The Union Redskins opened district play with a 35-9 win against the Edmond North Huskies.
The No. 1 Redskins (4-0 overall, 1-0 in Class 6A-I District 2) were led by wideout AK Wilson, who finished the night with four catches for 76 yards and 10 rushing yards. Wilson was also named the player of the game.
“We had a lot of mistakes tonight,” Wilson said. “We finished the game the way we wanted to, by scoring more than 15 points, but we have to clean up the mistakes before we play the Owasso Rams next week.”
Union running back Darius Boone, Jr., scored two touchdowns and finished the night with 16 carries for 95 yards. Receiver CJ Moore had four receptions for 60 yards and also scored two touchdowns for the Redskins.
Redskins quarterback Peyton Thompson threw for 172 yards.
Not everything went perfectly for the Redskins Friday night – they fumbled the ball four times on offense.
“We are going to have plenty to work on this week in practice,” Union head coach Kirk Fridrich said. “It’s still early in the season, but I’m proud of the way our defense stepped up when we needed them to and we got a district win on the road.”
The only touchdown for the Huskies came late in the when quarterback Ben MacNaughton found wide receiver Logan Taber for a 7-yard pass.
MacNaughton went 16-of-22 and ended the game with 97 passing yards. Taber had eight receptions for 45 yards.
The Huskies fall to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in district play.
The biggest test this season for Union will be next Friday when they host district rival Rams (3-0).
“We are excited about the opportunity to play Owasso,” Fridrich said. “We will scout them out Friday and we are looking forward to a great game next week.”
