In the second game of the midseason tournament, the Uniontown Eagles faced the Osawatomie Trojans and the Humboldt Cubs. There were no JV games.

Karleigh Schoenberger had 15 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals. Sammie Hampton led the team with 7 rebounds, and also had 5 steals and an assist. Coach Miller said, “Tough loss, poor communication on defense and too many turnovers was the reason for our demise. However, I was pleased with the number of deflections (32) and steals (21) we accumulated. Unfortunately, the bad outweighed the good and we fell short. We are looking forward to battling for 3rd place in the Pleasanton Mid-Season Tournament on Saturday at 4 pm. Go Eagles!”

I love to win, but most of all, I love to play.”
