DINOS 72 RAMS 8

B2 Digital Imaging
REGINA, Sask. - Running back Michael Webber rushed for over 130 yards in his first career start, but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Rams were buried 72-8 by No. 1 Calgary on Saturday afternoon at Mosaic Stadium.

The Rams were within a touchdown after one quarter, but Calgary scored majors on four consecutive possessions in the second to pull away for good. The visiting Dinos led 41-0 at the half and 55-8 after three quarters on the way to their 64-point victory.

Calgary (4-0) had a fine outing from quarterback Andrew Buckley, who completed 21 of his 29 pass attempts for 478 yards and four touchdowns. Rashaun Simonise hauled in two of Buckley’s four touchdown passes, opening the scoring with a 37-yard major in the first and also scoring on a 42-yard catch-and-run in the second. Simonise finished with four catches for a game-high 106 yards.

William Maxwell needed only two plays to lead all players in all-purpose yardage. He had a 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown late in the third, and closed the scoring with a 73-yard catch on a ball delivered by backup quarterback Jimmy Underdahl. Maxwell finished with 222 all-purpose yards.

Matt Carson and Doctor Cassama both notched a sack and a pass breakup for the Dinos, with Cassama also recording a team-high nine tackles (8 solo, 2 assisted). Boston Rowe also had a sack, while Robert Woodson and Michael Schmidt added pass knockdowns and Cory Robinson had a forced fumble and a fumble recovery on the same play in the fourth quarter.

Making his first career start for the Rams with Atlee Simon injured, Webber finished with 18 rushes for 135 yards and scored the team’s lone major of the game with a 21-yard rumble in the third.

Mason Rossler had an unassisted sack and combined with Michael Stefanovic on another, while Eric Wicijowski added another sack for the Rams defence. Joey Dwyer, Korey Greene, and Polis Koko all had pass breakups.

The Rams (0-4) will now prepare for a road game against Manitoba, which will enter Week 5 with a 2-2 record. The teams will kick off at Investors Group Field next Friday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. CDT.

Rams would have won if Frank was the coach! The previous said in jest but the idea will be the theme of the comments from all of the former JUNIOR Rams!

Keep poking the bear.... Some persons choose to ignore the rich and successful history of the previous Ram teams and don't know when to leave well enuf alone......... If the Rams had not moved to the CIC ranks, doubtful the University of Regina would haven a football program today. While I try to understand some of the animosity and ill feelings toward those associated with the Rams in the past, I don't like it...... A lot of people (Ram alumni and Family) made significant commitments to ensure the financial viability of this University Team.... Without those commitments, there is no Team. Please show some respect to the origins of this Ram Team, and its success over the last 50+ years....
Without a past, there is no future........

Boy those Rams sure are a disaster. Sure glad they are from Regina because Saskatoon teams never ever, get "BLOWN OUT " like that.

Wow do the Dino's look amazing and the Rams resemble the lowly riders

Well that would be wrong and as a former Ram from university days, I left the park embarrassed. I guess the current executive of this football team has its head stuck in the sand to realize they completely botched this whole thing right from the start. It isn't going to get any better any time soon either.

Back to back games against the Dino's for the Huskies. Someone could be eating crow over the next 2 weeks.

Should not the Dinos be playing in the NCAA? No competition in western Canada to be sure.

Looks like RP has a lifetime of free blizzards agreement already in place.

Why were the Rams letting a minor football team practice with them during a week they have a game. Do it during a bye week not a week they have a game. What message are you telling your players? Your a team struggling is it better not to work on things or as the score indicated yesterday you already packed in the season?

Rams aren't even a legitimate university team.
And they are awful to watch.
