The game against Pioneer was a rough game. Found out before the game that since we beat Pioneer twice last year, they consider us their “rivals” and were very fired up for this game.

Again, the game started out well, with a 1-0 lead after the first quarter. And again, the 2nd quarter was our undoing, with mental lapses, a lack of energy, and not being able to take care of the ball – resulting in us giving up 3 goals, several while we were up a man. We picked up our intensity after half and fought to get back into the game, tying the game at 5 with a few minutes remaining. We had several unfortunate mental mistakes late, resulting in us giving up the final goal while down two men.
