2nd Quarter Dooms Shelbyille


The Rams put together a 7-play, 27 yard drive with a Luke McConnell 1st down catch. But a late clipping call hurt them, followed by two sacks. Fox had to punt again. He put the ball down inside the St. T 1.

St. T got a 1st down, then threw a 40 yard pass on 3rd and 7. It was caught, then ran another 17 yards for a 57 yard TD play. Big play #2. St. T was up by 17 points with 3:05 in the 2nd, 24-7.

A Ram fumble on the kick-off gave St. T the ball at the Shelby 26. St. T got a 1st down, then a holding penalty set them back. On 4th and 4, the quarterback ran the ball in from the 7. After the kick St. T was up 31-7 with 54 seconds left in the half.

St. T had 300 yards of offense in the 1st half to Shelby's -7 yards rushing and 44 yards passing. Shelby had their one touchdown as a result of their defense forcing a fumble.

Shelby took the 2nd half kick-off and went 24 yards, before an interception killed the drive.

The Ram defense came up big again. After a 3 and out, the Rams blocked the punt. Devin Peterson returned the ball to the St. T 18.

Three plays later Patch ran the ball in from 9 yards out. Patch's kick was good making it a 17-point game, 31-14. Both the Ram touchdowns to that point were set up by their defense.

The Rams were in position to make a game of it. However, St. T dug in and put together another 14-play drive covering 69 yards, capped off with a 7 yard run. Matt White blocked the extra-point and it was 37-14 St. T with 33.8 left in the 3rd.

Shelby returned the kick-off and went 7 plays. They picked up a 1st down, but then threw three incomplete passes. Fox punted, but it was short.
