It was a disappointing finish to an incredible year as the Pioneers fell to the Statesmen 28-0. The Pioneers scored a big touchdown on a pass to Kendall Day near the end of the first half that would have made the score 14-7, but it was called back on a holding penalty, and the next play resulted in an interception, and the Pioneers never really recovered.
Still, it was an amazing accomplishment to just make this game a reality. Who can forget the 4th and goal from the one yard line that the stingy Pioneer defense stopped to secure a thrilling win over Holt in the first game of the playoffs. . . and of course, the big interception to seal last week's win over Camdenton!
Coach Irvin has done an amazing job in a short time, and the program will continue to grow under his leadership. I'd like to say thanks to Coach Irvin, his outstanding staff, and this team for providing us with so many fond memories of a thrilling season. Go Pioneers!!
Don't forget to head over to Moss Field in Webster for the Annual Turkey Day game this coming Thursday. We will maintain possession of the bell, right JV? . . .
