Prep Roundup: Rams fall to Huskies in Friday night battle
On the road for a Week Two matchup against the Battle Mountain Huskies, the Roaring Fork Rams came up just short, Friday, in a 13-7 loss to the Huskies.
The Rams and Huskies were tied at the half thanks to a 65-yard touchdown run from Aldo Pinela and a big interception by Alex Dominguez, but the Rams couldn’t build off of it in the second half.
A failed two-point conversion for the Huskies kept the score at 13-7, pushing the Rams to 0-2 on the young season. Roaring Fork will take on Grand Valley (1-1) next week on the road.
