The Rams continued their dominance over conference rival Massachusetts Maritime Academy with a 28-13 victory at Clean Harbors Stadium on Saturday.
It was the 11th straight win over the Buccaneers with the last Framingham loss coming in 2007.
Rams’ quarterback Adam Wojenski was intercepted on the opening play of the game, but the Bucs gave the ball right back after a quick 3-and-out.
Wojenski bounced back on the ensuing possession with a 44-yard strike to wide receiver Napoleon Miller, which set up a 22-yard touchdown pass to running back Quron Wright immediately after.
The Bucs nearly tied the game when they recovered a fumbled punt in the end zone for a touchdown, but the Rams blocked the point after try to keep their lead at 7-6.
The game cooled down with seven straight punts from the end of the first through most of the second, but there would be more excitement before the end of the half.
Wojenski completed an impressive 57-yard pass to wide receiver Shaquille Joseph and then put the Rams back on the board with a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mike Calicchio that sent the team into halftime with a 14-6 lead.
On their first possession of the second half, the Rams orchestrated a 7-play, 85-yard drive which ended in a 6-yard touchdown reception by Miller.
Mass Maritime answered with a touchdown of their own on their next possession, bringing the score to 21-13, but Wojenski iced the game with a 13-yard touchdown run in the final minutes.
The victory lifts Framingham State to 3-1 on the season.
