Pioneers Start Season 2-0

After a stellar home opener against C-M-S, the Pios travelled down to Southern California, to face the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens. The Pios held off an attempted comeback by the Sagehens, to defeat Pomona-Pitzer on their home field, The Pio's second consecutive victory against them. Pre-game comments brought both programs out firing, with Pomona scoring on their opening drive. Not to be out-done, the Pios scored on their opening drive, with Keith Welch's first of 5 TD passes. Welch had a hand in 6 of the Pios scores, running for 1 on top of his 5 throwing, proving he can be a playmaker with his arm as well as his feet. The Pio defense forced turnovers when it counted and had 2 interceptions, and a fumble recovery to end Pomona's hope at a comeback. The defense was lead by seniors Baltazar, Kelly, Curtin and Lettunich. A great performance of 7 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception are credited to junior corner Logan Kotzian. Pioneer Football heads to St.Paul, Minnesota to face the Macalester Scots next Saturday.

you know now that I pay a lot of attention to the Lewis and Clark logo, it is pretty cool, I like it actually, the logo of the pay per head bookmaking football team of my work is rather cool too
