Hillmen rout Pioneer 55-0 for first win of the season

Led by a strong ground attack and a stingy defensive effort, the Hillmen routed Pioneer 55-0 for their first win of the season. Running back Owen Scott scored on runs of 20 and 13 yards, and Logan Markstein scampered 46 yards to pay dirt and Placer jumped out to a commanding 20-0 first quarter lead and never looked back. It was more of the same in the second quarter as fullback Jared Halbert scored a pair of touchdowns, and quarterback Clark Pietromonaco connected with tight end Tyler Gums for an 18 yard scoring strike to give the Hillmen a commanding 41-0 lead. The offensive line turned in a solid performance, opening up holes for the running backs all night long.  The defense was equally as strong, holding Pioneer to just 45 yards in the first half.  Linebacker Ryan Gray had a big fumble recovery in the first half, and Ryan Huston and Corey Yunk each had an interception. Friday night was the first shutout by Placer since head coach Joey Montoya took over in 2007. The JV lost a tough one 58-36, and the Freshman picked up their first win of the season with a 50-6 victory on Thursday night. Click the link below to read more about it!
