RF Rams Lose in Championship
A dream of a cinderella march to the state championship in Boys soccer came to a resounding thud today at Dicks Sporting Goods Park as the Roaring Frok Rams were shut out 5-0 by Kent Denver.
For The Sun Devils of Kent it was their 5th State Title in the last six years. It was the first time the Rams had played in the state championship.
here is something about Dick’s Sporting Goods Park that just brings out the best in Pace Billings and his teammates.
The Sun Devils finished at 20-0 season while the Rams take a runner up trophy to go along with their 15-3-1 mark for the 2019 season that saw them advancing one step further than last year's squad.
to the CHSAA website:
Fifth-seeded Roaring Fork (15-3-1) played Kent Denver as tough as anyone had this season through the first 50 minutes of play. It wasn’t until 10 minutes had gone by in the second half that Kent Denver finally broke through, as Rawson Welch sent a perfect cross to the left side of the field. Billings was there to finish it off, putting the team on top to stay.
“We practice crossing all the time. We put it in the mix, as our coach likes to say,” Billings said. “It was a great ball. He made it easy for me.”
Midway through the second half Billings again took a cross, this time from Max Hewitt, and punched it home to make it 2-0. That ignited a three-goal outburst in less than three minutes, with Billings and Hewitt adding goals.
