WAUKOMIS, Okla. —
Pioneer football is getting better, but its road ahead certainly isn’t getting any easier.
Coming off its second-best scoring outing of the season, Pioneer (1-5, 0-2 in A-3) faces its third top-20 offense in as many weeks tonight, visiting A-3 foe Crescent at 7:30 p.m.
Consistent scoring has been a season-long bugaboo for the Mustangs, who despite putting up 68 points in their last three games, including a season-high 42 against Snyder, sit at 45th out of 58 Class A teams in scoring offense.
The upward trend will have to continue against Crescent (4-2, 2-1), which with 192 points has Class A’s 16th most potent offense, even after a 35-7 loss to No. 8 Minco, the second time the Tigers have been held to single digits in 2012.
A win against Crescent would be Pioneer’s first in the series. The Tigers have won all seven meetings since 1972, outscoring the Mustangs by an average of 39.7 points per game, the closest a 25-0 Crescent win in 1976.
