Union 44, Mountain View 0

By , Columbian Assistant Sports Editor

When teams face Union this season, they might have to pick their poison.

The Titans had their share of stars in a non-league win over Mountain View.

Leon Siofele, Thomas Lampkin, Ethan Beniga, Caleb Browning and Nolan Henry all shined in the lopsided win.

And then there was the offensive line and the Titans’ defense.

Siofele rushed for 187 yards and a touchdown and Thomas Lampkin had a big all-around game as Union rolled to a non-league win.

Lampkin got Union on the board in the first quarter on a 55-yard touchdown pass from Nolan Henry.

Siofele’s 55-yard touchdown run in the second extended the lead to 13-0.

After Browning intercepted a pass later in the second, Lampkin, off a double-reverse flanker pass, threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Beniga to make it 20-0.

Lampkin caught a 14-yard touchdown from Henry in the second half. And he added a 52-yard interception return and a 35-yard punt return.

Beniga finished with six catches for 110 yards. Henry completed 9 of 16 passes for 147 yards, and Browning rushed for 85 yards on 10 carries as the Union offensive line opened holes.

Mountain View was limited to 104 yards of total offense, 47 of which came on the Thunder’s final possession after Union led 44-0.
