Last weeks boys' and girls' basketball games were so intense that even this reporter found herself getting caught in the action. First the Pioneers faced the Londonderry Lancers. The Lady Lancers are currently the third ranked team in the state, while the boys team has struggled to finish games this year which has left them at the bottom of the standings. The Lady Lancers were celebrating their Senior night, but with several clutch plays and strong defensive plays our Lady Pioneers almost managed to ruin senior night for the Lancers. However the Pioneers fell just short loosing by two. The boys on the other hand showed the Lancers that they were going to go hard for the whole game, and the Pioneers emerged victorious winning 64-38. Friday night both Pioneer teams were challenged by two very strong Salem teams. The girls found themselves in a hard fought game on both sides of the court, and it was clear that neither team was going to go down without giving 110%. In the end our Pioneers were able to outplay the Salem girls and win 56-49. Meanwhile the boys faced a battle in Salem. Throughout the game the Pioneers played their game but Salem stuck right with them, both teams never let up on the other. In the end the Pioneers won a tight one down the stretch 52-49. Meanwhile this week Trinity Hockey destroyed our city rival Central, winning 5-1, by simply out toughing the Central Little Green.
