Union City edged Burr Oak 46-42 in Friday’s boys basketball regular season finale.
“Tough one tonight against a talented Union City team,” said Bobcats coach Danny Schragg. “We played well, just missed some easy opportunities. Only had six guys tonight but we had great effort on both ends all night. Good game to get us ready for districts next week.”
Burr Oak finishes the regular season at 11-4 and heads to Colon for next week’s district tournament. The Bobcats will play in Thursday’s 7 p.m. semifinal against either Litchfield or Pansophia Academy.
Union City (5-11) meets Quincy in Tuesday’s 7 p.m. first round district game hosted by Centreville.
