Written by Bryan Levesque on October 16, 2010

Union jumped out to a 35-0 lead seconds into the 2nd quarter and never looked back in their 56-3 home win over Battle Ground.

The Titans scored touchdowns the first 5 times they touched the ball Friday night. Short fields keep the Titans from racking up larger yardage but RB Zak Browning still managed to find the end zone 3 more times on just 7 runs. Brandon Brody-Heim scored twice on 8 carries. Both runner had less than 85 yards rushing in the win. QB Kaben Hunphrey-Butler was 7/9 for 85 yards and threw touchdown passes to Ray Burney and Gabe Rego.

Battle Ground was the first team to score on Union’s defense since the 2nd quarter of week 3 when kicker Mac Brandenburger hit from 33 yards out in the 2nd quarter. The Titans went 194 minutes and 12 seconds between scores allowed.

With the win Union improves to 6-1 on the season and 2-0 in league play. The Titans will play Evergreen (1-6 1-1) Friday at McKenzie Stadium as the road team 8:00 p.m. Battle Ground falls to 1-6 on the season with the loss and 0-3 in league play. The tigers will host Heritage (1-6 0-2) Friday at District Stadium 7:00 p.m.

    Through 7 weeks, Union has allowed the fewest points in the entire state (4A) (3A for that matter too) with 58, Curis is next with 64, then Bellarmine Prep (65), Ferris (71), Chiawana (77), Richland (78).

    Does Union have the best defense in the state? Well, clearly they are in the conversation.

    I’ll be interested to see what happens to the power rankings after this week.

    Impressive. Where do you find stats like this?

  3. victory on October 16th, 2010 2:33 pm

    Last year after 7 weeks Union had given up 54 points, looks like somethings never change. Good going Union D!

  4. victory on October 16th, 2010 2:41 pm

    Sorry! I miss counted, last year at this time Union had given up 60 points.

    you said it will be interesting to see how the power rankings change this week… let me remind you that it was battle ground

    Union showed once again that their defense is pretty much impregnable. The same cannot be said of Camas.

  7. greater saint on October 17th, 2010 12:16 am

    seems to me that camas does their work in the first half then when the team hasnt put up a fight they slow their role which allows for teams to score in the 2nd half

  8. greater saint on October 17th, 2010 12:18 am

    union just demolishes teams which is good but i think camas is thinking of the future they dont want people to get hurt in the 4th when there up by 60 points

  9. uhs on October 17th, 2010 2:40 pm

    or maybe union takes their players out in the 4th too, just like they did last year.. but they just demolish teams anyways becasue they have more depth and are better coached

    I was at McKenzie watching the games on Friday and Union did pull it’s starters in the 4th and play there JV. But, so did BG. I think Union does a great job at going after the win then playing their seconds and thirds. Bg realized that the Union seconds were in and started to substitute their seconds into the game.
    Both teams were very classy and great job to the coaches on both sides to keep their teams playing hard!

    Union continues to display a strong running game. Coach rego must be doing sometime right.
