GENTRY -- The Pioneers capped off homecoming festivities with a big win over the Tigers from Green Forest in Pioneer Stadium on Friday night.

Though many news outlets said the game was canceled, it really did take place, and the Pioneers quickly took command in the game, scoring a touchdown and point-after in each of the first three quarters and doubling that effort in the final quarter for a big 35-14 win in the homecoming game.

The Pioneers had 308 rushing yards and a total of 168 passing yards in the game. The Pioneers, led by sophomore quarterback Ty Hays were 19 for 22 through the air in the game. All five of Gentry's touchdowns were in the rushing category, some with the Pioneers powering the ball across the line.

Garrison Jackson gave the Green Forest quarterback grief, catching him behind the line of scrimmage more than once. Will Pyburn carried the ball in for a touchdown on a fourth and goal play from the 8-yard line.

The score was 14-0, Gentry, at the half. Green Forest scored its two touchdowns and PATs in the third and fourth quarters, but Gentry added another 21 points in the second half to secure the victory.
