Pierz couldn’t recover from a frigid start at Osakis, Saturday, falling 66-47 to the Silverstreaks.
The Pioneers were unable to make a field goal until seven minutes remained in the first half, digging a double-digit hole.
Pierz closed the gap to 13 midway through the second half, but couldn’t pull any closer.
Senior Alyssa Boser and junior Bridget Bednar each netted 14 points and sophomore Kayla Carter finished with 11 to pace Pierz.
Senior Mickey Rocheleau added two points and pulled down a team-high six rebounds.
