Dike-New Hartford 35, Union 22

The Union Knights knew they would have their hands full Friday night against Dike-New Hartford, the top-ranked team in Class 1A. In the end, it was the Wolverines that made enough big plays to hold off a determined Union squad for a 35-22 win.
Dike-New Hartford got on the scoreboard first on a 45 yard drive executed over 11 plays to grab a 7-0 lead with just over three minutes remaining in the first quarter.
Early in the second quarter, Union needed just one 20 yard dash by Kaleb Roach following a Wolverine fumble to score its first touchdown of the night. A direct snap to Roach on the far left side of the formation successfully converted the two point try, putting the Knights on top, 8-7.
Dike-New Hartford regained the lead when a deflected pass wound up in the hands of a very surpised Parker Kiewiet for a six yard touchdown reception.
A partially blocked punt with 42 seconds left in the half gave the Wolverines just enough time to capitalize, which they did when quarterback Drew Sonnenberg found a streaking Dane Fuller in the end zone from 29 yards out. Dike-New Hartford led, 21-8, at the half.
The Wolverines extended the lead to 28-8 early in the fourth quarter on Sonnenberg’s third touchdown pass of the game.
As they have all season, the Knights refused to quit. Starting at their 20 yard line, the Union offense marched down the field, with Brayden Grosse doing the honors on a one yard touchdown run and two point conversion.
On Dike-New Hartford’s next possession, Britton Rolison made the defensive play of the game, scooping a Wolverine fumble off the turf and racing 59 yards for a touchdown to pull the Knights within six, 28-22.
After Union’s onside kick failed to go the required ten yards, a 40 yard touchdown run by Cade Bennett accounted for the final score of the game.
The loss drops the Knights’ record to 2-2 for the season. On Friday night, Union’s opens district play at home against unbeaten Benton Community.
