Simon Kenton got a pair of goals from senior Cory Knaley, including the game winner with six minutes left in the Pioneers’ 3-2 win over Dixie Heights on Saturday.

The Pioneers built a two-goal lead by intermission, but the Colonels stormed back to tie it. Sophomore Andres Rivera dented the net three minutes into the second half, then senior Zach Kilmer tied the score for Dixie Heights with just over 19 minutes left.

Knaley, who scored the Pioneers' first goal of the day, added his 16th goal of the season to break the tie. Sophomore Hrusto Selimovic scored Simon Kenton's other goal.

The Pioneers await the winner of the Grant County/Walton-Verona game in the title game for the 32nd District. The Colonels open the postseason on Monday, playing Villa Madonna for the right to advance to the 34th District championship.

HALFTIME: Simon Kenton, 2-0. GOALS: SK—Knaley 2, Selimovic. DH—Rivera, Kilmer. RECORDS: Simon Kenton 11-9-1, Dixie Heights 10-8-2.
