The Mooresville Pioneers Varsity Football team took to the road in week one of the 2018 Indiana High School Football Season traveling to Lebanon to take on the Class 4A Tigers. Mooresville’s opening drive of the season culminated when Senior quarterback Karson Goodman connected with Senior wide receiver Jon Eineman on a 54 yard touchdown pass and the Pioneers never looked back winning the ball game in convincing fashion, 46-7. The Pioneers dominated Lebanon on both sides of the football as the offense put up a total of 435 yards and a defense that held Lebanon to 282 total yards and 7 points.
Jon Eineman lead the Pioneers scoring attack with 3 touchdowns, 2 through the air and one punt return that resulted in a 63 yard score. Other Pioneers that were able to reach pay dirt included Brayden Evans (6 Yard TD Run), Breken Greene (13 Yard TD Run), Blake Garrett (25 Yard TD Reception), Kalija Perry ( Fumble Recovery for a TD), and Christian Swigert (4 for 7 PAT’s).
The Mooresville Defense played just as electric as the Mooresville Offense. The Pioneers defense held the Lebanon Tigers at bay all night long allowing just 7 points in the second quarter. Mooresville’s defense forced one interception, had one fumble recovery and forced the Tigers to punt 6 times in the 65 plays Lebanon ran Friday evening. The Mooresville Pioneers defense was prepared and came ready to play and the result lies in the final score.
Friday nights week one win was a total team effort for the Mooresville Pioneers. The team came into the ballgame with a positive frame of mind and were coached very well leading up to and during the 46-7 victory. The club executed the game plan as expected and played hard the entire evening. The Pioneers would like to thank all of the parents, families, students, friends, and fans as well as the Town of Mooresville for all of you support. Thank you also to all of the fans that made the trip to Lebanon on Friday, everyone’s support is greatly appreciated. #PioneerPride
