Looking to upset Union, the De Soto Dragons scored first Friday night at home.

However, the rest of the game belonged to the Wildcats (4-2, 2-1), as they blasted De Soto (1-5), 46-6.

“It was critical to jump on them and score on our first drive to keep them from getting into the game,” said Union Head Coach Erick Webster.

Union used De Soto’s touchdown just under two minutes into the game as a wakeup call. Union scored 24 points in the first quarter, added 13 in the second and capped it off with a touchdown and two-point conversion in the third quarter to roll to the victory.

Union now holds fourth place in the Class 4 District 3 standings with 37.34 points, 3.17 points ahead of Priory and two points behind Sullivan.

Union returns home to host the Owensville Dutchmen (1-5) in a Four Rivers Conference game Friday night at 7 p.m.

Can’t Stop Hulsey

De Soto had difficulty slowing down Union junior quarterback Blake Hulsey.

As a passer, Hulsey went 31-37 for 379 yards and five touchdowns. He also passed for two two-point conversions.

On the ground, Hulsey carried the ball nine time for 37 yards. While he didn’t score a touchdown, he did rush for two two-point conversions.

“Blake had another big game, even though we brought our run-pass back to balance a little bit. We have been about 63 percent pass and got down to 57 percent,” Webster said. “We threw to 11 different receivers which has always been a goal for us, sometimes it’s tough for us to balance getting the ball to our play makers versus spreading the ball around forcing defenses to defend the whole field.”

Webster said Hulsey has done an exceptional job finding his receivers this season.

“Blake has done a fantastic job of following his reads indiscriminately and putting the ball where it needs to go,” Webster said. “He does have many receivers that we can trust for a catch.”

Besides Hulsey, Ethan Hughes attempted seven passes and completed five of them for 42 yards. He did throw an interception.

On the receiving side, Logan Bellamy caught nine passes for 97 yards and one touchdown.

TreLin Edwards grabbed five passes for 46 yards and one touchdown. Jobie Richardson pulled in four passes for 58 yards and one touchdown. Jake Siddens caught four passes for 51 yards. Jacob Carman had four catches for 41 yards.

Nick Maher caught three passes for 38 yards and one touchdown. John Prosser had two receptions for 40 yards and one touchdown. Tyler Pace caught two passes for 21 yards.

Wes Narup grabbed one pass for 15 yards. Tate Bell caught one pass for 11 yards and Zach Lanham had one catch for three yards.

On the ground, 10 different Wildcats carried the ball.

Prosser was the leading rusher with nine carries for 71 yards and one touchdown, Union’s only rushing touchdown on the night.

Edwards rushed three times for 24 yards. Drew Reed carried three times for eight yards. Hughes had three carries for three yards.

Maher ran once for five yards. Tyler Brown carried once for four yards.

Bellamy and Lukis Ladymon each ran once for no yardage. Brandon Lefholz lost three yards on his carry.

Defensively, Bellamy and Logan Grainger each recovered fumbles. Casey Peth and Deric Purnell recorded sacks. Prosser intercepted a pass.

Maher led the way with eight total tackles. Carman had seven solo stops to lead the team in that category.

Bellamy and Logan Meyer each made six tackles while Joe Lasky posted five.

“I cant say there were any really critical plays,” Webster said about the game. “It would be accurate to say that we were methodical about our approach. Running over 75 snaps we had several 20- and 30-yard gains but didn’t really have very many big plays besides a couple of screens, mostly we caught the ball ran for about 10, and got tackled by the first defender. We have several routes that hit between 10-15 yards and a five yard run put it at 20.”

The Wildcats return home this week to host the Owensville Dutchmen.

Owensville Preview

After winning last Friday for the first time since 2011, the Owensville Dutchmen are looking to turn things into a winning streak.

“Obviously it’s a big match up,” Webster said. “The scenario is setting up with their first win and distractions with our homecoming. They are riding high on confidence from a big win and there is the danger of distraction from our week of homecoming. Our kids will be amped up so our week will be about managing emotions.

Owensville (1-5, 1-2) edged Pacific last Friday in Owensville, 17-14.

Prior to that, the Dutchmen lost 26-6 to Borgia, 55-13 to Blair Oaks, 30-13 to Salem, 15-6 to St. James and 66-21 to Hermann.

Webster knows the key to beating Owensville is jumping on them early.

“For us to beat the Dutchmen we will have to avoid turning the ball over, protect Hulsey and get a couple of stops on defense,” Webster said. A fast start isn’t as important to us as maintaining our overall speed of play.”

Jesse Lowder quarterbacks the Dutchmen and he’s completed 19 of 62 pass attempts for 268 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions.

Tristan Crofford has run 22 times for 211 yards while Devon Dowler has 49 carries for 167 yards and two scores and Matt Pohlmann has run 32 times for 87 yards.

Through the air, Ben Angell is the top receiver with 12 receptions for 224 yards.

Defensively, Chris Dolles is the team’s top tackler with 36 total stops. He also has one sack, one fumble recovery and one interception.

Dowler has recorded 28 total stops while Luke Jahnsen has 26 stops.

Crofford is the team’s top kick and punt returner and has 450 return yards on 24 attempts.
