Another exciting day of Mount Douglas Rams Football. The JV Rams stuffed a last second Vancouver College convert attempt in recording a 25 to 25 tie versus the Fighting Irish in the early contest. In the second game, Gideone Kremler threw a perfect 40 yard pass to Josh Lucas who made a remarkable catch for the touchdown on the final play of the game earning the Varsity Rams a heart stopping 33 to 28 victory over Van College…a game for the ages!
Thank you to all the hard working and dedicated volunteers who make our Rams Game Day Experience (field set-up, field clean-up, concession, programs, filming, 50/50, etc.) the best!
Varsity Game Summary
The Rams defense came up with a huge stop late in the game after VC had gained momentum, and then moments later came the memorable “Pass and Catch” for the victory. On the day, Gideone Kremler had another impressive game throwing for 259 yards and TD strikes of 40 and 30 yards, both to Josh Lucas. Gideone also rushed for 79 yards and 2 majors. Ben Pierik was the leading rusher for the Rams with 85 hard yards and 1 TD. Ben also had 3 receptions for 52 yards, while Josh Lucas led the way with 11 receptions for an amazing 173 yards. Hayden Naylor chipped in with 31 receiving yards.
On the defensive side of the ball, Quinn Jenish and Soren Hallschmid had massive games recording 9 and 8 tackles respectively, followed by the big presence of Tyrese Hogue with 6, Josh Lucas with 5 and Hayden Naylor with 4 tackles. Phil Grohovac had a fumble recovery while Hayden recovered an onside kick to start the game and also had an interception.
On Special Teams, Phil Grohovac was a perfect 3 for 3 in convert kicks, and handled the kickoffs and the bulk of the punting duties exceedingly well.
The Varsity Rams now have a bye, but will be preparing for cross-town rival Belmont in 12 days…not that we are counting! Meanwhile, the JV Rams make the trek to the Interior to face Mount Boucherie. We wish the JV Rams great luck and great health!
