CBC put a halt to the Pioneers’ 2014 campaign, pouring it on in the second half to win 55-10 and move on to the state championship. KHS drove down the field on their opening possession, capping it off with a Ryan Higginbotham 25 yard field goal. However, the Cadets, as they did all night, stayed true to their run game and scored from 36 four minutes later. After an empty possession, the Pioneers got the ball right back, courtesy of a DJ Daras interception, yet CBC soon did the same, picking off Wil Hadler for six points. Robert Columubus’ two yard TD run made it 14-10, but would be the final of KHS’ season. Going into the second half down 21-10, the Pioneers were unable to engineer anything, turning the ball over twice and failing to halt the Cadet offense. KHS’ season is not over of course; they play Webster on Thanksgiving, at Moss Field.


Back at their barn, hockey blew out Seckman 9-1 in their home opener. Zac Day, sophomore, started it off with a goal 2:15 into the contest, his first of the year. Nolan Swindelle, junior, added another to make it 2-0 at the end of the first period. Seckman answered 24 seconds into the second frame. The Pioneers proceeded to score four unanswered goals, and lead 6-1 at the end of the middle period; those came from Mitchell Drexler (junior), Tanner Drake (junior), Landon Fuller (freshman) and Adam Tackes (junior). Up by five, KHS still wasn’t done, continuing the rout into the third period. Cole Mudra (senior), James Fuszner (sophomore) and JP Postal (junior) added to the tally. The Pioneers hope to stay hot against Fox, next friday, 6:30 at Kirkwood.
