Pioneer 3, Knox 2
One night after a four-game win over Logansport, the Panthers went the distance in a win over visiting Knox (25-22, 27-29, 25-23, 16-25, 15-7).
“I think we were down a little bit emotionally as far as last night. We played with high emotions and played well most of the game against Logansport,” Pioneer coach Rod Nies said. “Tonight it was whoever played on the north end of the gym won the game, whoever played on our home bench won that set.
“When we lost our focus our serve receive was really bad and we started spraying the ball everywhere. But we played well when we needed to. Knox is a really nice team. He said they’re 3-5 but they’ve lost to some really good teams. ... We scrimmaged them over the summer and split with them.
“I tell you what, the fans in attendance got their money’s worth tonight.”
