By: By Melony Henderson - Sports Writer

The Trask Titans paid the Union Spartans a visit on a cold Thursday night, but the cold was on the outside because the Titans offense was sizzling hot on the court as they whipped Union 69-24.

The Titans were raining three-pointers all night long as they jumped out to an early 14-2 lead. Tiyuan Bullard got Trask started scoring with nine points in the first quarter of play and Jajuan Carr added six to put the Titans up 20-8 at the end of the first quarter.

Javion Bland and Derrick Smith would try to keep the Spartans in the game, scoring four points each.

In the second quarter, the Titans shooting was still on fire as Carr would sink nine points giving them a 43-13 halftime lead.

The third quarter was the same. Jakell Newton would get seven points in the quarter and the Titans would outscore the Spartans 17-5.

After the game, Union Coach Keagan Warren said his team made too many turnovers and a team can’t win making that many mistakes.

“Trask shot lights out in the first half and we couldn’t find the range,” Warren said. “We are still young and learning.”

The Spartans are 0-8 overall and 0-2 in conference play. They will travel to Wallace on Jan. 3.
