Despite the fact the Soroco Rams' running backs combined for more than 100 yards on the ground, the south Routt County football team couldn't find the end zone against the West Grand junior varsity team and lost 34-0.
"That one I really thought we could get," Rams coach Steve Longwell said.
The Rams traveled to West Grand Monday night with the hopes of capturing their first win of the season. They moved the ball fairly well through the entire game, with running back Brandon Himmerite rushing for 56 yards and fellow tailback Brandon Gilleland accumulating 58 yards.
Also, freshman quarterback Jack Means completed six passes in 11 attempts for 67 yards.
"We were just shooting ourselves in the foot," Longwell said.
Every drive that looked as if it could end with a score was impeded by a penalty, fumble or interception, he said.
Furthermore, West Grand had a quick running back and quarterback that Soroco could not chase down.
"We just got to go with the flow," Longwell said of his young team.
That makes the Rams 0-6. Their next challenge is Eagle Valley junior varsity at 4:30 p.m. on Monday at home.
