Bobcats stay unblemished against Riverside


Observer staff

RIVERSIDE — It took a second-half surge but Union dug out of a hole to defeat Riverside on the road Friday.

Ty Coon ran in a pair of touchdowns to rally the Bobcats from a 12-0 deficit, and turn it into a 13-12 win.




Union is now 2-0 on the season, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished for more than a decade. 

“It just came down to our group of boys wanting it more,” Union head coach Jon Reynolds said. “We were hot and tired after the first half. The energy wasn’t there in the third quarter.”



Both teams had trouble scoring in the opening half, with no score after two quarters.

“Both teams did a good job moving the ball, Reynolds said. “It was bend but don’t break defense on both sides.”

That’s when Coon took over, finishing with 224 yards on 26 attempts.

"Ty is a tough runner," Reynolds said. "He just kept those legs going. It was a great effort by Chris (Ross) and Brooke (Scantling), too. All three of those guys and our offensive line did a great job to get things moving in the second half." 

Brooke Scantling finished with nine carries for 61 yards.

Aaron Clark completed 4-of-9 attempts through the air with 51 yards passing and an interception. 

Chris Ross reeled in four of those passes for 50 yards, and added 20 yards on the ground on five attempts.

Union will take on Grant Union (2-0) at 7 p.m. Friday.
