Ram defense dams Sangamon Valley

Shelbyville JFL heavyweights rolled again, this time squashing Sangamon Valley, 35-0.

“It was a pretty dominant defensive performance”, said Ram coach Matt Cloe. “Clayton Peterson and Ryan Skowronski continue to put up double digit tackles for us every time he steps on the field. They are both relentless at pursuing the ball and that bodes well for us. Tylr and Turner did a great job filling tonight from the linebacker spot, and that showed in their stats.

Gavin Peterson, Tylr Gottfriedt, and Ryan Skowronski all recorded double-digit tackles. Peterson registered 15 tackles, five of them for loss. Gottfriedt had 13 tackles, three for loss. Skowronski tallied 12 tackles with two for loss.

“Shutouts and negative rushing yardage is what we focus on defensively. I believe this is the 3rd week we have held our opponents to negative yards rushing, and that is quite an accomplishment for our team. Although we have a potent offense, I still believe defense wins championships, and these kids have really bought into that concept.”

Turner Pullen threw for two more touchdowns, a 32 yard and a 36 yard plays. He also ran for two touchdowns, a 16yard TD and a 36 yard TD. That was all in the first quarter. In the 2nd quarter, Tylr Gottfriedt had a pick six of 27 yards, then ran in the 2-point conversion. Gottfriedt also kick two extra points in the game.

“Offensively, We did a nice job of executing and were very efficient. We scored on our first 4 drives of the game and that is always a plus. Brett Spears had two nice catches for some big chunks in terms of yardage. Our second team offense is getting better week to week, and seemed to move the ball better tonight.”

“Although we did not meet our goal, it was an improvement. These kids are starting to see the concepts of what we are trying to achieve in order to be efficient when the ball is in our hands. They should be fun to watch in a few more weeks.”
