WARREN, NJ - The score doesn't tell the story. Watchung Hills fell to Union, 34-17 but the Warriors looked good to a bursting home crowd at Friday's first home game of the season.
Watchung Hills scored first.
"Team played hard, a few big plays made the difference in the game," said WHRHS head coach Rich Seubert. "The team never gave up and fought hard till the end."
A Union score just before half time changed the momentum of the game.
Chuck Ifewekwune had six catches for 130 yards and a touchdown and Union quarterback Andrew Sanborn went 12-for-18 for 190 yards and two touchdowns for Union.
Of the 2017-18 Warriors Seubert says, "Our biggest strength is playing together and putting the team first."
Watchung Hills will next play Elizabeth on Friday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m.
