Pioneers Can't Keep Up With Warriors in Season Opener
Friday August 27th. The start of the high school football season. Not really. After numerous lightning delays, the players were supposed to be allowed on the field for warmups at 8pm. Around 7:55, another lightning bolt struck the ground, causing Warwick's athletic director to throw his hands up in frustration. The game was pushed back to Saturday.
Take two. High school football is back. In this rendition of Saturday night lights, the back-to-back reigning District III 4-A champion Pioneers facing off against the Warwick Warriors, who went undefeated last season prior to forfeiting the 5-A title game due to a COVID-19 outbreak. The last time these sides faced off was all the way back in 2005, with the Pioneers winning by a score of 34-7.
