Union Hosts Ridgway in RRR Roadhouse Game of the Week; Live Pre-Game Set for 5:45

RIMERSBURG, Pa. (D9Sports.com) – It’s a rare third meeting in two seasons between non-conference foes as the Ridgway Elkers (3-4) travel to Rimersburg to take on the Union Knights (3-4) for this week’s RRR Roadhouse KSAC Game of the Week.

Fans can listen to the game to the game live on exploreClarion.com, with the Kerle Tire Pregame Show starting at 5:45 p.m., live from Union High School.

Last year, the Knights beat the Elkers during the regular season at Ridgway, 32-7, and then matched up in the first week of the Class A playoffs and the Knights won again on the road, 18-14.

This time around, both teams need wins badly to help their playoff chances.

Union’s Dugan Gallagher (915 yards, 7 TDs) is poised to go over 1,000 rushing yards for the season. Cole Morris has rushed for 299 while catching 13 passes for 171 yards. Quarterback Lucas Bowser has thrown for 279 yards and three TDs.

Ridgway has lost four straight games, but the Elkers have played most of those games tight, including last week’s 21-10 loss at Brockway. The Elkers lost 21-14 to unbeaten Elk County Catholic in Week 6, 28-13 at unbeaten Kane in Week 5 and 13-7 at Coudersport in Week 4.

Elkers quarterback Johnny Mitchell threw a TD pass to Dane Cappiello and Aaron Hinton kicked a 21-yard field goal to give the Elkers a 3-0 halftime lead. The Elkers have struggled offensively, averaging only 180 yards going into last week’s game. James Winslow (231 yards), Neil MacDonald (212 yards) and Cappiello (199 yards) were the leading rushers prior to the loss to the Rovers.
