Game recap by; Mark Zeske of the Star-Telegram:

Saginaw Boswell's Terrance Wair blocked a 39-yard field-goal-attempt with 3:07 left as the undefeated Pioneers held on to a 15-14 victory over Haslet Eaton in a District 6-5A game Friday night at Pioneer Stadium. Boswell QB Brayden Thomas, who earlier had passed for a touchdown, scored on an 8-yard run early in the fourth quarter for the go-ahead score.

Key players: Beside Thomas, the offensive star for Boswell was Jay Garcia, who carried the ball 21 times for 70 yards. He also improvised on the PAT after Brandon Chatman's 38-yard TD pass, earning two points on a busted play by passing the ball to Jakoby Satroplus. Eaton RB Titus Swen rushed 36 times for 166 yards and 2 TDs. Dawson Pell added to the Eagles rushing total with 91 yards on 17 carries.

Key stat: The Eagles dominated in first downs 21-10, yards 332-194, and plays 70-44. Eaton also dominated the clock, with its longest drive (timewise) of the game taking up one-third of the first half. The drive, which ended with six seconds left in the first quarter, took up 8:07 but produced zero points. The Eagles started on their own 20 and turned the ball over on possessions when QB Riley Taylor lost 10 yards on fourth-an-goal from the Boswell 1. The drive netted 69 yards on 17 running plays, with Swen rushing 13 times for 58 yard

The win moves the Pioneers to 5-0 (2-0). Boswell travels to Brewer, Friday, October 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm for game three of district 6-5A play.
