(Neb.)- Rams Roll Leyton, Get Back To .500 On The Season
(Crawford)- The Crawford defense forced four turnovers and Blaine Flack threw for four tocuhdowns as the Rams rolled over Leyton on homecoming night 55-0.
The win snaps a two game losing skid for Crawford and moves them to 3-3 on the season.
Flack made an impression early in the game intercepting Leyton's first pass of the game , but Crawford gave it right back on a fumble deep in Warrior territory. With the Warriors backed up deep, the Crawford defense jumped on Leyton quarterback Josh Cruise in the end zone for a safety and the first points of the night.
Following the free kick after the safety, Crawford drove inside the ten and finished off the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Flack to Trevor Nelson.
Flack intercepted another Leyton pass on the next drive that set the Rams up for their second touchdown of the night, a 4-yard run from Matt Wendland to put Crawford up 14-0.
The Crawford defense got in to the mix again with 6:13 left in the first quarter taking a fumble recovery and punching it in to the end zone on a 15-yard pass from Flack to Andy Wendland. After forcing a punt, Crawford scored again on a Flack to Wendland connection for a 27-0 lead after one quarter.
A Warrior punt just four seconds in to the second quarter led to a Flack 25-yard touchdown run with 11:49 left before half. Getting the ball back with 10:15 in the second quarter, Flack threw another touchdown pass to Wendland for the third time in the game to lead 40-0.
Dennis Vogl would score the final touchdown of the first half on a 13-yard run to give Crawford the 47-0 halftime lead.
Vogl added one more touchdown run, this time from 28-yards away to cap the scoring with 32-seconds left in the third quarter.
A running clock would hurry the second half, and Crawford would run to close out the remainder of the game.
The Rams are on the road next week at Anselmo-Merna, needing a win which would most likely lock down a playoff spot.
