sions came to an abrupt halt in the red zone, with penal­ties the main cul­prit.

Aside from the stand­out per­for­mance on the ground from Sarangoulis, Ex­eter QB Bran­don Un­terkoe­fler added 99 yards on the ground.

After half­time, the Rams quickly put the game out of reach. On a third-and-13 from the Spring-Ford 7, De- Francesco took a draw un­touched 93 yards to the house tomake it a 38-7 lead. He wasn’t done, how­ever, adding an 87-yarder later in the quar­ter.

“I can’t take much credit — the holes I ran through were huge,” said DeFrancesco. “Happy to get the win, and the long runs, but the credit goes to the guys up front.”

In all the Rams com­piled 524 yards of total of­fense be­fore pulling the starters with four min­utes left in the 3rd quar­ter, lead­ing 45-7. Un­terkoe­fler added two late scores for Ex­eter to tighten the fi­nal mar­gin, but the Rams got on the bus back to Roy­ers­ford with a 2-2 record — and a confident leader in Brubaker.

“We had a sour taste in our mouths from last week (a 28-21 set­back against Wil­son), and I told the kids to be an­gry about that, and use it as fuel to im­prove,” Brubaker said.

“I feel like we did just that tonight.”
