The White County Middle School football team played host to Coffee County, on Thursday night. The Warriors were supposed to take on Coffee County, on Tuesday night, but due to the storms that came through the area, the game was moved to Dee Harris field, on Thursday night.
The 40-8 win over the Raiders not only gave WCMS a win, but it also clinched the Warriors a spot in the Central Tennessee Bowl game. WCMS, which is 5-2 on the season and 4-1 in CTC play with only one regular season game remaining, was tied with Coffee County coming into the game. The win secured their spot in the title game. The bowl game is scheduled for noon, on Oct. 6, 2018, against South Middle.
In the game, the Warriors jumped out to an early 32-0 lead at the half and cruised to the win.
Malachi Dowell got the Warriors on the board first when he ran the ball into the end zone from 40-yards out for his first of four touchdowns on the night. The Warriors would lead Coffee County 6-0, with 6:01 remaining in the first quarter.
After a Raiders’ fumble that was recovered by Owen Adams, Adams would find Nate Mullins for a 27-yard touchdown pass to make it 12-0 in favor of the Warriors.
Dowell would then take over the game from there. Dowell would score three straight touchdowns for the Warriors, including a 12 yard, 70 yards, and a short yardage one that he would have no one around him. These touchdowns would give the Warriors a 32-0 lead at the half.
In the second half, the Warriors’ Adams would take off around the corner for 62 yards to make it 40-0 in favor of the Warriors.
Coffee County would tack on a late touchdown to cut the lead to 40-8, but the Warriors would pick up the win.
The Warriors will now set their sights on their final home game of the season. The Warriors will take on Warren County, at 6:30 p.m., Oct. 2, 2018, at Dee Harris Field.
