|Three Oaks rallies |
to beat UCMS
Three Oaks returned the opening kickoff of the second half back for a touchdown and then converted an onside kick into another score in rallying from a halftime deficit and beating Union City 22-20 in middle school football action Tuesday night.
The Golden Tornadoes (3-2) jumped out to a 20-0 halftime lead but then saw that margin trimmed to 20-14 before even touching the ball on offense in the third quarter.
The home team then added another score and two-point conversion about midway through the fourth quarter. UC took over with about four minutes to play in the game and drove downfield before stalling and failing to score.
Case Cook put UC on the board first on an eight-yard reception from Will Sisco in the opening quarter. Jacob Hyde added the two-point conversion for an 8-0 UC lead.
The Twisters then tacked on two more scores in the second frame, Hyde with a two-yard run and Taj Reid with a 13-yard scamper.
Cook and Jamison Blackwell each had eight tackles, while Hyde and Will Harris were credited with seven stops.
UC hosts Humboldt 6:30 Tuesday night.
