#3 Union Steam-Rolls Hermann: Mid Missouri High School Football

Bearcats at Wildcats
 September 14, 2011

By Bill Battle Missourian Sports Editor
Coming close to reaching another school record, the Union Wildcats turned up the scoring Friday night to defeat Hermann on homecoming, 70-14.
Union’s program record for most points in a game came against Hermann in 2007 during a 77-55 win. The Wildcats (4-0, 2-0) nearly repeated that feat against Hermann (0-4, 0-4). However, Hermann’s offense couldn’t keep up.
The Wildcats really turned on the heat during a 1:22 span late in the second quarter, scoring 21 points during that time. That turned a 21-6 game into a 48-6 rout by the halftime festivities.
Union never trailed in the game and started the scoring with a three-yard run by Steven Jones with 7:26 left in the first quarter. The extra-point kick failed, bouncing off the left upright, and Union led, 6-0.
The Wildcats were back in action when Chris Savage connected with Tyler Johnson for a 53-yard touchdown pass with 5:10 to go in the quarter. Ryan Coons ran for the two-point conversion to make it 14-0.
Hermann fumbled on its first play from scrimmage after the kickoff, another recurring theme on the night, and the Wildcats took advantage of the short field to score again with 3:14 to play in the quarter. Coons caught a four-yard pass from Savage for the score. The extra-point kick failed and it was 20-0 at the end of one quarter.
Hermann got on the board early in the second quarter. Nick Koenig caught a 12-yard pass from Justin Wurtz with 11:08 left in the half. The Bearcats attempted a two-point run, but failed. Union’s lead was cut to 21-6.
Union got right back to work. Moving down the field on a pass from Savage to Tyler King, the Wildcats got a big run by Ryan Baser up the field to the one-yard line. Baser scored on the next play from one yard out and Savage hit Coons for the conversion to make it 28-6.
Union’s big run hit late in the half. Baser scored from 13 yards out with 3:48 left in the half. Logan Williams kicked the extra point and Union was up, 35-6.
Hermann again fumbled the ball deep in its own territory, and that set up a 16-yard pass from Savage to Narvell Smith with 2:48 left in the half. Williams kicked the extra point to make it 42-6.
After Williams returned an interception to the Hermann 20, Jones ran in for the final score of the half from 20 yards out with 2:26 left. Williams kicked the extra point to make it 49-6.
Even with the running clock in the second half, Union still found time to score 21 more points while Hermann added another score.
Union hosts Ft. Zumwalt East next week. The Wildcats lost their only regular season game to Zumwalt East last season on a play in the closing seconds. Hermann hosts Owensville in a Four Rivers Conference game which also is the Gasconade County Bowl. Kickoff both places will be at 7 p.m.
