One of these bright spots came very early in the game as Ben Watts blocked a punt for the Pioneers and returned it to the end zone [...]

Pioneers nipFalcons in close victory

On an evening better suited for basketball, the Glenville State College Pioneer football team was able to head north to Notre Dame College and come away with a tough earned victory.

Although the offense was unable to produce even two hundred positive yards, the defense once again played well for the Pioneers. The defense caused a trio of turnovers on the day which [...]
