Entering this season, Conestoga knew the one thing that would determine its level of success.


And through three games, head coach Mike Troy and the Pioneers have to be pleased.

“As a team this year, we knew we were going to be led by our defense,” Troy said. “Tonight was about as good as you could ask for.”

The Pioneers have started the 2016-2017 campaign allowing just 37.3 points per game, including their best performance yet in a dominant 48-25 win over Ridley.

After back-to-back wins over Neshaminy and Radnor, this defense has yet to allow 50 points in a game, and the 2015-16 Central League runners-up have now posted two league wins by an average of 20.5 points.

“The Central League is always a war,” Troy said. “The more wins you can get the better, and to get off to a 2-0 start puts our good foot forward.”
