UNION — The Union football team snapped a five-game losing streak with a 10-7 Blue Mountain Conference victory over Enterprise Friday night.

The win improves the Bobcats to 2-5 overall and 1-5 in the BMC. Enterprise falls to 3-5 overall and 2-4 in conference.

“I can’t believe that,” Union head coach Jon Reynolds said. “Especially coming off some of those losses where we haven’t really gotten over the hump. Against a team that’s bigger than us. We just pushed. All the backs ran hard.”

The win was anything but easy.

Jordan Alexander got Union on the board with a 32-yard field goal with 8:23 left in the first quarter. Then Ty Coon connected with Brooke Scantling on a 22-yard flea-flicker to make it 10-0 with 1:33 left in the opening quarter.

“We put that in this week,” Reynolds said of the play. “We’ve had a problem with people blitzing us up the middle. We figured we’d spread it out. We worked on it Thursday in practice and thought what the heck, nobody’s seen it on tape, we’ll try it.”

Both teams struggled to get anything going in the second and third quarters, but Enterprise finally got on the board on a 15-yard touchdown catch by Will McCadden with 7:01 left in the fourth quarter. After Union was forced to punt, Enterprise went on the move again, marching down the field.

The Outlaws got to the 10-yard line but failed to convert on a fourth down and five yards to go with 11 seconds left, giving Union the win.

Coon rushed for 161 yards on 22 carries for Union, while Scantling had 58 yards rushing. Chris Ross and Alexander combined for 46 yards on the ground. Reynolds also credited J.D. Graves’ play on the defensive line for the Bobcats.

McCadden rushed for 105 yards for Enterprise, while Isaac Rowley had 55 yards for the Outlaws.

The Bobcats host Pilot Rock Friday at 7 p.m. for the season finale. Enterprise plays at Stanfield Friday at 7 p.m.

Ione 38, Elgin 14

ELGIN — The Elgin football team fell to Ione 38-14 Friday night.

The Huskies struggled to hang on to the ball, fumbling nine times and throwing two interceptions.

Hayden Bershnyi had 100 yards rushing and a touchdown for Elgin, while Chris Roberts rushed for 80 yards and a score. Gavin Christensen finished with 60 yards receiving.
