Nayvi Neilson had a busy day as the goalkeeper for Union as she fought off countless scoring attempts in a 7-0 Region 10 soccer win by Uintah on Tuesday in a match that could have had a higher score except for shots that bounced off the cross bar – no good.
Union switched into high gear as they passed and ran their way to a 37-20 win that sank the Park City Miners on Friday in Roosevelt. Union improves to 4-0 – best start since 1983 at Union (1983 Cats had a 7-0 start). The Cats will face defending state champion Judge on Friday at Judge Memorial in the Region 10 opener.
Con Amore Preview – The annual Con Amore Fishing Day is in need of “Buddies” to accompany children during four hours of fishing and outdoor fun.

Organizations, individuals and high school students who can help are invited to contact Tonia Steffey, 435-722-0884 (ext. 102), for information about the Sept. 30 event. Volunteer as a “Buddy” and put a smile on a child’s face.
Uintah packed its bags, warmed up the bus and went home as Union jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and coasted to a 41-21 win over the Utes in Roosevelt on Friday behind five touchdowns by Nic Smith. Union's Smith matched teammate Weston Horrocks' five touchdowns in the season opening win over Ben Lomond. Both Union and Uintah entered the game with 2-0 records. With the win Union is now 3-0 and will host Park City on Sept. 12.
