Game Recap

The Ringgold football team hosted West Mifflin on Friday in what was essentially a must-win game for the Rams.

Ringgold received the ball and looked good on their opening drive, moving the ball down the field. After converting a fourth-and-1 from midfield to keep the drive alive, Caleb Eisel was intercepted on the next play.

After that, it was all West Mifflin for the rest of the night. The Titans used several big plays, scoring on runs of 70 and 80 yards

The Titans had touchdown runs of 80 and 70 yards in the first half and held a 13-0 lead at the break.

West Mifflin would score on their opening drive of the second half to increase their lead to 19-0, before Ringgold’s Brenden Small would put the Rams on the scoreboard.

Big plays would once again doom the Rams in the fourth quarter. After Max Maciejewski caught a 26-yard touchdown pass, Ringgold attempted an onside kick, West Mifflin recovered and ran 55-yards for a score.

The Titans would later add a 100-yard interception for a touchdown to put the game out of reach.

Final score: West Mifflin 37, Ringgold 13.

With the loss, the Rams fall to 3-4 and their playoff hopes took a significant blow. Ringgold will host New Castle next week for a non-conference game at 7:00pm. It will also be Senior Night and festivities will be again at 6:15pm.
