The Pioneers scored their season’s first Greater Oregon League victory after topping La Grande 50-37 on Friday.
Mac-Hi coach Jordan Poynor left a “very excited” coach after the game — it was their first win over La Grande in almost 20 years.
“What a game that was played tonight,” he said. “The guys really came to play, and played hard.”
Dareagan Stevens led the way for the Pioneers, pouring in a team-high 24 points.
Mac-Hi (9-6, 1-1 GOL) will travel to Prescott, Washington, for a nonleague matchup on Tuesday.
UNION 61, STANFIELD 59 — Hugo Hernandez hit a 3-pointer in the game’s final seconds, but it wouldn’t be enough to save Stanfield from their third Blue Mountain Conference loss.
As a team, the Tigers posted 51 rebounds, with 28 offensive, but shot just 9 of 21 at the line.
