The Panther’s Slay the Redskins on Senior Night


Friday Night the Union County Panthers hosted the Social Circle Redskins at Mike Memorial Stadium in the final regular season home game for the Panthers. Since it was the last home game the Panthers had senior night. The Panthers will be graduating 13 seniors this year including key defensive players, Chayton Schafer and Jackson Colwell. They will also graduate key offensive players, Coleson Daniel and Kannon Hemphill. After the festivities had finished it was time for the Panthers to hammer down. The Panthers started fast and did not give the Redskins a chance.

The Redskins would get the ball first and would not get anything going, which resulted in them punting to the Panthers. It was time for the high powered Union County offense to take the field. Pierson would march the Panthers down the field and call his own number for a 5 yard rushing touchdown. Social would take the field and still not get anything going which would be the outcome all night thanks to the bickwall defense. Union’s next two touchdowns were both 70+ yards and both were passing touchdowns. The first would go to Kyle Morlock for 77 yards and and the second would go to Sawyer Drake for 74 yards. This would bring a end to the quarter with the score 21-0. Union would not miss a beat in the second quarter. Kannon Hemphill would catch a 36 yard touchdown from Pierson Allison to take the score to 28-0. Then Cayden Rich would score his first ever varsity touchdown from 52 yards out from Pierson Allison. At the break the score would be Union 35, Social Circle 0.

Social Circle would opt to have a running clock in the second half because of the 30 points rule. Union would get some young guys into the mix. Logan Helcher would find Zion Ross in the 3rd quarter to bring the score to 35-0 heading into the fourth. The Union County young guys would hold their own and only give up 7 points to the Redskins against their starters. At the final buzzard the Panthers would be victorious 42-7. Now the Panthers will look towards the Region Championship this Friday against the Wildcats of Rabun County. They will travel to Tiger,GA for a 7:30 kickoff against a very good Rabun team. Good Luck Panthers!!
