The Red Lodge Rams didn’t even give Baker time to soufflé anything in this Homecoming encounter.

The Rams were simply too good and maintain their 100 percent record with 4 wins from 4.

Camped as they seemed to be in the Baker half of the field the Rams solid beachhead fed a line of touchdown after touchdown to make the game safe by half time at 34-0. A further score added to Baker’s misery before they found a consolation goal and trod off the field of play reeling from a 41-6 defeat. 

Again the Rams were economical numbering only 36 plays to Baker’s 45 and again only having 19 minutes of possession to Baker’s 29. 

Rushing yardage was impressive with the Rams making 344 off 30 attempts. Baker made 34 attempts but got only 92 yards in.  In passing yards, Red Lodge had 20 to Baker’s 52. 

The Rams also made 15 first downs to Baker’s 7 and gave up only two penalties to Baker’s 4. 

Games leaders were Austin Heimer with 1-3, 16 yards in passing, Finnegan Davis with 8 carries, 97 yards and 2 touchdowns in rushing and in receiving Braden Tomlin with one receive, 16 yards. 

In other rushing stats Rizon Berndt had 9 carries for 90 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Tomlin made 2 for 80 yards, one touchdown. 

In defense Heimer made 5 solo tackles as did Davis. Riley Fitzgerald made 4 solo tackles. 

In kicking Jay Graham made 5 of his 6 kicks. 

The Homecoming King and Queen were Braden Tomlin and Lillian Fouts.
