Pioneers defense, special teams help overwhelm Sting

Quarterback Cleve McCoy threw two touchdown passes -- one to Delane Woods and one to Davarus Branigan -- and the Pioneers' defense and special teams got in on the scoring in a 31-7 victory over the Minnesota Sting at East Ridge High School in Woodbury.

Linebacker Dominique Young and defensive tackle Brandon Murdock scored second half touchdowns -- Young's on a blocked punt and Murdock's on a fumble return -- to help the Pioneers pull away in the second half. St. Paul led 10-0 at halftime.

Kicker Eric Ellestad nailed a 35-yard field goal for the Pioneers' other points.

The Sting scored their points on an interception return for a touchdown.
