In a battle of two teams coming off of a win, the Rams took on the Eastern New Mexico University Greyhounds on Oct. 24 in Blackwater Draw, New Mexico.

The Greyhounds had won their previous three games and the Rams were coming off of an exciting homecoming victory. Both teams wanted to add to their streaks and fans were prepared for an intense match.

The game began with the Greyhounds storming the Rams’ end zone on a nine-play 81-yard drive, capping off with a 10-yard run for the first touchdown of the game. Nearly two minutes later, wide receiver Anthony Pierson caught a 35 yard pass from fellow wide receiver Brett Rasberry to put the Rams on the board and tie the game. With less than a minute in the first, the Greyhounds rushed into the end zone again for another touchdown, ending the first quarter at 14-7, the Rams falling behind.

Second quarter began with the Greyhounds nailing two touchdowns within 40 seconds of each other. The Rams were able to regain some control six minutes later to score, but the Greyhounds would not slow down and scored again, finishing the half with a lead of 31-15.

After the Greyhounds’ takeover of the first half, Ram fans were thirsting for a comeback. The Greyhounds outran the Rams’ defense to gain 72 yards for another touchdown. Rams were struggling but managed to score, remaining behind at 38-22.

Unfortunately, the Rams were unable to catch up. The fourth quarter began with the Greyhounds scoring off of a 71-yard run, and the Rams were able to score once more with a one-yard rush from quarterback Kyle Washington. The game ended with a score of 46-28; a loss for the Rams.

Statistic leaders for this game were Washington with 27 completed passes out of 46 attempted, 352 passing yards and one touchdown, running back Ryan Byrd with 52 rushing yards; Pierson with 99 receiving yards; defensive back Ryan Clapsaddle leading the defense with 13 tackles. The Rams will finish their season at home against Tarleton State on Oct. 31 at 7 p.m. This game will honor the team’s seniors and military personnel.
