The Panthers lost 50-14 at home in a nonleague game against Union from the 4A Greater St. Helens League.

Union showed impressive speed on both side of the ball, but Bonney Lake was able to execute and move the ball.

“It was a rough game for the Bonney Lake Panthers,” coach Jason Silbaugh said. “While the score was not close, it did not show the improvement that the boys made from week three to week four.”

The coach said after Union scored in the first quarter, “(Bonney Lake) came right back and answered with a nine-play drive capped off by a 25 yard touchdown run by Ethan McElderry.”

Bonney Lake scored in the fourth on a run from Robert Combs.

Highlights:

• Isaiah Weed – 14-22 for 123 yards

• Ethan McElderry – 15-53 yards and one touchdown

• Robert Combs – 2-70 yards one touchdown, three receptions for 20 yards

South Puget Sound 3A league play begins next week 7 p.m. at home against Peninsula.
