The first half was very competitive for both teams. The Saints were ahead 30-23 at the end of the first, but the Pioneers rallied for an impressive second half.
"We played well the first half but I give credit to Indian River who came out of the locker room with intensity for a great second showing," said Saints head coach Chris Mowry.
The Saints did not make it easy on themselves as turnovers plagued the team throughout the game.
"We can't have 27 turnovers and expect to win against hard-working teams," continued Mowry.
