The Freshman Pioneers rounded out the long week with a hard-fought game at New Pal. The short-handed Pioneers still put up a fighting effort. New Pal opened the game in a 1-3-1, trapping zone defense. Turnovers were high in numbers, yet the Pioneers kept sticking around. A poor showing in the 3rd quarter led the Pioneers to a deficit they could not overcome.

Contributions were spread across the board. Jaxson Nielsen paced scoring for the Pioneers with 9 points. James Bolton and Gavin Rogers had 8 points each. Colin McBride contributed 7 points, and Julian Thompson added 2.

This loss bumps the Freshman Pioneers to 12-3, and marks the first time they have lost back-to-back games this season.
