Bobcats beat 3A Chemawa Braves, 38-19

SALEM — Union made a seven-hour bus ride well worth it Friday.

The Bobcats picked up their third win of the season, defeating 3A Chemawa 38-19.

The game was played with eight players on offense and 11 on defense.

“We didn’t have enough players to practice 11 on 11 last week,” coach Jon Reynolds said.

“So it was pretty impressive the way the kids played.”

The Bobcats led 12-7 after the first quarter and 20-13 at halftime.

Union then added to a 26-19 lead in the fourth quarter to pull out the win.

As a team UHS rushed for 328 yards. 

Ty Coon had his typical solid game.

Coon rushed for 196 yards on 25 carries and scored three touchdowns. He also made an impact on defense, returning an interception for a score and taking a recovered fumble in for six points.

Aaron Clark had 66 yards rushing on 12 carries and one touchdown.

Reynolds also commended the play of Braxten Anderson.

Anderson had six rushes for 29 yards, but that doesn’t tell the whole story of Anderson’s night.

The full back was the lead blocker for Coon and Clark, often going up against the Braves’ huge defensive line.

Chemawa has three players that weigh in at 320 pounds.

“He took it up the middle all night. He really took it on the chin. It was a tough game for him,” Reynolds said.

The coach was also impressed with his defense in the win.

“It was the old bend but don’t break. The kids showed a lot of heart,” he said.

“You could see on the kids’ faces that they were having a ball.”

The Bobcats are now 3-4 this season with wins over Pine Eagle and Arlington to go along with this one.

The team will get back in action when it hosts Ione Friday.

The Cardinals are 4-3 overall and 3-2 in the Special District 3 league. They beat Arlington 66-20 Friday.
