Rams trounce Bulldogs to earn first-round bye

Mount Douglas racked up a convincing 43-7 win over cross-town rival Belmont

The Mount Douglas Rams jumped ahead early and never looked back in a convincing 43-7 win over the Belmont Bulldogs last Friday.

Declann Michielin paced the Rams first-half attack, scoring a pair of touchdowns on the ground and another after hauling in a pass from Gideone Kremler.

Michielin finished with 91 yards on 10 carries, while Manny Lopez picked up 71 yards on four carries and converted lineman Aidan Kachanoski rumbled for 29 yards and a touchdown on three carries. Kremler compiled 114 yards in the air and three touchdown strikes, with Josh Lucas and Oliver MacKenzie collecting the other scores.

Michael Olson led the Rams defence with four tackles, three sacks and a safety. A total of 18 different Rams registered tackles, with Aidan Kachanoski collecting a pair of sacks and Trystin Waters getting to the quarterback as well. The Wolf of the Week went to Isaiah Hunt, who recovered a fumble on a kickoff.

The win earned the Rams a first-round playoff bye.

The Junior Varsity Rams used a suffocating defence to shut out Belmont 27-0.

Gideone Kremler led the passing attack, going six for 14 for 104 yards, including a 50-yard catch and run by Zairech Kremler to open the scoring. Gideone Kremler also scored on a 66-yard run and finished with eight rushes for 118 yards. Logan Sekyer chipped in with six rushes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

Isaiah Cardilicchia put the game away in the fourth quarter with an 80-yard return of an interception.

Sam Mosky was all over the field, finishing with nine tackles (two for a loss), a forced fumble and two passes defended. Sebastian Hansen, Zairech Kremler and Connor Clarke each contributed six tackles.

The win moves the Junior Rams to 6-2 on the year (2-2 in league play) and gives them a bye in the first round of the playoffs, with their next game Nov. 18.
