Yesterday the 8th Grade Football Team went on the road to Denison and

came back with two big road wins.  The A team came away with a

thrilling 21-14 victory while the B Team came away with a huge win on

a late score to take the victory.


In the A game, the Rams found themselves in a hole down 0-6 in the

first quarter before Jose Diaz scampered on a 68yd Touchdown run with

2:09 to go in the first.  Diaz's PAT kick was good to make the score

7-6 Rams after 1 quarter of play.


The Rams would go back and forth with the Monarchs offensively with

both defenses holding each other until 2:24 left in the half when

Scott Reed caught a pass from Korbin Pelzer for a 59yd Touchdown

reception.  A Diaz PAT kick attempt was good, putting the Rams up 14-6

at the Half.


The Rams would struggle to move the ball consistently in the 3rd

quarter, while having a couple big runs negated on penalties.  The

Monarchs would tie it up by the end of third quarter 14-14.


The Rams Defense would continue to stifle the Denison offense in the

fourth quarter. Late in the fourth, the Rams defense would come up big

causing the Monarchs to turn the ball over on downs at midfield.  The

Rams offense would methodically move the ball inside the 10yd line,

when on a 3 and goal, the Rams would punch it in on a 5 yd. touchdown

run by Scott Reed led by several key blocks to take the lead.  Diaz's

PAT kick was good making the score 21-14 w/2:22 to go in the game.

Denison put together a late drive but eventually fell short when

Scott Reed picked off the Monarch pass  with :24.2 left to seal the

victory.   The Rams A team moved to  2-1 on season and will host

Harlan next Thursday.


In the B game, both offenses struggled to get anything going, while

both defenses played scrappy football making it tough to move the ball

down the field.    The pinnacle moment of the game came on a Monarch

3rd and long situation when linebacker Jaxson  Gulusha picked off the

Denison pass and took it to the house  on a pick six 40yd. touchdown.

 The Rams PAT 2 point conversion by Pelzer was good, making the score

8-0 with 2:07 left in the game.  The Rams defense would hold the

Monarchs offense and seal the sweep from Denison with an 8-0 victory.

The Rams B team also moves their record to 2-1 on the year and hosts

Harlan next Thursday at the Rams Memorial Athletic Complex


The Glenwood 7th grade football team hosted the Denison Monarchs last night and came away with 2 victories. 

In the first quarter the Rams held the Denison rushing attack and forced a punt that was taken back 21 yards for a touchdown by Myles Longmeyer (20).  The 3 yard 2 point conversion was run in by Chase Razor (10), making the score 8-0 with 5:04 on the clock.  After forcing another punt the Ram scored on a long 44 yard run by Razor, unfortunately the 2 point conversion failed, making the score 14-0 with 1:27 to play in the first quarter.  The second quarter the Rams found the end zone when Ben Carlo (2) ran the ball in from 1 yard out, the 2 point conversion was successful when Razor ran it in from 3 yards out.  Making the score 22-0 with 3:52 remaining in the half.

The third quarter was more of the same as Razor took the first play 60 yards to pay dirt, the 2 point conversion failed, making the score 28-0 with 7:25 on the clock.  The final Ram score happened at the 4:30 mark in the 3rd quarter when Cameron Martin (30) ran it in from 2 yards out, Carlo scored the 2 point conversion making  the final score 36-0.

The B game was a 20 minute running clock, the found the young Rams dominating scoring on their 2nd possession when Brandt Mower (12) scored on a 2 yard run and Brody Black (22) scored the 2 point conversion.  The Rams scored on their next possession when Black ran 40 yard making the final 14-0
