Eagles fall at Eureka; McAuley next

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

EUREKA -- Uniontown scored first but couldn't get on the board again as the Eagles (1-2) fell to Eureka in a steady drizzle here Friday night, 26-8

"We were in control of the game early," Uniontown head coach Chad Stroud said. "We recovered an onside kick to start the game and scored on that drive to go ahead."

Jordan Woods scored the lone Eagle touchdown. He finished the night with 75 yards rushing to lead Uniontown.

Eureka scored on a 67-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter.

"We were on the verge of answering with a scoring drive and fumbled deep in their territory," Stroud said. "Eureka then took the ensuing possession and scored to go up 14-8. It was a big momentum swing that we never really bounced back from."

Two fourth-quarter scores, one on a run and the other on an interception return, created the final margin.

"We didn't play all four quarters with the same intensity we had last week," Stroud said. "Whether that was due to the weather or an emotional let down after a big win over our league rival (Oswego) last week or what, I'm not sure. Give Eureka credit, they won in every aspect of the game."

Uniontown plays its Homecoming game Friday night against McAuley Catholic of Joplin. The Warriors shut out Northeast, 42-0, Friday.
