Pioneer scored three goals in the second half, after taking a 1-0 halftime lead, to record a 4-2 win over host Dexter in girls soccer action on Tuesday.
Mckenzie Sapp recorded one goal and one assist to lead Pioneer (7-3-1), while Katie Matton, Emily Turner, and Sarah Starman each added one goal.
Jennifer Fichera added two assists, while Sofia Gambini made four saves to record the win.
"We played with great energy in the first half, and we scored late in the half to take a lead right before halftime," Pioneer coach Chris Coleman said. "I thought we actually played better in the first half than we did in the second, but we created more scoring chances in the second half.
"The energy trailed off a little bit in the second half until we picked up that second goal, and give Dexter credit because they really pushed us that whole game. We need to work on focusing from start to finish, and that will dictate how far we go this post season."
Olivia Vollmers scored two goals to lead Dexter (9-4-4), while Lindsey Llyod and Bethany Shiguango each added one assist. Stephanie Misevich made six saves.
The Saline girls soccer team scored two goals in the second half to break a 0-0 tie and grab a 2-0 win over Ypsilanti Lincoln on Tuesday.
