On Wednesday night I attended the 6A Sweet-16 game of Pinnacle at Highland 

Highland was the 3 seed but Pinnacle, the 14 seed, had most of their players finally back from injury and have been in a groove recently. 

Right from the tip, the Pioneers took control of the game inside the paint and utilized their size to dominate. 

They turned over the Hawks and it led to layups. Pinnacle hit some timely 3’s and won the game from inside out. 

Hawks do have a nice core of youth and Coach Fazio is slowly building something special from the ground up. 

Pioneers also already have 4 freshman playing on varsity. Losing some STUD seniors from last year and this year, they have quickly reloaded and look to have a bright future once again. They have a interesting match-up at Mountain Pointe where both teams are the high seed. The match-ups in this game will be fun down low and at the guard spot. 

 

Final score was 70-59 Pinnacle. 

Here were some of the standouts from the game:
