The Union County High School Tigers got all their scoring in at the half, up by 21-0 against the Keystone Heights High School Indians, which is a good thing because they had a sloppy second half full of penalties. Three of those came in their first five plays.

The Indians finally made it into the end zone two-thirds of the way into the fourth quarter, but it was too little too late as the Tigers won 21-7.

Both coaches mentioned injuries on their respective teams. Union County’s Ronny Pruitt attributed his team’s playing to some injuries coming into the game, but praised his team for fighting back.

KHHS Indians' Anton Noble was quarterback Blake Valenzuela's go-to man throughout the game.

Keystone Heights suffered some “bumps and bruises,” according to coach Chuck Dickinson, who was glad it wasn’t a district game. Next week it is and he told his team to be ready to hit it hard on Monday.

Union County’s first district game is next month
