The ASU Rams football team on Sept. 14 battled against the Simon Fraser University Clan at the LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Field.

Traveling from British Colombia, Canada, approximately 2,000 miles from home, SFU came to play traditional American football.

In the first quarter, the ASU took over the scoreboard with a 21-0 lead.

“I wasn’t surprised at all about the lead,” linebacker Micah Flowers said. “We worked well all week during practice so we could dominate from the start of the game to the last snap.”

ASU continued to score handily into the second quarter.

Senior Payne Sullins made a 14-yard pass to junior Keke Chism to add more points to ASU’s lead. Shortly after, sophomore Jared Defelice made a 30-yard field goal to add three more points. The Rams would score three more touchdowns in the quarter, including a 49-yard run from senior Lloyd Howard III, a 16-yard reception from senior Charlie Rotherham to freshman Austin Landry and an 83-yard fumble recovery from sophomore Dagen Dunham.

Heading into the second half, the Rams had increased their lead to 51-0.

SFU would put their first points on the board at the end of the third quarter, which brought the score to 54-7 heading into the fourth.

Flowers said after SFU scored, he told himself to not let it happen again.

“We wanted to keep them to just one touchdown,” he said.

In the final quarter, ASU defeated SFU by 61 points, ending the game 68-7.

Overall, ASU had a total of 285 rushing yards, 311 passing yards, 5 sacks and 84 plays.

“I felt great at the end of the game,” Flowers said. “I wasn’t really tired, I just wanted to go inside and celebrate with my teammates after a good win.”
