Eagles' season comes to close

Friday, October 28, 2011

UNIONTOWN -- Uniontown's football season came to an end here Thursday night as Central Heights snuffed the Eagles' slim hopes of making the Class 3A playoffs, 27-20.

Uniontown's season ended at 4-5.

"I'm very proud of these young men," Uniontown head coach Chad Stroud said. "They played incredibly hard when we had nothing to play for tonight but pride against a solid Central Heights team."

The Eagles outgained the Vikings 331 yards to 269. Zach Travis passed for 102 yards and rushed for 77 more. Jordan Woods ran for 78 yards and a score. Brenton Esslinger recorded 11 tackles while Jay Hierholzer had nine.

The Vikings (5-4) led 14-13 at the half, then scored twice in the third quarter.

"We had a long touchdown pass called back early in the third quarter," Stroud said. "That turned out to be a huge swing in momentum. We ended the game coming up one yard short on fourth and goal from the 2-yard line.

"I want to specifically mention the names of our seniors who have played all four years: Brenden Wood, Robert Kuns, Seth Sympson, Max Labbe, Josh Beerbower, Zach Travis, and Jordan Woods
