By Patrick Peterson
The Rams suffered a brutal first loss of the season at the hands of Cortland State by a score of 57-19 on Saturday afternoon.
An early interception by sophomore linebacker Anthony Behonick gave the Rams the ball at midfield. This led to a six-yard touchdown pass by junior quarterback Adam Wojenski to senior wide receiver Napoleon Miller to open the scoring.
Cortland answered quickly with a touchdown pass of their own just under 2 minutes into the second quarter.
Another six-yard touchdown pass from Wojenski to sophomore wide receiver Mikael Brown putting the Rams up 13-7, but with just under a minute left in the first half, Cortland scored again to head to the break with a 14-13 lead.
The Rams scored 1rst again in the second half on a one-yard touchdown run by junior fullback Rufus Rushins, but that proved to be the last time the team would reach the end zone that afternoon.
From there, the Red Dragons took over, scoring six unanswered touchdowns and forcing four
Framingham turnovers, including a 59-yard interception return and a 95-yard kickoff return, both for touchdowns.
The standout player was wide receiver Napoleon Miller, who hauled in 11 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown on the afternoon.
The loss drops the Rams to 1-1 on the season.
