The Kings fumbled away their first possession of the season but were able to stop the Panthers from converting on a short field. The big play was a Kyle Dwiggins sack that may have saved an early score.
The Kings were able to take advantage of a short field after a Pioneer fumble and Payton Young scored from 2 yards out late in the first quarter for the first touchdown of the season.
Young added a 14-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and made several big plays from his outside linebacker spot on defense.
Owen Ohman scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak on a fourth-down play in the third quarter and added a 17-yard TD pass to Leland Bowling on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it a 29-0 game.
Fullback Gabe Welch led the Kings with 113 yards rushing on 12 carries.
The Kings sacked Pioneer quarterback Sam Kiser four times in the shutout, with Dwiggins getting to him twice and one each for John Hartley and Cody Campbell.
