UNIONTOWN — Mistakes by Uniontown High’s Eagles just fueled the fire for Burlington High’s Wildcats Friday night.
Burlington used a  ground game that rolled up 265 yards on 34 carries to beat host Uniontown 34-6. The Wildcats added 77 yards through the air.
“We mand many mistakes at key times. One of the biggest mistakes was my fault : a substitution error cost us a scoring opportunity early in the game,” said Chad Stroud, Eagle head coach.
“We had an illegal formation on a punt that the Burlington returner fumbled.”
Burlington led 21-0 at halftime. The Wildcats scored a touchdown in each of the second-half quarters
The Eagles got a touchdown run by Jordan Woods in the fourth quarter. Woods had 43 yards on 13 carries.
Uniontown finished with 156 yards rushing and just 11 yards passing.
“Burlington was bigger and strong and they began wearing us down as the game went on,” Stroud said.
Defensively, Tyler Hall and Matt Maloney led the Eagles with eight tackles apiece. Ty Clayton made an interception. Robert Kuns and Max Labbe each had a fumble recovery.
Uniontown (0-1) travels to Oswego next week in Three Rivers League play.
