Junior cornerback Tim Geraghty blocked two extra-point kicks, including one that might have tied the game in the fourth quarter, to help the Mustangs clinch the BVAL's Mt. Hamilton Division crown and a spot in the CCS Open Division playoffs with a 34-33 victory over Piedmont Hills on Friday night.

Pioneer (7-3, 6-1) entered the game tied with Piedmont Hills and Leland for the division lead. However, Leland's overtime loss to Independence gave the Mustangs the division title outright.

"I'm really proud of our guys," Pioneer coach Eric Perry said. "We had some bumps in the road. Leland got us, but we focused after that game and came out and ran the table."

After trailing for much of the game, Piedmont Hills came close to tying the score early in the fourth quarter after senior wide receiver Howard Butler caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Anthony McBride. However, Geraghty blocked Nick Paterniti's kick to preserve the lead.

The Pirates managed to get down to the Mustang 23 late in the game, but Pioneer forced a turnover on downs

Sophomore Louie Coulombe scored two rushing TDs for Pioneer (7-3, 6-1). Anthony Logan scored on a 70-yard run, Jeremy Iniguez also ran for a TD and senior wide receiver Matt Blomquist caught a 25-yard scoring pass from junior quarterback Zach Silva.
