Ram JFL Shuts Up Maroa



On the first play of that possession, Martz beat the coverage and accelerating when the pass from Pullen him in stride. He was free and clear and scored the 78 yard touchdown for the third score in 2 and a half minutes, 36-6.

It would be another 3 and out for Maroa. Facing 3rd and 12 at their own 42, they tried a reverse. the runner was corraled and as tried to evade tacklers he lost more yardage and was swallowed up by a host of Rams, like swarning raptors devouring their prey.

After the punt the Rams had the ball at the 50. A pitch to Spears went 21 yards. On 3rd and 9 Pullen was sacked. Facing 4th and a ton the pass was incomplete.

Maroa got the ball on downs. An incomplete pass was followed by Gottfriedt stooping a run for no gain. After another incompete pass, Shelby called time-out with 2:07 left in the half.

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 theball 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 downsat their own 40. Shelby went 3 and out and punted into the 4th quarter.

Daric Austin had a sack bringin 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.
