Tigers Smash Rams; Win 41-10

November 15, 2012

It was a big day for Towson football.  The one day of the year in college football when a win is absolutely necessary.

Senior Tom Ryan hauls in a touchdown pass

It was senior day.  The final curtain call for Towson seniors as they played their final home game of their career.

Prior to the game each senior was introduced to Johnny Unitas Stadium and joined members of their family on the field.

It offers the players some time to celebrate with their families the long journey they were about to complete, before strapping on their helmets and going to football war.

Towson came into this game heavily favored.  They were facing the lowly Rhode Island Rams who were still searching for their first victory of the season.

Rhode Island got out to an early lead off of a touchdown pass from Bob Bentsen to Brandon Johnson-Farrell.

That would be the only time that the Rams had the lead or found the end-zone.

Towson quickly responded with a touchdown scored by tight end Cory Kirby.

At the beginning of the second quarter, senior wide receiver, Gerrard Sheppard, hauled in a touchdown pass from senior quarterback, Grant Enders.

The Tigers had built up momentum and would not be stopped the rest of the way.

Towson would find the end-zone a total of six times.  Senior receiver, Tom Ryan scored on a 19-yard passing play, junior tight end put up points on a 18-yard scoring play and running back Clayton Minott plowed his way to pay dirt on a one-yard touchdown run.

Senior Running back, Dominique Booker finished with 181 rushing yards and one touchdown.

Perhaps the best moment of the night came at the start of the thrid quarter.

Dominique Booker, a senior running back and team leader, broke loose for an 83-yard touchdown run.  The senior had been running hard all game and fans were clamoring for him to reach the end-zone.

The Towson defense played just as efficiently as the offense.

Brian Boateng, a graduate student at linebacker, led the team with 11 tackles.  Senior defensive lineman, Matt Morgan, recorded a sack.

Towson captain and senior safety Jordan Dangerfield, finished with eight tackles and played outstandingly in the secondary.  He officially ended with one pass defended, but had others taken away due to questionable calls by the officials.

Towson’s defense did not allow Rhode Island to score a single point in the entire second half.

The defensive unit will have to keep up their stellar play this week as the Tigers travel up to New Hampshire for their season finale.

Towson who is still in the hunt for both the playoffs and a conference title need to beat a tough University New Hampshire team that has yet to lose at home this season.

The game is scheduled for a 12:00 kick off and will be televised on Comcast sportsnet.
