Framingham took on the Westfield State Owls in their first conference game of the season Sept. 21.
The Rams started off strong with a dominant first half as they outscored the Owls 34-7.
In the second half, the Rams were able to score 14 more points while running the football for almost the entirety of the final two quarters.
After a lackluster performance his first two games, Adam Wojenksi showed up for the Rams by throwing for 230 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He also rushed for 57 yards and a touchdown.
Wojenski was the recipient of the 2019 Calder Award, which is presented annually to the most valuable player of the Homecoming Day game in memory of former Ram John Calder.
Rams’ tight end Jacob Maher said, “Adam Wojenski is an absolute stud. Either he’s scrambling for a first down, or he’s throwing the ball 70 yards for a touchdown. I will say it again: he is a stud, and I could not be playing for a better teammate or quarterback.”
Maher himself had a great game catching four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed the ball on the goal line six times for two more touchdowns.
Coach Thomas Kelley said, “It’s great to have Jacob here. He is a phenomenal player and athlete. We haven’t even scratched the surface yet with this guy.”
Following the win, the Rams improved to 1-2 on the season.
This Rams’ victory marked Kelley’s 100th career win as the Rams’ Football head coach.
“It’s not something I thought about too much. The coaches and players talked about it more than I did,” Kelly said.
“This season is more about getting us back on track toward winning another championship. If that 100th win is in there, so be it. It’s more about these guys and them performing well.
“We started the season slow, but we played some very good teams. We got a big game coming up next. We have a bye week before playing against UMass Dartmouth. They are a huge test for our team and what we can do.”
UMass Dartmouth is currently 3-0 and presents a huge opportunity for the Rams to prove to the rest of the conference they are still a championship contender in the MASCAC.
