Union City — In their last game of the season, the Union City Bears faced off with the West Middlesex Red Raiders. Despite extreme efforts by the Bears, the Red Raiders took over for a 34-14 victory.

The first half appeared to be going in UC’s favor with Gavin Henry, Miles Parker and Brayden Kinney moving the Bears down the field. Eventually, West Middlesex’s defense forced the Bears to turn the play over on downs.

The Red Raiders used their workhorse Clayton Parrish on the ground for a big 50-yard run. The Bears’ defense held West Middlesex to 3rd and 1; however, a quarterback sneak from Jake Bowen gave the Reds a 1st down and more. Parrish dominated the fields putting West Middlesex on the scoreboard – 6-0.

On the second drive, Hornaman utilized Henry and Kinney attempting to retaliate. West Middlesex’s defense was on the prowl again stopping the dynamic duo. This gave the Red Raiders a chance to put the ball in Parrish’s hands. On second down, Parrish ran for a 76-yard TD. With 10:55 left in the first half, the score was 12-0.

The Bears next attempt was more successful. Henry and Kinney stayed on the ground to eventually set up a scoring play. On 3rd and 4, Hornaman gave the ball to Henry, the O-Line opened a hole and he was gone for a 30-yard TD. UC lessened their deficit 14-8.

Union City’s defense fought back against Parrish and the offense. Matt Long hit hard to slow down the Reds’ momentum. West Middlesex was in the endzone again, but an offensive pass interference penalty offset the touchdown. Bowen’s pass to Parrish quickly reversed that mistake. On their two-point conversion attempt, Long met the QB to keep the score 20-8.

UC did not last long on offense as their play attempts were stopped by the Reds. The Bears’ defense started strong with a big stop from Henry for a loss of seven. Once again Bowen put the ball in Parrish’s possession to advance their lead 26-8. The Bears were given another chance to bridge the gap before halftime ended. West Middlesex’s defense did not allow that to happen. Bowen snatched Hornaman’s throw out of the air to bring the Reds’ offense back on the field.

The Bear’s defense could not stop the Red Raiders. On a 4th down play, Logan Hurley caught the ball to score before the end of the half. West Middlesex was now five for five.

The second half had an eventful start. First, the Bears’ put a stop to the Red Raiders’ scoring streak forcing a punting situation. On kickoff, Parker appeared to fumble the return with a recovery by the Reds. Parker argued that he was down, and the play was over. After discussion, the refs decide to have the ball re-kicked. Two penalties were called on the next try. The Bears’ were called for roughing the kicker (a 15-yard penalty) and the Reds’ for unsportsmanlike conduct. The penalty on Union City was enough to give West Middlesex the first down and another chance with the ball.

Henry came up with a big sack to stop the Red Raiders. William Burgess was in on the coverage on 3rd and 15, forcing the offense to punt away again. On offense, UC seemed more alive gaining more yards on each run. Still, their defense stopped the Bears on 4th and 5.

Parrish came out strong for the Reds’ moving them down to the 9-yard line. On 1st and goal, Long came in with big hit on Parrish and a 2-yard loss. Parker stepped up to intercept the ball from Bowen and the Red Raiders.

UC’s field position was not ideal with them nearly in the endzone. On 4th down, a bad snap gave West Middlesex a safety for two points. This would be the only points the Bears allow West Middlesex to achieve.

The Bears’ defense held on as they started to read the Red Raiders to shut them down. After moving the Reds’ to 3rd and long, UC read the offense’s screen play. Henry, Long and Hedderick met the QB quickly to bring up 4th down.

Union City could not compute on their drive. Hornaman and the gang were shut down on a four and out. This did not stop UC’s defense from playing hard. The defenders stopped Parrish in his tracks and Long ended the drive for a big sack on Bowen.

Hornaman threw the ball down field to an illegal receiver getting a penalty on the Bears. On second down, Henry returned UC to the original line of scrimmage. The O-Line created a big hole for Henry to inch the Bears down the field. Their progress was set back after a chop block penalty was called. UC’s offense could not make up the yardage and punted the ball away.

Another penalty on the Bears helped push the Reds’ closer to the endzone. The defense was never discouraged as they continued to fight back. Krause had excellent coverage on 3rd down to stull West Middlesex. An incomplete pass by Bowen forced the Reds’ to punt away again.

The energy within the Bears kept their momentum going from defense to offense. Before the end of the game, Parker picked up 10-yards for a big 1st down. Hornaman pitched the ball to Kinney, and he was gone down the field. With six more points on the board, the final score was 34-14.

The loss brought Union City’s season to a close with a 7-4 record. West Middlesex will be playing the Farrell Steelers Friday November 9th at home.
