Rams 24 – Rohnert Park Warriors 28
This week was a hard loss for the JR Midget team. Rohnert Park put up a great battle but Dixon JR Midgets were not able to pull out the win. Rohnert Park received the ball first and drove down the field and scored first. The RAMS were able to answer with a score to tie the game. This back and forth of scoring continued the entire game.
The RAM offense fought against a tough Rohnert Park defense. The O line - KC Holtemann, Michael Barnhill, George Fountain, Anthony Soucy, Johnnie Bryce, Terry Bruce and Dylan Blanton – played hard and made some big holes for the running backs: Jesse Camarillo, Jake Giardino, Kyle McMullen and Spencer Webb. Quarterback Mitch Moniz threw the ball and ran the ball well all game.
The RAM defense played strong, but the Rohnert Park defense slowly gained yardage as they drove down the field. The RAM defense – Brevin Hensley, Jeremy Cristobal, Mace Moreno, Caleb Epperson, Tim Vidmar, Kaden Hensley, Jesse Camarillo, Joey Baker, Johnnie Bryce, Michael Barnhill, Terry Bruce, Anthony Soucy, Tim Richardson, – fought hard but just couldn’t stop their drive.
In the final seconds of the 4th quarter, the RAMS were on the 1 yard line and down by 4 points. Moniz tried the QB sneak but the just could not make it across the goal line. On 4th and goal, Jake Giardino received the ball and weaved in and out of defenders but came up just inches short. A great battle out on the field and the RAMS fought tough, but unfortunately didn’t get the win. We have a lot of work to do this week to get ready for Ukiah and look forward to another great weekend of great RAM football at home this Saturday. Go RAMS!!
Rams 37+ - Rohnert Park Warriors 9
This week our Midgets team was able to achieve a victory by focusing on the Special Teams battle and overcoming adversities throughout the game. We knew going into the game that our opponent had several potential game breaking players, including perhaps the best punter/kicker in our league.
We kicked off and started on defense this week, then gave up a long drive and an early 6-point deficit. On offense we moved the ball but eventually had to punt on our first series. The first quarter ended with our Midgets behind 0-6.
Most of the first half involved a field position battle with several punts by both teams. During the second quarter, the Warriors mounted a long drive but were held to a 31-yard field goal (attainable by only a few kickers at our age group). This stop helped our team gain confidence, which soon resulted in a second quarter touchdown for the Rams. Just prior to the second quarter ending, we had another long touchdown called back which left the Rams still behind 6-9 at the half.
We received the ball at the beginning of the 3rd quarter and started successfully moving the ball down the field on offense. Several hard runs up the middle and the ability to break tackles in the open field helped our offense get back on track.
Several key special teams plays and defensive plays helped us take a 31-9 lead into the fourth quarter. These included both a punt return for a touchdown and a pass interception for a touchdown.
Overall, the Midgets' defensive team played a stellar second half holding the Warriors out of the end zone in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Our outside linebackers and cornerbacks played a solid game, coming up to make several tackles on outside running plays. An offensive touchdown in the 4th quarter put the game into scrimmage. We look forward to playing the Ukiah Lions at home this Saturday. Go RAMS!!
