Union Falls to Dike

On December 9, the sixth rated Dike-New Hartford Wolverines beat Union 42-29.  The first quarter saw each team get off to a slow start.  Union trailed 11-9 at the end of the first.  Union tied up the game early in the second, but trailed 21-14 heading into halftime.  Dike extended the lead to 10 for most of the third quarter which Union could not overcome heading into the fourth.  The Wolverines continued to use their athletic ability and size in the fourth and closed out a 42-29 win.

"We knew Dike would have a veteran team with good size and athletic ability.  We wanted to get them in a half court game, not let them run the court, get back on defense and not let their press affect us.  Overall, I thought we did a good job of handling the press which they removed very early in the game.   We did a nice job of controlling the pace of the game and getting back on defense, but we failed to do these things in a couple small stretches which was the difference in the game."
