Shepherd Football… Headed to the National Championship Game

25 January 2016 Local Sports


In front of a tremendous crowd of over 6,000 at Ram Stadium on Saturday (12.12) afternoon, the Shepherd Rams survived the ebbs and flows of a hard hitting, big play filled game holding off Grand Valley State 34-32. Shepherd led 14-3 after 1 and held that same lead at the half. Grand Valley had a solid 3rd quarter to take a 17-14 lead into the 4th, before Shepherd went up 34-19. The Lakers rallied to get the potential game tying score with under a minute left, but could not get the 2-point conversion. The Rams ran out the clock to improve to a school record 13-0 and will now play for the National Championship on Saturday (12.19) in Kansas City, Kansas. Kickoff at 4pm…our pregame begins at 3.
