The Vikings drive included 20 plays and took up 11 minutes of the first half.

In the second half Union would find their grove and stop the Vikings time management. Union stays undefeated as they roll 29 to 14.

Wes Burnside would finish the game with three touchdowns and Trev Hadachek would score one as well.
