Ram JFL Shuts Up Maroa

Maroa had been talking trash the last few weeks leading up to the JFL heavyweight match-up between the Trojans and the Shelbyville Rams. On Saturday night, the Rams did their talking on the field, winning 52-19.

“This was a great win for us, our fans, and our town,” said Ram coach Matt Cloe. “We have been fortunate enough to have beaten Maroa for the past 3 years and this one was probably the most satisfying for us. We had a lot invested in this game, as we do most games, but this one seemed to have a bit more to it.”

Undefeated and conference leading Shelbyville scored 18 unanswered points in the 1st quarter, while the Rams defense forced two 3 and outs and gave up only one 1st down on three Maroa possessions. Shelbyville upped their lead to 44-6 before the half and Maroa wasn’t talking trash anymore. All you could hear from the other side were crickets. Shelby shut up the Trojans, except for the whining.

A Maroa coach complained about being the recipients of the mercy rule, the running clock after a 30-point lead. He continued to whine and was thrown out of the game and had to leave the field.

“Overall, we performed well as a team,” Coach Cloe said. “Our running game was pretty sharp tonight and we put up a lot of yards on the ground. They had a lot of trouble adjusting to our option schemes and that shows in our rushing numbers.”

Shelbyville had 398 yards and four touchdowns rushing the ball. The Rams had 161 yards passing and three more touchdowns. They put up a total of 559 yards of offense and seven touchdowns.

Shelbyville had planned to leave the starters in through the 3rd quarter. With the running clock, the 4th quarter came quick. The Rams got one possession in the 3rd and had to punt. After the Ram defense stopped Maroa on the first possession of the 4th, the 2nd string Ram offense took the field.
