MERIDIAN —     Union just keeps on winning. The Yellowjackets put the first points on the board Friday night versus Choctaw Central and never looked back.

    Union's Tre Bogan scored on a 13-yard rush early in the first quarter. The two-point-conversion was no good.

    The Yellowjacket offense heated up in the second quarter starting with a 65-yard touchdown run from Adrian Campbell. Bogan pushed in the two-point conversion giving the Yellowjackets a 13-0 lead.

    Choctaw Central answered with a 3-yard touchdown run. That would be Choctaw's only point on the night. The extra point was blocked.

    Union managed two more scores before the half.

    The first was a 28-yard interception returned for a touchdown by a Laviel Wells. The two-point conversion was no good. Union followed up with a 55-yard touchdown pass from Bogan to Campbell. Bogan connected with Jake Rawson on the two-point conversion leaving the score at 27-6 at halftime.

    The final Union score came in the third quarter on a 10-yardpass from Bogan to Rawson. The final two-point conversion was no good.

    Union walked away with a 34-6 victory and a 2-0 overall record. Choctaw fell to 0-2 overall.

    The Yellowjackets will be back in action next week at Sebastopol.
