Each Week Mineral Wells Area News Will Look at Previous Game Stats and Video Highlights

The Varsity Rams football team moved to 3-1 on the season after a disappointing loss to Sanger last week. Multiple turnovers in the first half made it really difficult for the Rams to overcome a halftime defecit of 42-7. On the positive side, coaches were able to play several back up players in the second half who don’t normally get much playing time. The Rams were able to manage a few more touchdowns in the final quarter to lose 63-21. This week they head to Graham to take on the Steers. Check out our Video Highlights and post game interview with Coach Hobbs

Fabian Martinez had 8 tackles and Kayden Montalvo contributed seven. Braden Ethridge continues to be a strong defensive player weekly and put up six tackles along with Kadin Villa who also had five.
