Meigs got out to a 6-2 start, before the Pioneers went on a 6-0 run for their first lead at 8-6. From there, it was nip-and-tuck for most of the next two quarters.

The Pioneers led at the end of each stop: 14-12, 19-18, 39-34 and 57-40.

Meigs’ Ethan Stewart hit a three-pointer to pull the Marauders within 32-31 with two minutes to play in the third quarter, only to see the Pioneers finish on a 7-3 run to close the third period went to 39-32.

The fourth quarter was total domination by the Pioneers in their 18-6 final quarter run.
