Non-league football: Union 50, Bonney Lake 14

Published:

 

The Titans executed the two-minute drill to perfection to end the first half, then blew out Bonney Lake in the second half for the non-league road victory.

Leon Siofele rushed for 169 yards and two scores, and quarterback Nolan Henry threw for 157 yards and ran for three touchdowns.

The Titans went 60 yards in less than 90 seconds, capping the drive with a 4-yard TD run from Henry to go up 28-7 at the half.

The Titans then carried that momentum into the third quarter, with three touchdowns and a safety.

"We were able to move the ball up the field all night," Union coach Cale Piland said. "Once our defense settled in, they played pretty well."

Union (3-1) opens 4A Greater St. Helens League play next week against Heritage.

"We've got to continue to grow and develop," Piland said.

Henry completed 13 of 22 passes. Tyler Dionne had five catches for 87 yards.
