Head Coach Thomas Dilworth played just five players over the weekend and the Pioneers walked away with a pair of comfortable wins.

Friday the boys jumped out to a 15-6 lead after eight minutes against the Dutton/Brady Diamondbacks. Junior Ryan Roth and sophomore Parker Proulx each connected from down town in the first.
