Using a balanced attack, the Pioneer Ridge Middle School eighth grade varsity football team posted a 20-6 win against Paola Middle School last week.
PRMS quarterback Tyler Goetzmann tossed two touchdown passes. He connected on a 10-yarder to Kevin Michaud and a 25-yarder to Dayvin Johnson. Goetzmann also tossed a two-point conversion pass to Jacob Butash. On the ground, Butash also scored on a 20-yard run.
“After Paola’s initial drive, the team took their play to another level,” PRMS Coach Kevin Collins said. “I was really proud of the way the team responded.”
Excellent upfront blocking came from Michaud, Logan McGuire, Tate Ewbank, Aiden Lawrence, Bryan Oneri and Skyler Buie. Meanwhile, the defense was anchored by Butash, Lane Gall, Ewbank and Kevin Michaud.
Now 3-1, Pioneer continued its season at Louisburg Middle School this week.
