BIRDSBORO — A super defensive effort helped Daniel Boone hang tough with Spring-Ford into the second half of Friday night’s non-leaguer at Brazinsky Field.
But it was defensive performance that bordered on the supernatural that enabled the Rams to turn a grind-it-out battle into a 39-0 victory.
The Spring-Ford ‘D’ haunted the Blazers throughout the second half as the Rams improved to 2-0.
There was senior defensive end Zameer McDowell, making like Jason Vorhees at Camp Crystal Lake with a game-changing, crunching hit on Boone quarterback J.D. Okuniewski.
There was junior defensive end Mason Romano, tormenting the Blazers like Freddy Krueger did to the kids on Elm Street.
And there was the duo of Andy Lovre-Smith and Kyle Hoffner, who were as active as Michael Myers on Halloween — each contributing a defensive score.
“We knew we had to put the game on our backs,” the 6-foot, 210-pound Romano said. “It was everyone’s effort; not one single guy. Everybody got fired up, that’s what happened. Everyone was playing hard.”
