UNIONTOWN, Kan. -- Visiting Eureka remained undefeated on the season by spoiling Uniontown's Homecoming here Friday night, 45-8.
The Eagles fell to 0-3 on the season and have been outscored 116-20. But, according to head coach Chad Stroud, this was a night where Uniontown could have given themselves a chance to win.
"To be honest, we had them scouted very well," Stroud said. "They didn't do anything we weren't expecting. But we simply didn't show up to play football tonight. How a bunch of young men can do that on a Friday night, especially on our homecoming, is beyond me. That's what I was most disappointed with tonight."
Uniontown had one of its players suffer an injury during warm-ups and fumbled the ball away to Eureka on its first offensive play of the night. And mistakes were not something the Eagles could afford against the Tornadoes, who improved to 3-0.
"Eureka is a very solid team," Stroud said. " Tyler Spore is a good, athletic tailback and they have 11 guys get to the ball defensively. We have opened the season with three very good football teams. If we can just find a way to stay healthy, hopefully that will pay off when we get into district play."
Garrett Murrow scored Uniontown's only touchdown. Trenton Miller scored the 2-point conversion.
Eureka gained 338 yards of total offense, rushing for 233 of those yards on 28 carries. Uniontown had 111 total yards, rushing 27 times for 102 yards. Jordan Woods gained 49 yards on 10 carries and also had an interception on defense.
Miller had 8 tackles for the Eagles while Zach Travis had 7.
The Eagles will be on the road next week, facing McAuley Catholic in Joplin. The Warriors beat fellow Three Rivers League school Northeast 45-6 Friday night to get their first victory of the season.
