PLATTEVILLE, Wisconsin (WKOW) -- The Pioneers never let the visiting Buena Vista Beaver take the lead in their Saturday season-opener, and would go on to get a blow-out 49-13 victory. 

Junior quarterback Tom Kelly was near perfect, going 21 of 25 passes for 277 yards and five touchdowns in his first collegiate start. 

The Platteville defense held the Buena Vista offense to just 151 yards rushing on 39 attempts. 

Next up for the Pioneers, a road game at the University of Dubuque Saturday, September 12 at 6 p.m.
