The Pioneers lost at Charlotte-Ardrey Kell 16-5 on Saturday. Williams and Ben Henson each had two goals apiece; Canyon Mueller had a goal; Stratton made 17 stops in the loss.


"I'm not too worried right now," Green said. "These two teams are probably among the top ten teams in the state. I'm not gonna to panic just yet."
