Fun in the mud: No. 5 Pioneer survives Caston’s challenge

ROYAL CENTER — Caston needed just one more stop or one more Pioneer turnover late in the game to have a chance to send shockwaves throughout the state.

But the Panthers came up big down the stretch, overcoming a personal-foul penalty during a touchdown-scoring drive in the fourth quarter that sealed the game.

Pioneer overcame rainy, muddy conditions and another big challenge by arch-rival Caston in a 20-6 win Friday night at The Pit.

Joe Miller had 34 carries for 151 yards and three touchdowns to lead Pioneer (3-1, 3-0 Midwest Conference). Quarterback Mitchell Williams added 90 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Caston (2-2, 1-2) was held to 141 yards of total offense but still had a chance until Miller found paydirt from 7 yards out with 1:05 left in the contest to push Pioneer’s lead back up to two scores.

Quentin Douglass went 5 of 13 for 70 yards through the air for the Comets. He added a 14-yard touchdown run with 7:20 left in the game to cut the lead to 12-6. He added 31 yards on the ground on 13 carries, and Jeremy Gonzalez added 40 yards rushing on 11 totes.
