Trailing most of the night, the Union basketball Wildcats found life in the second half against Warrenton Thursday.

Warrenton went on a 10-2 run over the final 1:48 to earn the victory, 55-47.

Union (1-3) led briefly in the third quarter, 34-33, and twice tied the Warriors in the fourth quarter.

But after earning a 45-45 tie, the Wildcats managed just two free throws down the stretch while the Warriors got hot once again.

In Thursday’s game, the Wildcats fought from behind most of the night. After tying it at 43-43 with 3:41 to play on a pair of Ashton Dehn free throws, Union couldn’t find a way to take the lead.

But the Wildcats had chances. After Brandon Ford blocked a shot, Union missed a pair of free throws with 3:12 to play.

Warrenton took the lead again on a TJ LaFaver basket with 2:13 to play but Blake Hulsey tied it again with a reverse layup at 45-45.

The game stayed tied until Warrenton’s Alec Tonioli hit one free throw with 1:48 to play to put the Warriors ahead to stay.

LaFaver hit a three-point basket with 1:22 left to make it 49-45.

Union’s final points came on a pair of free throws by Nick Ziegler with 1:09 remaining, cutting the lead to 49-47.
