Football gets back on track against Bridgewater State

Corey McFeeley / THE GATEPOST

The Rams opened conference play on Saturday with a convincing 34-13 win over the Bridgewater State Bears at home.

After going scoreless in the first, the Bears got on the board but missed the extra point, giving them a 6-0 lead.

The Rams answered on their next possession with a three-yard scramble for a touchdown by junior quarterback Adam Wojenski, but a blocked extra point left the game tied at 6.

Bridgewater State looked to be on the comeback with their next possession until the five-play, 44-yard drive ended with an interception in the end zone by Rams’ defensive back Nasir Thomas.

The Rams scored again with an explosive 67-yard touchdown pass from Wojenski to receiver Shaquille Joseph, and went into the half with a 13-6 lead.

A slow start to the third gave way to another Wojenski touchdown pass, this time from 17 yards out to sophomore receiver Mikael Brown.

The Bears’ second touchdown came after Wojenski’s only interception on the day, knocking the Framingham lead down to 7.

Any ideas of a comeback were put to rest after the Rams scored on the ensuing possession with a 1-yard touchdown run by fullback Rufus Rushins.

Another Rushins’ touchdown in the fourth was the icing on the cake, as the Rams improved to 2-1 on the season.
