Eagles fall to Raiders

FRONTENAC — A game Uniontown High squad found itself on the wrong side of a pair of refs’ calls Friday evening.
In the first, coming in the third quarter, host Frontenac High was driving toward a potential touchdown when the Eagles recovered what they thought was a fumble at their own five-yard line.
But the officials ruled that the fumble didn’t count because of an inadvertent whistle. The Raiders kept possession, then scored shortly thereafter to turn a 7-0 lead into a 13-0 advantage.
The next critical play came in the third quarter following the Eagles’ only score of the game, a 52-yard touchdown pass from Zach Travis to Ben Dixon.
Uniontown tried to retain possession with a squib kick, and appeared to have possession.
But the official ruled that a Uniontown player touched the football before it went the required 10 yards.
Frontenac ball.
The Raiders tacked on a late touchdown in a 19-7 win.
The loss drops the Eagles to 2-2 on the season. Uniontown hosts Oswego next Friday in their annual homecoming.
“The kids played hard but we made a lot of mistakes,” Eagle head coach Chad Stroud said. “We got a good effort from some guys who were dinged up.”
Jordan Woods led the Eagles with 94 yards rushing on 14 carries. Dixon pulled in 81 yards on four catches. Travis completed 6 of 13 passes for 87 yards.
Woods also had 11 tackles and an interception for Uniontown. Dixon had two picks and Matt Maloney chipped in with a fumble recovery. Tyler Hall added 11 tackles and Barry McAnulty had 10 stops.
