White County gives WCHS tough time
Lady Pioneers bloodied, beaten
Lady Pioneer Tyra Wright tries to wrestle the ball free from defending Warriorettes to avoid a jump ball turnover at Warren County High School on Tuesday night against White County.
When someone says they’re going to bloody your nose, they are usually using it metaphorically.Unfortunately, Lady Pioneer Elsa Eckenrod, Warren County senior starter and often top points maker, got her nose bloodied in the second half by a wayward limb and had to leave the game.That’s the kind of night WCHS coach Shea Panter was dealt, including a close loss to White County, 49-42.Starting out the first quarter a bit slow, neither team got on the board until Warren County’s Tyra Wright put up a bucket underneath halfway through the first quarter. The exchanges were give and take all the way up to a 1-point contest at halftime, 19-18, in favor of the Lady Pioneers.Both teams stayed competitive until the fourth quarter when the Warriorettes slipped away 2 points at a time. With 2:00 remaining, a 44-40 lead by the Warriorettes was extended to a 7-point lead and final, 49-42.
