Jaydon Jones scored four touchdowns and the Union Titans showed off their depth in a 41-20 win at Wenatchee on Friday.

Union (6-2) was playing without quarterback Mitch Ratigan and receiver Tobias Merriweather.

Kellen Milliken, making his first start, completed 17 of 27 passes for 259 yards and three touchdowns.

Jones had touchdown runs of three and four years to put Union up 13-0 in the second quarter.

After Wenatchee scored to make 13-7, Jones returned a kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown, putting Union up 20-7.

Wenatchee rallied to tie the game 20-20 in the third quarter, but Union reclaimed the lead on a 66-yard pass from Milliken to Jones.

The Union defense then tightened up, and Milliken threw two touchdown passes to Taylor Lepak and AJ Attaran in the fourth quarter.
