Greer wins battle of Jackets


GREER — Union fell to Greer 16-9 on Saturday at Dooley Field.

Union led 9-0 after a 27-yard Brooke Jackson field goal and a 1-yard Devon Thompson run.

Thompson’s run came with 30.8 second left in the first half. Union tried an onside kick and Greer recovered.

Greer quarterback Taylor Johnson launched a bomb and Justin Anderson brought it down for a 52-yard touchdown reception. Daniel Fiske added the kick.

Union led 9-7 at halftime, but the momentum had swung to Greer, which was held to minus 1-yard rushing in the first half. In fact, Union held Greer to 28 yards rushing and star running back Antoine Cross to two yards on 10 carries for the game.

But Union suffered a blow on the first drive of the second half. Quarterback Cameron Willis, who has had shoulder and elbow problems all year, was injured when his shoulder was jammed into the ground. Coach Tommy Bobo took Willis out as a precaution.

Willis had 72 yards on six completions at that point. He should be available next week.

Bo Whitney replaced Willis. On his second play, he fumbled the snap. That led to a 19-yard Fiske field goal and Greer’s first lead.

Greer linebacker Ivan Dodd returned an interception for a touchdown in the final seconds for the final margin of victory. Union (4-6, 4-3) travels to Greenville to open the playoffs on Friday. Greer (9-1, 7-0) hosts Dreher on Friday.
