This week the Malone Pioneers took on Northern Michigan. And I'm happy to report it was a VERY good game! The teams battled and the scales tipped toward both teams throughout the game. Half way through the 4th quarter Northern Michigan was starting to pull ahead with a 14 point lead. But you can't count the Pioneers out! They rallied and scored 14 points in 5 minutes to end the game with a tied score.
It was super exciting and somewhat nerve wracking to head into overtime. The Pioneers were on offense 1st and they scored a touchdown! But then the scary part…it was time for the defense to take the field against the NM offense. The defense held strong and the Pioneers won 42-35!
It was a very exciting 1st win of the season! We were thrilled and to top it off it was homecoming at Malone, so the kids also had a blast with festivities.

There was face painting! Nora chose Olaf.
And Sawyer chose a monster…so he could scare people :)
There were also balloons! Sawyer chose a sword and Nora chose a fishing pole with a fish. Sad to report that neither balloon creation made it to the end of the game :)
It was a brisk fall day, but Kolter didn't mind. He loves all the activity of game days!
Nora adores her daddy and loves on him every chance she gets!

Nora with the homecoming king! Nora is a child that will literally run away screaming from a mascot, but a strange boy with a crown she is all in. Funny child :) She patiently waited in line to get a chance with the king.
Just a couple of my monsters.
