In fact on the opening possession ns the entire first half...hold them to only 18-total yards and no first downs. At the end of the first quarter, the score remained six zero Knights.

Union's defense shut out the Falcons the entire first half holding them to only 18-total yards and no first downs.

A few minutes into the second quarter number...Union kept the momentum. Number 35 Kaleb Roach, of the Knights, took the hand off, avoided some tackles and found a huge hole off the right side. Roach had some key blocks along the way to a 70-yard touchdown scamper. 12-0 Union after the two point conversion failed.

Union wasn't finished. In fact a few minutes later from the Falcon 24-yard line, Union Quarterback Troy Hanus went to the air with a low tight spiral connecting with Britton Rolison in the endzone. The extra point made it 19-0 Union. The Knights would tack one one more touchdown and a 33-yard field goal making the score 29-0 at the half.  The Knights roll onto the quarterfinal round with a 42-0 win over A-P.
