Union Summer League registration is underway
Philadelphia proved that they were the No. 1 team in Class 2A, as they defeated Union 56-6 Thursday night.
However, Union also got on the scoreboard for the first time since a 22-20 win over Noxapater on Sept. 1. Dustin Wellborn’s recovery of a Philadelphia fumble set up the drive.

PHILADELPHIA — A 14-0 hole at the beginning of the game proved to be the difference in Newton’s 36-22 loss to No. 1 Philadelphia.
For the second straight week, Newton (5-2, 0-2 in district) showed nerves against a top-notch Class 2A team, but this time, the Tigers battled back and gave the Tornadoes (7-0, 2-0) all they wanted.
Newton faced its biggest challenge of the season on Friday when the Tigers took on the Scott Central Rebels at E.L. Morgan Field.
In the matchup of unbeaten teams, the size of the Rebels’ offensive and defensive line proved to be the difference in a 35-12 homecoming loss for Newton.
