The claws came out last week as the Union High School Tigers faced down the Paw Paw Pirates in UEC's homecoming game.
While the Tigers ultimately lost the game by a single point, 47-46 in overtime the small team proved their strength as their players kept up a coordinated offensive and defensive push until the very last buzzer.
The 2018-19 season has been a tough one for the Tigers, who have picked up only two wins this season and eight losses. One of the two wins the team was in their second game of the season in their first match-up against Paw Paw. In that game, the Tigers won 62-44. The other UEC win so far this season was against Lighthouse Academy, 72-66.
Other match-ups this season have been against Harman (52- 24), Turkeyfoot Valley High School (82-55), Tygarts Valley High School (62-33), Moorefield (72-24 and 74-18), Petersburg (77-31) and South Harrison High School (63-23).
While the team is boasting only a 2-8 record so far this season, the team is still scheduled to play 12 more games this season, giving the team plenty of opportunity to improve those numbers.
