The University of Regina Rams are back in the win column.
After having three victories stripped away from them this season due to an ineligible player, the Rams took out what has been a frustrating week for them by knocking off the Alberta Golden Bears 32-17 on a rainy Friday night at Mosaic Stadium.
It was Seb Britton running the show for the Rams as he got the start at quarterback in place of the injured Noah Picton who could not go because of a toe infection. Britton’s first play of the game was not a good one as Daniel Scraper fumbled the ball away after a short reception, but it was one of the few mistakes the Calgary native made as the second year signal-caller threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns.
Head Coach Steve Bryce says after a difficult week for the team it was nice to get on the field.
“They responded very well and I am very proud of them after all we’ve been through.” Bryce stated. “I told them before the game that most people go through life and don’t get a chance to face adversity and respond to it to see what they are all about. I knew these guys were resilient and perserverant and that they support one another. It was reinforced tonight.”
The Rams, who have to win their final two games and get some help to make the playoffs, are now 1-5 on the season. They will be in Calgary October 19 to face a Dinos team that has already clinched first place in the conference.
