Union upsets #8 Maquoketa

Posted:

Jay Scheel set the pace as Union took down #8 Maquoketa 21-13 to advance to the class 3A semifinals.

Down 6-0, Scheel sparked the Knights with an electrifying 90 yard punt return (which actually covered about 140 yards) to put Union on top 7-6 in the first quarter.  In the second quarter, Scheel broke free on a quarterback keeper, going 76 yards as Union led 14-6 at the halftime break.

In the second half, the Union sophomore proved he could do it with his arm as well hitting Bradley Gallup on a 4 yard touchdown strike to put the nail in the coffin.

Defensively the Knights held the Cardinals at bay by creating turnovers.  Maquoketa lost a total of 3 fumbles deep in Union territory.

The Knights advance to the state semi-finals where they'll face unbeaten ADM next Monday.
