GRAETTINGER - With some tough losses already this season, Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire's homecoming victory had to feel twice as sweet.

The Titans trailed 6-0 early, but scored all the points in the fourth quarter of a 30-18 win over the Warriors.

North Union scored on its first drive on a pass play from Noah Morphew to Brendan Anderson on third-and-12 from the 40-yard line.

Quarterback Max Hough carried the ball just six times, but they came at key moments as he finished with 47 yards.
