UNION 62, NORTH CLARION 61

RIMERSBURG, Pa. – Karter Vogle’s 3-pointer with 17.8 seconds broke a tie game and helped Union defeat visiting North Clarion, 62-61.

With the contest tied at 58, Union saw Vogle miss a shot, Skyler Roxbury got the rebound and miss the follow-up with the rebound going off North Clarion’s Dylan Walters out of bounds.

Roxbury then found Vogle coming off a screen in the left corner for the go-ahead shot.

Following the basket, Hayden Smith came up with a steal, and Caden Rainey hit one of two free throws with 9.8 seconds left to make it a two-possession game.

Walters then hit a meaningless three at the horn to set the final score.

It was two free throws by Vogle with a minute left that tied the game at 58 after Collin Schmader had put North Clarion up 58-56 with a basket with 1:12 to play.

After Vogle’s game-tying charity shots, Rainey came up with the defensive play of the game when he stole the ball from Walters with the play ending up in a back-court violation on North Clarion when Aidan Hartle grabbed the ball across halfcourt while his body was mainly still in the frontcourt.

Vogle had a game-high and season-high 24 points for Union. It was his third-highest point total in his career behind a 30-point game against A-C Valley Jan. 6, 2020, and a 28-point contest against Venango Catholic Dec. 28, 2019.

Schmader led Clarion with 22 points with Walters adding 19 and Josh Daum eight.
