SYLACAUGA- On Thursday, the Valley Football Rams jumped out early, and never looked back in a dismantling win over Sylacauga 46-14 on the road against the home Aggies.
The Rams brought a stout defense something head coach Adam Hunter eluded to after the game.
On the offensive side of the ball, Ram Quarterback Cam Dooley had a big game going 7/13 for 220 yards and 2 touchdowns through the air, and rushing for 79 yards on the ground and 2 running touchdowns.
Dooley, and Ram Wide Receiver Chase Childs had a deep ball connection and exploited the Aggies all night. Childs finished the night with 2 grabs for 69 yards, 3 rushes for 88 yards, and a kick-off return for a score. In total, Childs found the end zone three times. With the combination of Valley's big-play offense and a very strong Rams defense, Sylacauga was playing from behind all night.
"I thought our defense responded very well from the previous week. We came off the football well and we tackled well. Offensively, Chase Childs and Cam Dooley had great nights making big plays. The Offensive line protected Cam well and we made plays. Both sides of the ball were much more aggressive this week", said Valley Head Football Coach Adam Hunter.
After the Rams took a 27-0 lead into halftime, Sylacauga found the end zone twice, but would not get any closer.
The Rams, who are now 2-2 on the season, will be off next week, and then will be back home to host Russell County from Ram Stadium on September 3oth.
