Warren County trailed 30-25 at the half and were down by as many as 11 in the second half before rallying to eliminate the Brandon-based Fire.

Warren County improved to 10-0 in the summer and will have a full plate of games throughout June. The team earned a national tournament bid with Sunday’s win, but coach Donny Fuller said the team will decline the invitation because of cost and other conflicts.
