Ike bounces back against Union City

UNION CITY – What a difference a night makes.

One day after fading late in the fourth quarter against Iroquois, Eisenhower outscored Union City 26-9 in the fourth quarter Wednesday en route to a 75-47 Region 3 road win.

Jaydon Hayes led the way with a game-high 22 points and now needs just 12 for 1,000 in his career, while Tajah Warren scored 18 for the second consecutive game.

“Offensively we shared the ball well and looked good against all of their defenses,” said Eisenhower coach Ryan Williams. “Could have gave up less points to make the coach happier.”

Hayes scored eight points in the final eight minutes, while Cyrus Hazeltine also knocked down a big 3.

It was a big win for the Knights (5-6 overall, 3-2 Region 3) as they look to keep pace in the top half of the Region 3 standings.

Zack Fincher was also in double figures scoring for the second consecutive game with 12.

Ian Wienczkowski led Union City (6-5, 3-2) with 18 points.

The Knights now get a bit of a break from the region grind when they host county rival Sheffield on Friday.
