GamePix: Piedmont v Union Academy

By Tim Winters, Jamey Ward & Chris Summerville, 09/03/18, 12:45PM EDT


Piedmont crushed Union Academy, 47-9 for their first win of the season.

Three Panther running backs gained over 100 yards rushing in a game that Piedmont controlled from the outset.

Junior RB, Troy Hagin, led all rushers with three touchdowns and 170 yards on 15 carries. Junior RB Conner Purser scored twice and carried the ball 18 times for 125 yards. Senior RB Branson Shillenburg rushed only three times in the game, but he made each run count rushing for 106 yards.

Union Academy's Isaac King led all Cardinal rushers with 149 yards on the ground including an 88-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Piedmont (1-2) will play on the road on Friday night against the 1-2 Forest Hills.

Union Academy (1-2) is on a bye week and will next play on September 14 on the road vs Northside Christian Academy.
