SPIRIT of JEFI,nZRSON and FARMER'S ADVOCATE SPORTS PAGE B9 Wednesday, November 14, 2018 FOOTBALL i1" :1 Cavaliers defense shines, hands Rams 21 16 loss to claim first win of series ANDREW SPELLMAN since 2013 By ANDREW SPELLMAN SHEPHERDSTOWN - With both teams struggling offensively, defense was the name of the game in the final matchup of Shep- herd's season. The game was back-and- forth from the first drive with both teams rotating snaps with a slew of four- and-outs. Tyson Bagent fi- nally broke the stingy Cav- aliers defense in the sec- ond quarter with a swing pass to Ryan Feiss for a 12-yard touchdown, but the final 13 minutes of the half would reflect the first quarter as both offenses failed to make plays. Highly dependent on the run game, the Cavaliers only logged 43 yards on the ground and 28 pass- ing yards in the first half. The Rams weren't produc- ing much on the ground ei- ther, only clearing 62 rush- ing yards, but Bagent made up for it with 110 yards in the air. The second half was a different story. The Cavaliers emerged from the locker room and began attacking fast and often. Tanner Bernard led the charge, dumping off short passes to Chris Thax- ton and Alonzo Brown to begin the resurgence. Brown would find the endzone first for the Cava- liers, pulling in a 35-yard catch. After a Rams' field goal, Wise began charging upfield once again, taking up residence near the goal line. In the final minutes of the third quarter, Victor Mitchell punched into the endzone to claim the lead. Wise's defense contin- ued to put up a brick wall, intercepting two passes in five minutes. After a failed drive, the Cavaliers punted it deep into Ram territory and delivered the dagger with a big fumble recovery in the endzone, pushing the lead to 21-10. In the wan- ing minutes of the fourth, Tyson Bagent rushed into the endzone from two yards out and called for a 2-point conversion. The at- tempt would fail and Wise would chew up the remain- ing two minutes to beat -n'the Rams for the first time "' since 2013. With the loss, the Rams end their season with a 7-3 record, the lowest since 2009 when they ended the season 6-4. Completing 253 of 387 pass attempts, the stand- out freshman Bagent ends his debut year with 3,029 yards and 29 touchdowns, 'securing a passer rating of 149.13. In a scheme that highlights Bagent's talents, -" his two main weapons 'iwere sure to get a lot of i /love. Feiss ended the year with 90 catches, 952 yards : and nine touchdowns. ,i: Wanya Allen saw less tar' gets, but still hauled in 51 passes for 717 yards and seven touchdowns. This is the first time since 2014 that the Rams haven't won the Mountain East Conference title, now secured by Notre Dame (11-0). Claiming the .top seed in Super Region 1, the Falcons enter the NCAA Football Playoffs for the first time in the school's history and will play the winner of the No. 4 Kutztown and No. 5 Hillsdale game on Nov. 24.
