allison Cripps each scored once.
In addition to her two goals, Contreras added an assist. Other players getting assists were Sally Willmore and Emily Webb.
