After a first quarter that saw Pioneers running back Ronald Zollicoffer score three touchdowns -- two by rushing and one by punt return -- and Pioneers receiver Joseph Mapson snare a touchdown catch of his own, the Pioneers defense got into the act. In a big way.
|LL pick six.|
After Mapson's second touchdown catch from quarterback Cleve McCoy, Lamarre would do it again ... although after a much shorter run. Lamarre stepped in front of a Warriors receiver and nearly walked into the end zone from about 25 yards out.

The game was not only a chance for the Pioneers defense to get offensive, but it proved it could be pretty stingy as well., The Pioneers intercepted six Warriors passes on the day on their way to St. Paul's fifth shutout of the season -- 62-0.
St. Paul closes out its regular season this coming Saturday at Park of Cottage Grove High School, as the Pioneers face the North Bank Bulls in a rematch of an earlier loss. St. Paul lost to the Bulls 16-7 in a defensive game. If the Pioneers hope to win the division and earn a first round playoff bye, their defense needs to play even better.
