It was the kickoff for Homecoming weekend and the Lampeter-Strasburg football team needed to post a dub after a three week losing streak. Interestingly enough, Elizabethtown was riding high after a three game winning streak which they capped with by a 52-17 smack down of Penn Manor last Friday.
Sophomore quarterback Sean McTaggart secured the 20-13 victory for the Pioneers by rushing for 94 yards and scoring the lead taking touchdown with just over four minutes left in the game.
The Pioneers finish the regular season on Friday against Cocalico.
In addition, Elli Strauss was crowned homecoming queen. Johnny Franklin was crowned homecoming kind the night before during the annual powder puff game.

Okay, this one sounds a little bit funny but I hated …
Being a miniature pig owner may sound like a whole lot of fun, but think again. Taking care of a pig is a lot of work and takes a lot of time.
I have a miniature pig. They are a lot of work and very time consuming plus I don't have a lot of time on my hands. Pigs typically are supposed to be outside animals or in a barn but miniature pigs are allowed to be considered house pets.
Miniature pigs are very intelligent so it does not take long to litter box train a pig but the bad thing about them using litter boxes is when it is not cleaned frequently it starts to smell really bad. Cleaning the litter box is one of the time problems and a very smelly problem that can attract flies if not cleaned.
Not only do pigs start to smell if you don't have time to clean the litter box, but pigs also get lonely and bored easily. Without giving the pigs attention 24/7 they might start chewing on some of your important household objects or even the doors of your house. The miniature pigs also…
