North Tahoe Rams fall at Carson

Special to the Sun

In its first road game of the season, the North Tahoe Rams Junior Pee Wees Pop Warner team dropped a second loss to the Carson Senators, 34-6, on Saturday.

and#8220;Well, Carson had suffered two losses coming in, so I think off our win last weekend, they were a bit more hungry,and#8221; said Rams head coach Scott Wilderman, who defended his team’s defense in the loss.

and#8220;There’s nothing wrong with our defense. The offense couldn’t keep the ball moving and special teams killed us,and#8221; the coach said.

Carson returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and while one was called back for a block in the back, it still set up the Senators at the Rams’ 25-yard line. Three plays later the Senators found themselves surveying the end zone for their first score.

The Rams’ highlight was a 57-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Headen Suter to tight end Liam Nolan-Bowers, a play becoming of staple of the Rams’ attack. Again for the second week in a row, the pair connected for another game-ending completion of 35 yards, stopped well short of the goal line as time ran out.

and#8220;We have a great o-line that is capable of giving a good QB time to find a receiver,and#8221; Wilderman said. and#8220;It just goes to show how our kids always play right to the end. They leave it all on the field.

and#8220;Carson has a dedicated team of kids, coaches and parents that have worked and played well together for years. It’s great to meet people who put themselves out there so all these kids and parents can have fun.and#8221;
