Ram JFL Shuts Up Maroa


On 4th down, Maroa passed the ball and Cade Watson intercepted it at the Shelby 30. He eluded tacklers and recorded a 70-yard pick six. Gottfriedt’s extra-point kick was good with 1:51 left in the half, 44-6.

Maroa drove to the Shelby 38, but had 4th and 14. A halfback pass failed and the Rams had the ball again. A long pass was incomplete and the half ended.

Maroa got the 2nd half kick-off and drove to the Shelby 46, but a huge sack by two Rams made it 3rd and 19. Shelby took over on downs at their own 40. Shelby went 3 and out and punted into the 4th quarter.

Daric Austin had a sack bringing 4th and 9 and the Rams stopped Maroa on the next play. The Ram B offense took the field and was stopped. Gregory scored on his screen pass TD, then Gottfriedt set up the final Ram score with inspired “never let up” running.

“We had a great fan base and they did a great job as well,” Coach Cloe said. “I know the kids were excited to play in front of that many people. It is great when a community pulls together to support such a great bunch of kids. We had several of our ex-JFL players on hand with players from the 2004 final four team in addition to players and coaches from the 1987-89 teams as well. My mentor Gerald Temples gave the pregame speech and that was inspiring for our team. Coach is a great man with a passion for teaching kids. We were honored that he agreed to come give our pregame.”
