Framingham, MA - The Framingham State University football team scored 33 unanswered points, all in the second half, as the Rams defeated Bridgewater State University 33-10 in Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) action this afternoon at Bowditch Field.

With the win, the Rams clinch the 2014 MASCAC Football Championship as they improve to 8-1 on the year and remain perfect at 7-0 in the MASCAC.  The Rams have won five straight MASCAC Titles.  The loss drops the Bears to 4-5 on the year and 3-4 in the conference.

Bridgewater State’s defense was the story in the first half keeping the Rams offense scoreless despite being inside the Bears one yard line twice.  The Bears defense came up with the stop on a 4th and goal from the one yard line with 1:43 left in the first.  Then the Bears kept the Rams out of the end zone on a third and inches in the early stages of the second quarter forcing a field goal attempt that hit the upright.

The Bears offense took the game’s opening possession and drove 64 yards on 10 plays and capped the drive with a 20 yard field goal from Colin Neri (Upton, MA) to take a 3-0 lead with 10:12 showing in the first.

The game would remain 3-0 until the closing minutes of the half when the Bears took possession with less than a minute remaining and scored the game’s first touchdown on a 37 yard strike from Danny Higgins (Manahawkin, NJ) to Travis Bassett (Littleton, MA) with seven ticks on the clock.

The Rams offense came alive in the second half scoring 33 unanswered ...[read more]
