Warren County Middle School goalie Rachel Stewart could have brought a recliner to Tuesday night’s soccer game in Sparta.
White County didn’t manage a single shot on goal as Warren County cruised to a 5-0 win.
Makenna Mason scored three goals and Elizabeth Morrison had three assists to highlight the WCMS attack.
“We dominated the midfield and that was the difference in the game,” said WCMS coach Matt Walker. “White County couldn’t get the ball past our midfielders and that let us keep the ball on our end all game. Our defense didn’t allow a single shot, not even a corner kick.”
Savannah Cox and Samantha Ramsey scored the first two goals before Mason knocked in her first of the game. It was 3-0 at halftime. In addition to his offensive players, coach Walker applauded the play of Sarai Ruiz, who was very active at midfield.
The win improves WCMS to 2-1-1 in conference play heading into a pivotal home matchup against Tullahoma on Monday night. A win will lock the Lady Pioneers into second place, while a loss will drop them to fourth.
“We’ve been firing on all cylinders ever since we tied Coffee County,” said Walker. “Coffee County is a very talented team with a lot of travel players. After we tied them, it gave us some momentum.”
Monday’s game against Tullahoma will also serve as eighth grade night. Game time is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
