Area football: Pierz powers past Lakes


PIERZ — It was a matter of getting back to basics.

The Pierz Pioneers suffered through a grueling five days of practice prior to Friday’s Central Minnesota Conference contest against Howard Lake-Waverly.

Then the Pioneers took out their frustrations against the Lakers to the tune of a 47-20 victory.

The sense of urgency came from a Sept. 7 loss to Holdingford where Pierz fumbled three times from within the 5-yard line and lost 12-7.
