Framingham State Football drops to 0-2

The Rams dropped their second game of the season in a rematch against Brockport State – the same team they lost 40-27 in the 2018 Division III playoffs.

The Sept.14 rematch ended in a 14-0 loss and dropped the Rams to 0-2 for the first time since the 2006 season.

Matched up with a top-ranked team, the Rams had their work cut out for them. 

After a first half in which neither team was able to score, Brockport capitalized on two key interceptions off senior Adam Wojenski in the third quarter to win the contest.

The Framingham defense played a very strong game by preventing the Golden Eagles from scoring on any of their offensive possessions. They held the Golden Eagles to 326 total yards with only 95 of those going through the air.

Cully Curran led the Rams with 11 combined tackles from the defensive back position. Brockport quarterback, Freddy June, managed to break off for 112 yards on 18 carries for an outstanding clip of 6.2 yards per carry.

There were few bright spots on the Rams’ offense in a game in which they failed to score. 

Wojenski and the offense failed to put points on the board, which is not going to win the team any games. He managed to throw for 170 yards on 23 out of 50 completions with three interceptions, two of which resulted in Golden Eagle touchdowns. 

During the first two games he has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 1:7, which is below his typical performance. Wojenski has been the most important piece of the Rams’ offense for all of his collegiate career, and has never thrown more than 11 interceptions in a season. Although very unlikely, he is on pace to throw 35 this season.

Austin Nunn, a Worcester State transfer, added on to his strong first showing with six receptions for 60 yards. Jacob Maher, another Worcester State transfer, who performed well in the 2017 and 2018 seasons in which he totaled 1,601 combined yards and 21 touchdowns, was once again held out of the endzone. 

He finished the game with a minimal five receptions for 28 yards. The two wide receivers/tight ends have been Wojenski’s top targets through the teams’ first two showings.

The Rams look to get back on track in their first home game of the season in a MASCAC matchup with the 0-2 Westfield State Owls on Homecoming Weekend.
