The Pioneers rushed 26 times for 156 yards and three touchdowns, and completed eight of 17 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns.
Tyler Kenny carried it 14 times for 25 yards, Patrick McAreavy four for 30 yards, and Daren Miller four for 11 yards against the pesky Pioneer defense.
Kellen Jacobson scored the Bison's first TD on a one-yard run, with Seth Johnson kicking the PAT. Jacobson also figured in on the second TD on a 10-yard pass to Ray Wedeking in the fourth quarter, Johnson again kicking a successful PAT.
Both teams lost two fumbles each in the hard-hitting contest that saw Buffalo Ridge claw back from that 14-0 halftime deficit to pull to within 21-14 in the third frame. However, the Pioneers scored two fourth-quarter TDs to ice it away.
"Okoboji came with one of the better offenses we have seen this season and we felt that our kids responded well. Even with the loss, we were pleased by the effort of our team," said Bison coach Butch Faulkenberry.
"A contributor to the 34 points Okoboji scored was our five turnovers, putting the defense in tough spots several times during the game. We must somehow solve the turnover bug that has hit us all year. It was the one factor we can control which altered the outcome of this game.
"Cherokee (next opponent) will air it out and they have a lot of weapons. If we can build off last week's efforts, we hope to give them a run."
