BOYS

UNION 68, TIDIOUTE 46

A hot start by Union was too much to overcome for Tidioute in a 68-46 setback to Union on Monday.

Lucas Bowser poured in 31 points for the Golden Knights, including 15 in the first quarter as they jumped out to a 29-7 lead on the Bulldogs.

“They pressed and we didn’t really turn the ball over, we were just stone cold and they hit everything,” said Tidioute coach Terry Cotterman. “After that, we settled down and played consistent the rest of the game. The kids gave good effort.”

Jared Veasy had a big game for the Bulldogs, scoring 20 points and pulling down seven rebounds, while Patrick Shileds had 15 points, seven boards and four blocks.

The Bulldogs return to action Thursday, hosting Forest Area.
