No TEC defense – aside from the Lincoln Golden Eagles – has allowed the Union County (0-4, 0-4) offense to score through the first four games of the season. The latest setback for the Patriots was Friday's 48-0 home loss to the Hagerstown Tigers.
HHS (3-1) put up 20 points in the opening quarter and added 21 more in the next 12 minutes. With a running clock in the second half, the teams went scoreless in the third quarter ahead of the Tigers tacking on a touchdown in the fourth.
Hagerstown's offensive numbers weren't gaudy despite the lopsided final. The stripes totaled 383 yards as senior quarterback Kayne Ervin passed for 169 of those and 2 TDs – one to Isaac Schmitz and another to Anthony Kelley. Junior Grant Semler rushed for 121 and three scores. Collin Beaty and Aiden Grover had other Tiger TDs.
The homecoming opponent Friday is Winchester, 2-2 after a 2-0 start to the campaign.
