TULSA, Oklahoma – The Union Redskins were able to hold off the Bixby Spartans and earn a 53-51 win Tuesday.

The Redskins were coming off a six-point loss to rival Jenks that dropped them out of the top 10 in Class 6A. Bixby has now dropped two straight games after winning five of its previous six.

Union will move on to face Stillwater Thursday in the first round of the Jenks/Union Invitational. Bixby will also begin a tournament on Thursday and will face Bartlesville in the first round of the Port City Classic.
