GALT — At one point in the second quarter of Friday’s Sierra Valley Conference game at Erv Hatzenbuhler Field, the Union Mine football team was on Liberty Ranch’s toes.
Diamondback quarterback Scott McIntyre scored on a 6-yard run with 6:39 left in the quarter to cut the Hawks’ lead to 28-6. But the night belonged to Liberty Ranch as it scored two more touchdowns before halftime and kept flying in the second half with another two to register the 54-6 Sierra Valley Conference win.
Union Mine (0-7, 0-3) couldn’t contain Liberty Ranch (4-3, 2-1) signal caller Jacob Tibbetts, who completed 10-of-12 passes for 144 yards.
The D’backs have the bye week and return to action Friday, Oct. 19 when they take on Galt.
