D’backs get first win

EL DORADO — Union Mine gave its fans a number of reasons to be excited during Friday’s Homecoming game, including the first win of the year in a 36-6 rout of Galt in Sierra Valley Conference action.

“I’m happy,” Diamondback coach Dave Johnson said. “It’s good for the guys to get a win here for our homecoming game in front of their friends and family. Everyone got a chance to play tonight, which is a nice thing to be able to do for everyone who came to watch them play.”
Union Mine’s offensive line set the table and pushed downfield to let starting quarterback Brody Pearman punch in a 1-yard touchdown run to open the scoring. Kicker Estaban Gonzalez’ point after attempt was good with 11 minutes remaining in the first.
A few possessions later, Jake Horn moved the chains with a series of great runs, muscling up against two and sometimes three Warriors without losing an inch. A couple of pass attempts by Pearman kept Galt on its heels, enough for Matt Cathey to rip off a 21-yard touchdown run with 5:05 left in the opening quarter.
“Jake Horn had another great night running,” Johnson said. “He was a big factor on the ground … and you really have to credit the offensive line for creating space. Our entire offensive line did a great job tonight.”
Galt began to flood the box but Johnson and Co. adjusted. With protection, Pearman dropped back, read the blitz and fired a 22-yard touchdown strike to Nate Brown for a 20-0 advantage.
A scoreless second quarter followed but Galt became increasingly frustrated as Union Mine’s defense applied the pressure. Defensive back Christian Beck proved himself an undeniable presence throughout the night with tackle after tackle to shut down Warrior hopes of pushing forward in the middle.
“Christian Beck will be named our Defensive Player of the Game,” Johnson said. “He’s just a sophomore this year, but had an incredible game and made plays for us throughout the night.”
The D’backs found the end zone again with just under 8 minutes remaining in the third quarter. After another great drive led by Pearman and Horn, Cathey took a handoff from 3 yards out and blasted through resistance to pay dirt. With another Gonzales extra point, the hosts sat on a 27-0 lead.
The final touchdown for Union Mine was a beauty as Tyler Parker stepped into the quarterback position and let fly to Nate Brown for a 16-yard completion on fourth down. Gonzalez tacked the final three on  with a field goal late in the fourth quarter.
