Rams’ Football to face Wesley in the Opening Round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament

The Rams closed the regular season with a 47-6 win over the Worcester State Lancers in a MASCAC game at Coughlin Field Nov. 16.

Framingham opened the game with a rushing touchdown by Jacob Maher in the first few minutes to take a 7-0 lead.

From there, the Rams quickly stopped a lackluster Worcester State drive and forced the Lancers to punt.

The Rams scored right away after a successful six-play drive was capped off by a 25-yard passing touchdown to Maher to increase the lead to 14-0.

After another punt by the Lancers, the Rams took advantage by scoring another passing touchdown to Maher, marking his third of the game. 

The Rams added yet another touchdown in the first quarter via a 38-yard pass to Elijah Nichols.

The Rams never looked back as backup quarterback Nick Gordon stepped in for Adam Wojenski to give the starter rest for the upcoming NCAA tournament game.

The game finished with a score of 47-6 as the Rams’ regular season concluded.

Wojenski finished with 217 yards passing and completed 16 of his 19 passes for four touchdowns.

Devaun Ford led the way with 191 yards rushing and one touchdown.

Maher caught seven balls for 107 yards and had three total touchdowns.

Framingham finished the 2019 regular season with an 8-2 overall record and an unbeaten 8-0 MASCAC record.

The Rams led the MASCAC in points, points per game, touchdowns, rushing yards, rushing yards per game, fewest yards allowed per game, interceptions, and fewest rushing yards allowed per game.

Now, all the attention is on the NCAA tournament. 

The Rams will be making their second straight and fifth overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Framingham and Wesley College of Dover, Delaware previously had matched up in the tournament back in 2015 with Wesley winning 42-22.

The Rams will seek to record the first win for a MASCAC team in NCAA tournament history. 

The game will take place on the Wesley home turf Saturday, Nov. 23.
