Union All Over Fort Vancouver 49-0

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 8, 2009

The Union Titans went into Kiggins Bowl Thursday night and took on a Fort Vancouver Trappers team who was missing 6 starters due to injury or illness. The Titans had little trouble versus the short handed Trappers in a 49-0 3A GSHL league game.

Titans QB Brandon Weller threw 3 TD’s in the win, including a pass to RB Nathaniel Penaranda who broke multiple tackles on his way to the end zone.

Union WR Mitch Saylor did not play in the game. Saylor was not injured but keep out for precaution and to allow others to play in the game.

With the win, Union improves to 5-1 and 2-0 in league play. The Titans will be back at Kiggins Bowl next Friday to play Hudson’s Bay (1-4).

With the loss, Fort Vancouver falls to 2-3 and 0-2 in league play. The Trappers play at Columbia River (1-4) next Friday.

    Man that was painful. I have to say Unions third string is better than most 3A teams 1st string.

    Is anyone else seeing a pattern here? It’s like everytime Union plays they dominate. Just like I said they would until the Camas game… I am like some sort of football wizard!

    But has anyone else noticed Saylor isn’t scoring any TD’s? What up wit dat?!

    Mitch Saylor hasn’t played much and didn’t play at all last night due to injury.

    Well that sucks.

    What is he suffering from? Will he be back soon?

    Mitch has had a bad back all year. He got hit pretty hard in the EHS game, landed weird against Foothill and is really trying to get healthy by playoffs. He is needed to continue Union’s dominance and goals. I also hear this is a big concern from scouts. Might need back surgery?

    does anyone know how any total yeard fort had in this game?? im curious since they didnt score

  7. greater saint on October 10th, 2009 3:30 pm

    how many total yards*

  8. Trapper Fan on October 10th, 2009 3:59 pm

    Fort had approximately 65 yards rushing (ouch) but 9 of 20 passing for a whopping 72 yards passing. About 130 total offense (minus both normal starting running backs home with the flu, weren’t even at the game or in school). Wouldn’t have made much of a difference as Union’s line was dominant.

    Mitch Saylor will not need back surgery i would know.
