Pats stung by Jackets

The Morristown Yellow Jackets blew into town this week and stung Union County, 66-46.

The Jackets picked up their 19th win of the season against a single loss. Four-of-five Yellow Jacket starters scored in double figures.

Mason Miller’s 15 points and Cameron Donovan’s 10 points and six rebounds led Union County.

Morristown broke a 9-9 first quarter tie score with a pair of 3-pointers and back-to-back steals to go up by eight at the first stop.

The Patriots could get no closer but continued to play their game after a second quarter let down.

The Yellow Jackets won the second quarter, 14-7 and won the remaining two quarters, but not as easily.

UC came within three of the Jackets in the third quarter (16-13) and then played even in the final eight minutes. Although coming close and breaking even did little to catch up, he Pats never gave in or gave up. It was a good game and the better score won.

“We knew they were good,” UC coach Jesse Moses said earlier this week.

Next opponent

Union County plays at Northeastern on Friday, Feb. 9 and travels to East Central on Tuesday, Feb. 13. The Patriots wind up the TEC season at Union City on Friday, Feb. 16.
