The Pioneers, who are now in the three-way tie with Kewaunee and Oconto for first place in the Packerland at 12-2 in the conference and are 18-3 overall, host a league game Monday night against Oconto, the last team to defeat Sevastopol, before closing out the regular season at home Thursday with another conference game against Peshtigo.
