Pioneers turn over football, game, to Warriors

St. Paul fell to the Minneapolis Warriors 13-7 Saturday at Cooper High School.

The Pioneers fell behind early, when Warriors quarterback Aryton Scott hit Marcus Foster with a deep bomb. The 7-0 Minneapolis lead would last until late in the game, when Scott scored on a 1-yard sneak into the end zone after the Warriors returned an interception into the red zone. St. Paul blocked the extra point and trailed 13-0.

Throughout the game, the Pioneers were uncharacteristically sloppy with the football, turning it over a total of six times -- five interceptions and a fumble. Still, late in the contest, the Pioneers had some life when quarterback Cleve McCoy first hit receiver Cordero Jones with a deep pass over the middle and then passed to Juice Akins in stride to pull within 13-7. An onside kick was recovered by the Warriors, however, and Minneapolis ran out the clock to record the win.

The Pioneers are now 6-2 overall, 4-1 in NEFL play, heading into the Fourth of July bye week.

St. Paul will host the Battle Creek Sting July 8 in a return to Sea Foam Stadium.
