The WCMS football team went up against the Franklin North Gators on Tuesday night at Nunley Stadium looking to continue the momentum of last week’s 24-8 home victory over Mt. Juliet.The Pioneers were without one of their leaders on defense, Kaden Jordan, who was out with a concussion but it didn’t faze the Pioneers against the Gators.The Pioneers used the rushing attack of C.J. Taylor, Xander Lee and Ryland Holder to cruise to a 38-6 victory to improve to 2-0 on the season.Taylor gave the Pioneers momentum early with an interception on Franklin North’s second possession, giving Warren County prime field position.On their own 49, Taylor took the ball and weaved through the Gators defense, on his way to a 51-yard touchdown to give the Pioneers the lead, 6-0, with just over a minute left in the first quarter. The two-point conversion was no good.After a Gators three-and-out, the Pioneers had favorable field position on the Gators side of the field.The Pioneers got down to the Gators 15-yard line and Taylor did the rest as he broke away from the Gator defense to extend the Pioneer lead to double-digits, 12-0.
