Rams unable to stop Greene brothers
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Twins Bryce and Bryan Greene scored all six of the touchdowns for Bald Eagle Area High School to defeat Ligonier in the final game of the regular season last week. This is the Rams' fourth straight loss this season after winning the first six straight.
“They were just better than us tonight,” Ligonier head coach Roger Beitel said. “I told our kids that sometimes the ball just doesn't bounce your way. Tonight they made the big plays and we didn't.”
Bryan Greene opened scoring in the game with a 13-yard touchdown running from the Wildcat, where he carried the ball on five straight plays gaining 50 yards on the ground.
Ligonier struck back with a 73-yard scoring drive in which quarterback Scott Fennell found Garrett Tobias in the endzone, where he caught a tipped pass to score on the eight-yard reception. The point after attempt was no good, making the score 7-6. This was as close as the Rams would get in the contest.
Bald Eagle would then score 38 unanswered points, beginning with a 32-yard field goal with 8:45 left in the half. This was followed by three touchdowns before halftime. Bald Eagle quarterback connected with Bryce Greene for a 50-yard touchdown pass and then a 25-yard scoring play.
The Rams punted on their final possession of the half, which Bryce Greene grabbed after one bounce, and returned the ball 71 yards to score his third touchdown of the night and make the score 31-6 at the half.
In the third quarter, Bryan Greene scored his second touchdown of the night when he recovered a fumble by Collin Smith and ran 39 yards to the endzone with 8:26 left in the quarter. The final score of the contest came when Jones connected with Bryce Greene once again for a touchdown with 3:02 left in the third quarter.
Scott Fennell completed 14 of 26 passes for 148 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Ligonier also rushed for 55 yards on 22 carries.
