Framingham took on the Mass. Maritime Buccaneers on the road Nov. 2.
The Rams scored early as Adam Wojenski connected with Jacob Maher for an eight-yard touchdown after a quick six-play drive.
The Rams’ final score of the game came via a Wojenski one-yard run that capped off a nine-play drive.
The Bucs answered back immediately as Ja’iel Johnson returned the ensuing kickoff 87 yards for Mass. Maritime’s first and only score of the game.
The PAT attempt was blocked by Adeboye Oyaronbi and one of last week’s Best Players of the Week, Dwayne Hunter-Parker, returned it for the defensive two points, making the score 16-6.
Neither team was able to score in the second half, as both defenses controlled the game.
The game was the 13th annual Kelley Cup, which is a battle between father and son. Framingham State with Head Football Coach Tom Kelley facing off against his son, Mike Kelley, who is Mass. Maritime’s assistant football coach.
Framingham has now won the Kelley Cup 12 years in a row.
Coach Kelley said, “It is always a different feeling when coaching against a blood relative, especially when he is your son. Fortunately for us, he was not happy with the result of the game.”
They play their most important game of the season next against the Bridgewater State Bears, who are sitting at 5-1. Framingham can clinch the conference championship with a win over the Bears.
The Rams are now 6-0 in the MASCAC and 6-2 overall.
