Rockford boys Soccer tallies a win, a loss and a draw for the week

Senior defender Jamie Staley takes a kick for the RAMS in the 1-0 match against Grand Haven.

The Rams were on the road Tuesday, and added another shutout to the season in a match against the Grand Haven Buccaneers. The lone goal for the Rams was scored by Junior Eli Appleby who hit a 30-yard shot early in the first half. Tuesday’s 1-0 win was the RAMS’ first on Grand Haven turf in five years. The RAMS hosted the East Kentwood Falcons on Thursday in a packed stadium. Rams’s senior Dewey Lewis posted a big score early in the game and Rockford’s defense stood strong until a Falcons’ header deflection from a free kick pushed the match to 1-1. The tie held until the final two and a half minutes of the game when the Falcons managed to mount a strong offensive push and buried a shot into the net. The Rams were unable to answer offensively during the second half. The final game of the week came Saturday as the Rams hosted Forest Hills Eastern. Forest Hills scored first, but the Rams answered with a shot by Appleby from a sideline throw-in by Lewis. The match ended in a 1-1 tie, bringing the Rams record to 12-2-4 for the season. The Rams are currently ranked #2 in both the OK Red Conference and the State. Out of 18 games, 12 have been shut outs and five of the remaining games posted just one goal against our tough Rams defense. Scoring events have been posted by 10 different players so far this season.
