Points elusive for Union Mine

WEST SACRAMENTO — Twice Friday the Union Mine High football team sat inside River City’s territory in the second half ready to score.

The Diamondbacks came away just once with points in their Sierra Valley Conference opener — not enough as the host Raiders posted the 28-8 victory.

Union Mine (0-5, 0-1) scored its only touchdown in the fourth quarter on Jake Horn’s 1-yard run up the middle and Brody Pearman’s toss to Tyler Parker on the 2-point conversion.

“We battled as good as we could battle,” Union Mine head coach Dave Johnson said.

On the other possession, Union Mine moved the ball to the Raiders’ 20 yard line before a fumble thwarted the drive. In the third quarter, the D’backs were turned away when Estaban Gonzales’ attempted a 41-yard field goal went wide.

“There were different times where we moved the ball up and down the field,” Johnson said.

River City finished with 249 rushing yards but had only 3 rushing yards in the second quarter.

“I thought we played hard on defense,” Johnson said. “I thought they did a pretty good job on the running game.”

Union Mine had 190 yards rushing and 62 passing for 252 combined offensive yards. Horn rushed 22 times for 84 yards and Matt Cathey had 11 carries for 51 yards. Pearman, behind the offensive line of center Josh Middleton, guards Justin Reiner and Cesar Rodriguez, tackles Hunter Cannon and Alex Balderston, wing back Zac Kraus and tight end Nate Brown, completed 6 of 12 passes for 62 yards.

In the junior varsity game, Union Mine posted a 36-28 win. With 1:09 left in the game, the D’backs’ Mason McLaury scored on a 2-yard run. Trevor Reed scored on the 2-point conversion.
