Union City Shut Out in Season Opener

By Chris Lash Publisher

The final score was 41-0, but according to all reports, the Bears played harder than the final score indicated. Reynolds, based in Greenville posted a shutout over the Bears 41-0 last Friday night.

“They played with a lot of heart. Never gave up! They can be very proud of their effort. The score didn’t represent the play.” said Jason McCray, who is broadcasting the games online via their Union City based McCray and Sons sports stream and website.

The Reynolds offense was fast and furious scoring 28 eight points in the second quarter alone on runs by two Raiders running backs Cole Toy and Sean O’Hara. Both backs scored on two touchdown runs. O’Hara scored on runs of 10 and 4 yards, respectively, before Toy added a 5-yard run and Marketis Steven scored on a 47-yard pass from Bryce McCloskey.

Aiden Mull wrapped up the scoring on a 5-yard run in the third. Reynolds totaled 373 offensive yards. The Raiders held Union City 134 total yards.

Leading the Bears effort were Austin Jaquith, Tallin Henry, and Logan Kesselring. Jaquith had 10 carries for 16 yards, while Kesselring had 15 carries for 63 yards and Henry carried seven times for 31 yards.
