Ram football had its second loss in two weeks when the Texas A&M Commerce Lions (No. 9) defeated the Rams 62-14 Oct.22 at the LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Field.

The Rams fell 3-2 overall and 2-4 LSC. They started off 14-7 going in to the first quarter. Texas A&M went up 20-14 before half time. TAMUC took advantage of the many mistakes ASU made in the third and fourth quarters.

Carsen Cook, freshman quarterback, threw a pass to Mark Munson, senior wide receiver, who ran 80 yards for a touchdown. Cook went 167 yards with 11 out of 18 passes, one touchdown and one interception. 

Munson had one touchdown and 109 yards from five passes. Grant Aschenbeck, sophomore linebacker, accumulated 13 tackles for the night. Richard Franklin, senior defensive back, ended with 11 tackles. Trey Green, senior running back, gave the Rams their first lead with a nine-yard run into the end zone.

Josh Stevens, junior running back, had 89 yards with 20 carries. Green had 56 yards with 13 carries for the night.

Donovan Thompson, junior wide receiver, fumbled the ball and the Lions’ Kieston Carter took it in for a 12-yard touchdown, making the score 27-14. ASU went downhill and could not recover.

Casey Eyman, junior kicker, had a 54-yard punt returned by Lions’ Shawn Hooks for a touchdown that made the score 34-14

ASU fumbled again at the end of the fourth quarter. TAMUC ran the football 49 yards for the final score.

The Rams are on the road and will play Western New Mexico University in Silver City, New Mexico Oct. 29.

The Rams will have their last home game Nov. 12.
