Turnovers Doom Titans In Semifinals As Bellevue Tops Union 19-13
Written by Bryan Levesque on November 27, 2009
The Union Titans defense played one heck of a football game tonight.
The mighty Bellevue Wolverines were held without an offensive TD but still defeated Union 19-13 in the WIAA Semifinals.
After trailing 6-0 at the half, Union gave up a 97 yard KO return for a TD to Braynden Van Ackeren and found themselves in a 13-0 hole early in the third.
Union QB Brandon Weller found Mitch Saylor from 35 yards out to cut the lead to 13-6 before the extra point was blocked.
Two more FG by Sciabica and the Titans were down 19-6 with only 6:10 in the game.
The Titans were able to drive 62 yards in 6 plays when Nataniel Penaranda scored on a 4 yard run to cut the lead to 19-13 with 1:19 to go.
The Union onside magice however was all gone as the kick went right into the hands of Van Ackeren and the win to the Wolverines.
With the win Bellevue improves to 11-2. The Wolverines will play Liberty next Friday for the WIAA 3A Championship.
Union drops to 11-2 with the loss. The Titans season is over.
