The Red Devils boys’ team fell to the Union Cougars on Tuesday, Nov 21, 68-54, in Roosevelt. Masen Ward led the team with 11 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. The trio of Kevin Park, Cameron Hoppensteadt and Brayden Schultz scored 9 points each. Josh Jones and Tyson Horton also scored 3-pointers.

Last year, Union lost to Grand County in Moab by two points. Grand County is now playing in 3A-Region 15, while Union plays in 3A-Region 14.

One unique fact about the matchup is that Union head coach Gordon Garrett is a graduate of Grand County High School.

“I love Grand. I love their coaches, I love their players, I love the school, and I love the community. I don’t think any game is ‘just another game.’ Every game matters, and though there are a lot of things that can be learned from a loss, it feels good to win,” Garrett said.

The Red Devils will debut at home on Nov. 28 when they host Green River in a non-region matchup.
