48-0 Homecoming Victory!
The Pioneer Defense had 6 sacks, held the Boxers to -9 yards rushing and scored a touchdown in their shutout of Pacific University October 2 at Fred Wilson Field. The Pios seemed to be firing on all cylinders. In addition to an outstanding defensive performance, the Offense put on a show for the fans, running the football for 356 yards and passing for an additional 151 yds. The Pio O-line has been performing well, currently averaging 300.5 rushing yards-per-game, bringing new meaning to the phrase "Lineman Win Games." Keith Welch finished with 2 passing(both times connecting with Shawn Evans) and 1 rushing TD. Joevante Mayes rushed for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns. Tucker Laurence connected with freshman Peter Lovincey for another touchdown. The Pios advance to 2-2, and take their place at #4 in the conference standings. They'll take on the Menlo Oaks at home on Oct. 9.
