Pioneers Lose Another Close One on the Road, 17-10 By Jamie Mullins, Sports Editor In general, 2013 has been a {0ugh season for the GSC Pioneers. Youth, inexperience, and reckless errors have resulted in multiple close games end- ing in defeat. When the Pioneers traveled to the Capital City for the University of Charleston Homecoming on Satur- day, Oct. 12, it was more of the same for the Pioneers. On offense, the Pioneers struggled to finish their drives. In the first half of the contest, the closest the Pio- neers got to scoring was field goal range. Josh Brown, a freshman kicker, managed to put three points on the board with a 36-yard attempt mid- way through the second quarter, but the 46-yard attempt at the quarters end was blocked and appeared to be just out of his range. At halftime, the Pioneers trailed the Golden Eagles, 14-3.
