The White County High School Warrior soccer team improved to 3-1 on the season with a 3-1 victory over visiting St. Andrews-Sewanee Thursday.
The teams played to a scoreless tie through the first 20 minutes of the contest. Justin Davison broke the tie when he headed in a cross off the throw-in from Shane Young. That goal, with 15 minutes left in the first half, put WCHS on top 1-0. They would never trail in the contest.
The teams went into the locker room with the Warriors holding the slim 1-0 advantage.
The score remained even until senior Robert McBride gave the Warriors a bit of breathing room with his goal 18 minutes into the second period.
Warrior goalkeeper, Chris Dodson, came up with a big save two minutes later on a Saint corner kick. Just a minute later, Jonathan Fann ran the WCHS lead to 3-0 off a well-placed offering just past the Saint keeper. Davison recorded the assist on that goal.
St. Andrews got into the scoring column with 12 minutes to play. A penalty on the Warriors for contact in the box gave the Saints a penalty kick which they converted making the score 3-1. Dodson came up with another big stop with six minutes to play in the contest as the Warriors finished off the 3-1 win.
The Warriors, who have won three consecutive games, will be in search of their first district win when archrival Cookeville visits Tuesday for 7 p.m. District 7AAA contest.
