Sophomore goalie Meghan Bisignani made 11 saves; fellow sophomore Sarah Williams played eight minutes and made one save in the loss.
"The girls played well and are improving," said WHS coach Holley Quick. "We are having to play very young, inexperienced girls for most of the game. They will get there."
The Pioneers travel to West Forsyth Tuesday.
