Warriors can’t handle Pioneers

While Bryce Staker put up 13 points for the Warriors, nine coming in the first half, it was Pioneers forward Jeremy Johnson who caused problems all night, scoring 27 points in the Warriors’ 73-51 loss.

“We were having trouble finding openings,” Whiteland coach Matt Wadsworth said. “They kept getting big runs on us, and we tried to slow them down with our zone defense, but they kept hitting big.”
