Feb 08, 2014
Union forged a third-place tie with Western Beaver with a 76-52 Section 1-A triumph over Rochester last night.

Union (5-5, 9-12) needed to beat Rochester and have Western Beaver (5-5, 13-6) lose to Lincoln Park to force the tie. The Leopards did their part downing Western Beaver 92-57.

“First off, we wanted a shot to get in,” said Union coach Dave Smialowski, whose team started the season at 0-6. “Obviously, we’re happy to be in and wherever they put us is where they put us. We’d like to win some games now that we’re in.”

The Scotties jumped on the Rams (0-10, 3-17) early, taking a 42-23 lead into the second half.

“Our defense played well in the first half,” Smialowski said. “We wanted to cut down on their guard penetration. They took a lot of outside shots. We were able to get the rebound and get the ball out in transition. We were able to get some easy ones.”

Jullian Johnson led all scorers with 18 points and added six rebounds, while Anthony Rush collected 15 points. Benjamin Young contributed 11 points, seven boards and five assists.

“Ben saw the floor well,” Smialowski said. “Jullian played well. Ben found him under the hoop and he was able to finish.
