Onujiogu and the Rams defense dominate in 34-0 shutout

Framingham took on the Plymouth State Panthers in a MASCAC game Oct. 19.

The Rams’ defense continued their streak of dominance by picking apart a Plymouth State offense that was previously averaging 34 points a game.

The Panthers’ only highlight of the game came from an 11-yard rush by Nick Lancia.

The Rams’ defense had five sacks and held the Plymouth State offense to 53 yards in the game, including nine passing yards. The Panthers managed only to get five first downs in the contest and rushed for just 44 yards.

The Rams’ defensive star of the game was Joshua “Uno” Onujiogu, who had himself one of the best performances we have seen by any player on the Rams so far this season. Onujiogu had six tackles – four of which were tackles for loss – and a whopping three sacks.

Adam Wojenski led the offense as he threw 35 completions on 38 attempts for 285 yards and four touchdowns. His longest pass of the game was only 25 yards, which seems unusual. However, he also threw nine passes over 10 yards. 

By hitting the Panthers with quick out routes and mid-posts, Wojenski was able to shred the defense.

Jacob Maher and Devaun Ford led the team in receiving with nine catches a piece. Maher had 99 receiving yards, while Ford had 56. Ford also rushed for 69 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown.

This game is a huge win for the Rams as they get ready for the biggest game of the season against undefeated conference rival, Western Connecticut State. The game could prove to be pivotal in deciding who will win the conference as both teams remain undefeated in the MASCAC and are now set for a collision course against one another.

The Rams are now 4-0 in the MASCAC and 4-2 overall.
