The Panthers went to half up 35-7, but PCA did not let up and they made this a ball game, before ultimately falling short.

The Panthers now sit at 6-1 (2-0) after this big region win and have averaged 47.4 PPG over their current 5-game win streak. PCA now falls to 2-5 (0-2) on the year after their 2nd half efforts came up short.

Team Notes

735 yards of offense for the Panthers. 735 yards. This Union offense is ridiculously good as they have scored more than 42 points over the course of their 5-game win streak. Caiden Tanner accounted for 7 of the 8 Panthers TDs. Tanner was 24/31 for 403 yards and 4 TDs in the air and he added 59 yards on 16 carries and added 3 more TDs on the ground. Braylen Rader was a nice compliment for his QB as he added 210 yards and one rushing TD on 17 carries while also bringing in a receiving TD. Griff Young led the way for the Union receivers as he had 8 catches for 138 yards and 2 TDs while Jensen Goble has 8 catches for 130 yards and 1 TD. Caiden Tanner did turn the ball over twice with an INT and a lost fumble. The Union defense will need to play better down the stretch, but this Panthers team is primed for a run at the region title.

PCA gave it their best, especially with a big 42-point 2nd half, but unfortunately Union had to many playmakers for the Storm to handle. Neither Maxpreps nor Hudl had individual stats posted for Providence Christian Academy.

Look Ahead

PCA will host the Fellowship Christian Paladins (4-3) who are looking to remain undefeated in region as they move to 2-0 after a big win over Athens Academy 28-6.

As for Union they will host East Jackson who sits at 4-3 (1-1). The Eagles who are coming off a Bye Week will look to slow the Panthers offense and play spoiler next Friday night.
