September 10, 2009 // 0 Comments

The Rockford Ram defense rose to the occasion and forced Holt to punt after three plays, resulting in negative three yards. The punt went down to the Rockford two-yard line. Joey Johnson ran the ball the first two plays, resulting in three- and one-yard runs. On third down, the Rams turned to Ryan Darby, who picked up six yards and a first down. After a penalty it was first and 15 to go. Johnson ran four yards, then Zach Schmuck hit for seven more. Then Masiewicz hit Wierengo for a first-down pass. The Rams got another false-start penalty, and Neil VanderLaan picked up nine yards before another false-start penalty. Darby picked up a Ram first down the next play. Masiewicz called his own number and ran for three yards. On a pass play, Masiewicz hit Matt Karamol, who dashed to the 12-yard line.

The Rams were then shut down, and Mudgett came in and hit a 20-yard field goal. The kick off from Mudgett was out of the end zone, resulting in a touchback, and Holt starting on the 20-yard line. Holt seemed to have a shimmer of momentum after a huge pass play on a third down, but fumbled the next play on the 10-yard line. Jason Kester scooped up the fumble and returned to the 28-yard line.
