Ram JFL Slams SOV



The 3rd period was scoreless and most of the 4th. SOV finally got on the board with a break-away 62 yard TD run with 1:37 left in the game. Shelbyville still got the last word, however. Firnhaber took the ensuing kick off and ran it back 78 yards for a TD. Gottfriedt made the extra-points kick and Shelby capped the scoring at 42-6.

The Ram offense has been a juggernaut in the last two weeks, but the defense is equally dominant. The Rams had 292 yards of offense and the defense had 11 tackles for loss, holding SOV to just 65 yards of offense. This contrast was startling, even though the Ram starters were pulled after the 2nd quarter and the Ram offense stopped throwing after the first 12:00 of play.

The biggest offensive stat was the Ram passing game. That was mostly due to runs after the catch. Quinn Martz ran 33 yards for a score after an exceptional catch and a great down field block. Kelby Firnhaber's 20-yard fade pattern was caught due to great focus against a defender and then out-running the pursuit for his 85-yard TD. 

Tylr Gottfriedt also ran free after two catches, accumulating 65 yards. All that was in the first 12:00. Gottfriedt, besides kicking off, kicking 3-of-7 extra points, and catching two balls, ran 37 yards for a TD, to lead the 72 yard Ram rushing game.  

The defense was led by four players with double-digit tackles. Ryan Skowronski and Clayton Peterson both had 12 tackles, while Gottfriedt and Pullen had 10 each. Derek Fisher and Nick Hoene had eight and seven tackles, respectively. The Rams had 16 defenders with tackles and Cade Helton snagged a fumble.

Tomorrow the Rams will play host to Tolono Unity, last year's conference title game rematch.
