Framingham took on the Fitchburg State Falcons in a MASCAC game Oct. 12.
The Rams defense shined bright as they kept the Falcons to zero points at halftime. The offense, on the other hand, seemed to be starting off slow as they had only scored 14 points by halftime.
In the second half, led by Adam Wojenski and Devaun Ford, the offense caught on fire.
Just 27 seconds into the second half, Wojenski and William Jean connected on a 62-yard pass to increase the Rams’ lead to 21 points.
On the next possession, the Falcons coughed up the football, which was then recovered by Issac Nascimento and returned 17 yards to the Falcons’ 28-yard line.
After an eight-play drive, the Rams capitalized on the opportunity with a Ford rushing touchdown to extend the lead to 28 points.
Later in the third quarter, Ford went on to score once more with a 39-yard rush up the spine of the Falcons defense.
At this point in the game, both teams knew it was over, and the Rams preceded to score three more rushing touchdowns while running out the clock for much of the fourth quarter.
Wojenski finished the game with 231 yards passing, and three total touchdowns.
The Rams’ stars of the game, however, were Ford and Nascimento.
Ford eclipsed 100 rushing yards for the first time in his young collegiate career while also scoring two touchdowns.
Nascimento finished the game with three tackles, an interception, and a fumble recovery.
The Rams are now 3-0 in the MASCAC and 3-2 overall.
