The Rams out of the Pac-10 defeated Ridley 2826 on Friday and will play the Suburban One Continental Conference champs at Poppy Yoder on Saturday.
“Mike is a great defensive back, but he carries the ball a lot on offense,” Cuthbert said. “We had an injury and Mike was prepared. We are excited to have another home game.”
Class’ game saving tackle will be talked about in town for a while, but his performance on offense allowed the Rams to take 28-7 early in the second half. The junior running back picked up 154 yards rushing and found the end zone twice. Class’ second score was a 69-yard dash to pay-dirt behind tackle Shane Kraynik, who sealed off the edge and allowed the sprinter speed of the area’s top tailback to do the rest.
“They were big, but we were able to get to our blocks, and we have Mike,” Kraynik said. “As the game goes on, we made some adjustments. Our hard work is paying off. It is a dream come true.”
The Rams scoring was started by senior John Kim’s 16-yard run and capped off by senior Alex Krivda’s 25-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Bigam. The road to the District One Championship Game goes through Perkasie. Believe or not, it is just how the Rams expected it to be back August.
“Some asked me a couple weeks ago if we expected to be 9-1 and I said, ‘no’,” Krivda said. “We expected to 10-0.”
