Jacob Oswald scored three touch downs leading the Pioneer Ridge eighth grade varsity football squad to a 36-14 win at Paola, Sept. 27.
Besides Oswald, Andrew Halverson had TD runs of five and 30 yards, and quarterback Jack Mills scored a 2 point conversion run and tossed two point conversion passes to Oswald and Brett Sherman.
“Both the offense and defensive lines played well,” said coach Kevin Collins. “The defense shut out Paola for three quarters and created some turnovers.”
Providing up front blocking were linemen Danny Beyer, Hunter Molford, Ashton Guthrie, Donovan Kelly, Lucas Asay and Tristen Cody.
Meanwhile, the defense was anchored by J. Oswald, Nolan Oswald, Halverson, Kelly and Jared Bartlett.
Pioneer Ridge returns home to host Eudora on Oct 4.
