Washington ends Rams' football season

(Continued)

MT. VERNON —

Washington responded with an efficient two-minute offense that ended with a Danley score with 38 seconds left in the half.

Just that momentum again,” Shaner said. “We never could just quite get it completely in our favor.”

The Panthers extended their lead at the outset of the third quarter. Washington recovered the opening kickoff and punched in another score to lead 34-6.

MT. Vernon's only other score came midway through the third. Demontez Miller-Gray dashed in from 10 yards away. He finished the game with 102 yards rushing. Graham Henken added 60 yards on the ground.

The Rams finished with three turnovers on a pair of fumbles and an interception from Reeves.

Danley biggest runs came on a pair of second-half touchdowns of 62 and 69 yards.

Some places we have an advantage,” Crouch said. “Casey Danley, he's a pretty special kid, our tailback.”

The Rams finished its season 7-4. Washington improved to 11-0 and faces Normal in the third round of the 5A bracket.

It doesn't feel very good right now, but we'll look back and have way more positive memories than negative,” Shaner said. “That's for sure.”
