The Union County Panthers made history Friday night. Football has been around Union County for 60 plus years and no team has ever won more then 9 games in a row. However, Friday night this would change.
Union County would travel to Lexington, Georgia Friday to take on the Ogelthorpe County Patriots. The Panthers came out with their foot on the pedal and did not let up all night. The Patriots would receive the ball, but the Panthers defense would force them to a 3-and-out. The high powered scoring Union County offense would take the field to get things rolling. They would march down the field and finish the drive off with a two yard touchdown run by Chad Buzzard. Union’s next offensive drive would be the exact same to put the Panthers ahead 14-0 after the 1st quarter. The second quarter the Patriots still could not get much going, but Union would pull away. A 21 yard touchdown run by Jonah Daniel, a 15 yard receiving touchdown, and a 8 yard rushing touchdown by Chayton Schafer would stretch the Panthers lead to 35-0 at the half.
The Panthers would start the second half just like they are started two other halfs this season. Kannon Hemphil would take the opening kickoff 60 yards to the house to bring the score to 42-0. Union would start making substitutions to get starters out and let young guys get some experience. Jonah Daniel would score another rushing touchdown in the fourth and Peyton Ivester would put one in the box also. The young guys on a defense would hold the Patriots to 0 points to give the Panthers their 2nd shut out of the season. History was made Friday Night by the Panthers after their 56-0 win. The Panthers have won 10 games straight breaking the previous school record of 9 straight. Congrats to Brian Alison and his Panthers.
