What might be one of the worst months in the history of the Regina Rams football program is over as is their season.
On Friday night, the Rams finished off the Canada West campaign by getting throttled 57-14 by the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The Rams played the game with Colton Hippe at quarterback—it was the 4th quarterback the Rams have used this season and the third straight game in which the team used a different starter due to a foot injury sustained by Noah Picton that prevented him from suiting up in what would have been his final game as a Ram as he and 14 others have now graduated having played five years.
Hippe struggled completing just 9 of 21 passes for 51 yards.
The loss spells an end to a season that had some promise until it was found the team had an ineligible player on the squad meaning they had to forfeit three wins. That means what would have been a 4-4 record ends with the Rams finishing the season officially at 1-7
“It has been a tough three to four weeks here. Bryce said. “It has been emotional, and you’re dipping down into your fourth-string and fifth-string quarterbacks. Not only that, with some guys missing in the secondary too, it has been tough. Everyone deals with the same things when you get toward the end of the season. It has been a tough road.
