Rams trounce Durand, 50-8

DURAND – Montrose’s varsity football team struck early and often last Friday night as the Rams cruised to a 50-8 win over host Durand.

Sophomore quarterback Bobby Skinner passed for four touchdowns and ran for an additional score as the Rams chalked up 180 yards through the air and an additional 230 yards on the ground. Devante Bedford accounted for most of the rushing yardage as he ran for 132 yards on just six carries.

“This is a nice win and we were able to get lots of playing time for everyone in the process,” said Montrose coach Dennis Reinhart, whose squad improves to 5-2 overall and to 4-2 in the league. “Just as important, we are starting to get healthy and are close to 100 percent in that area. We have been pretty beat up for most of the season and it looks like we are getting better at the right time of the season now.”

Skinner completed 8 of 12 passes for 162 yards and four TD’s as he connected with four different receivers for two completions each.

Devante Bedford, who scored on runs of 43 and 61 yards, caught two passes worth 89 yards and two scores. Adam Stiverson had two catches for 42 yards and a TD, Joe Wilber hauled in a pair of aerials for 29 yards and Jack Kalakay caught two passes for 38 yards. Stiverson also completed a pass to Delazea Bedford off a bad snap on a PAT attempt that earned the Rams two points.

Mattie Reich was six for six on her extra point attempts.

Defensively, Devante Bedford had six solo tackles and assisted on one stop while Kalakay had three solos and three assists. Trevor Briggs also had three solos and three assists while Delazea Bedford recorded five solo tackles. Johnny Mahl had an interception.

The Rams only yielded 188 yards to the Railroaders with most of that coming in the second half under the running clock.

Montrose will entertain Byron this Friday night. Kick-off is at 7 p.m.
