Jonathan Alder quarterback JT Keith threw a trio of touchdown passes on Friday.
As a result, the Pioneers remained unbeaten (8-0) with a 35-14 triumph at Tecumseh.
Crew Wheeler was on the receiving end of two of those scoring strikes, while the other went to Tyson Mast.
Running back Garret Proxmire also scored two touchdowns on the ground.
The Pioneer secondary defense was solid as Dawson Detweiler, Jonathan Keith and Will Heisler each intercepted a pass.
Tecumseh held a 7-0 lead early, but the Pioneers came back in a big way.
“We scored on our next four possessions,” said JA head coach Brett Glass. “We responded very well after trailing early in the game.
“After that, we put it in cruise control and got a lot of our backups some playing time.”
No stats were available from the game.
The Pioneers will go into their two toughest weeks to wrap up the 2019 regular season.
JA will host Springfield Shawnee (7-1) on Friday and then travel to London (7-1) on Nov. 1.
