|The boys Varsity team won their second game
in a row and raised their
record to 4 and 4 Friday evening. They jumped out to a 18 to 2 lead and
pretty much coasted the rest of the way. Zac Silverman led the way
with 23 points, Hauptman had 12 and Danenmann had 8. The three starters
from last years team are all playing well and providing leadership to this
developing Pioneer team . Rounding out the scoring were Kevin Craig with
8, Willy Kern with 5, Jon Jarvis with 4 and Chris Lynch with 2.
The girls team had a very exciting contest against a traditional powerhouse from New London. The Pioneers got off to a slow start and fell
behind 12 to 2 by the 4th minute. However they gradually found their way
and with tough defense and scrappy shooting tied the score with three
minutes left in the game 45 to 45.
Down by a point with 25 seconds on
the clock and New London with the ball the Pioneers fouled. The Tigers
were in a 1 and 1 situation, missed the shot and the Pioneers had the ball
and called a time out. Now the stage was set, but a diving New London girl
batted the ball as the Pioneers tried to get the ball inside to Amellia
Schuldt deflecting the ball off of the Pioneer and out of bounds and
giving the ball back to New London with virtually no time left.
This was definitely a tough loss for the Pioneers but there is no
that these girls are becoming a force to be reckoned with. Stay tuned for
Next game for boys is January 4th at Cardinal, Fres/Soph at 6:30 followed
by Varsity. Varsity boys and girls will play January 8th at 6:30 (girls first)
against Central Lee here at home.
