Going into the half of their District 6AAA match against Warren County on Monday at home, the Warriorette soccer team was in good shape.
The Lady Pioneers, however, turned a 2-1 halftime advantage in a 6-1 district win in the final period of play.
Warren County scored the first two goals of the game and held that lead until right before the half when Sarah Webb pulled the Warriorettes within a goal with three minutes left in the period.
WCHS had a couple of opportunities early in the second half, but couldn’t convert. Three big saves by goalkeeper, Jerrica Swift, kept WCHS in contention. However, with 17 minutes left in the game, the Lady Pioneers took over.
The visitors netted four goals over the remainder of the contest securing the 6-1 win.
With 17 minutes left, Warren County kicked one in from outside the box. Two minutes later, they added their fourth goal of the game. With seven minutes left, they scored on a kick from the right side that found its way in all the way across to the left side off the side bar and careened in. The final goal came with two minutes remaining when the Lady Pioneers headed in a corner kick putting the finishing touches on the win.
Coach Amber Hawkins commented on the contest, “Warren County just wore the defense down. We played with them the first half and they finally broke through. We just have to keep the momentum going from the first half into the second half to finish off games.”
The Warriorettes fell to 2-4 overall and 1-2 in the district with the loss. They will host Cookeville Thursday at 6 p.m. in another District 6AAA match-up.
