Richland loses heartbreaker to Bishop Carroll in first game of 2010

Written by: on Saturday, September 4th, 2010

The Richland Rams (0-1) and the Bishop Carroll Huskies (1-0) faced off at DeGol Field in Loretto, PA in their first Friday night contest. The Huskies beat the Rams 27-20 in a close contest that saw the Huskies lead most of the game.

Leading the way for the Huskies was senior RB/DB Ryan Woo who had two of the Huskies four touchdowns. Woo gave the game its first score on an interception tipped by Richland’s Patrick Ludwig.

Richland would fire back though. On a drive that saw the Ram’s pass their way down the field and get held to go for it on fourth down, junior QB Zach Solarcyzk threw a touchdown strike to freshman WR Kyle Flick on a fourth and 10 conversion. Flick would continue to make huge plays for the Rams and catch four passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns.

“Flick had a great game,” said Rams head coach Brandon Bailey. “He’s a freshman, he’s a tough kid, he’s a smart kid, and he makes plays. Bishop Carroll gave him a lot of single coverage tonight and we took advantage of that.”

Woo would capitalize on arm tackling from Richland and score a 72-yard run to take the score 13-7.
After another score by the Huskies on a run by junior QB Josh Barzdo, the Rams would catch a break before the half. The Huskies would have a ball snapped over their punter’s head to give the Rams excellent field position close to their end zone. The Rams drive would end with Barzdo hitting junior Tight End Zach Henley for another touchdown making the score 20-14.

The Huskies made one last strike before the half  with another Josh Barzdo run, making the score 27-14.

The second half was slow. The Huskies did a great job with ball control up until the fourth quarter. With a little over nine minutes left in the contest the Rams scored a wild touchdown as Flick  caught a pass from Solarcyzk. Flick  had the ball stripped by Woo, only to have the ball get knocked into the end zone. Flick  came up with the ball. That made the score 27-20 due to a blocked extra point by the Huskies.

The Rams would have one more shot at the end zone late in the fourth quarter, but fell short when Solarcyzk  threw an interception to senior DB Curt Panick with only seconds left in the game. This would seal the deal and give the Huskies their first win of the season.

“It was a tough loss,” said Bailey. “We’re proud of our kid’s effort. We made too many rookie mistakes and that should be expected out of rookies. We’ll fix up those mistakes and get ready for Forest Hills.”

Next week the Rams will be taking on the Forest Hills Rangers (1-0). The Rangers beat the Bedford Bisons (0-1) 41-6. This contest will see father taking on son as The Rangers are coached by Don Bailey the father of Rams head coach Brandon Bailey. Also, Bishop Carroll will be at Westmont taking on the Hilltoppers (0-1), who dropped their first game to the Central Cambria Red Devils (1-0) 23-7.
