Late score propels Union High past Dinos 27-21

In a matter of mere moments, the Carbon High Football team experienced both the highs and lows of the game of football.

Down 21-13 in the fourth quarter, the Dino offense engineered a game-tying drive that ended with quarterback Dakota Cisneros finding wide receiver Jordan Blanc over the middle of the field before pushing past Union High Cougar defenders for the touchdown, cutting the deficit to 21-19. Seconds later, Cisneros found Blanc again for the two-point conversion to tie the game at 21-21 with 4:19 left in the game.

Union (3-1, Region 10) got the ball back and did what they worked at all game long: rushing the ball and controlling the clock. Facing a 4th-and-two from the CHS 45-yard line, Union's Steve Welsh took a handoff, slipping past Dino defenders on his way to the end zone for a touchdown and a 27-21 lead.

The final hope for the Dinos (1-3, Region 12) ended on a sour note as Union's Wyatt Keslar intercepted a Cisneros pass on the first play of the drive, sealing the victory for Cougars.

It was a reversal of last year's game between the two teams which saw the Dinos score a late touchdown in the fourth quarter to walk away with a 17-13 win.

Carbon High head coach Jeff Blanc said the players took the loss hard but credited his team with never giving up despite being down late in the game.

"The guys battled all game long," Blanc said after the game. "A couple of plays made the difference in the end. The team now knows what it's like to play in a tight game decided in the final moments. Hopefully they will learn from this experience."
