Friday in Fort Benton the boys played very well early on and headed into the second quarter even at 10-10. The Longhorns took a 11 point advantage into the halftime locker, 35-24 but the Pioneers continued to play hard.

Fort Benton would ad three points to their lead in the third quarter and the teams played even in the fourth leading to a 67-53 Longhorn win.

Junior Ryan Roth led the team with 19 points in the contest. Junior Brock Proulx added 15 and sophomore Kade Strutz 10 for the Pioneers.

Saturday against the undefeated Sugarbeeters the Pioneers took their best shot but trailed 14-6 at the end of the first and 35-18 by intermission.

The 'Beeters extended their lead to 57-28 at the end of three and won 70-39.
