ANGELS FLY PAST RAMS

[sixcol_five_last]

By Robert Balajadia

The Cars Plus Rams are no strangers to dramatic comeback finishes but, the IP&E Hal’s Angels were the ones who flourished in the fourth quarter beating the defending champs 38-26 during Saturdays Miller Football League showdown.

Rams quarterback Will Williams has been known for escaping pressure and he came up big with seven minutes left to play in the fourth quarter by hitting receiver Jacob Torres after scrambling all over the backfield for a 29-yard touchdown. The Rams pulled within a single possession after converting the two-point try, 32-26 looking to make another late comeback.

The Angels responded behind the running prowess of Chris Quenga and Mike Pangelinan, taking much time off the clock until a little over a minute left in the game. Quarterback Steve Phillips went for the kill hitting his receiver for a 20+ yard touchdown on third down to extend the lead 38-26, erasing any chance of a Rams comeback.

Pangelinan punched in a red zone touchdown run early in the fourth quarter that gave the Angels the two score cushion. Williams had a tough going in the fourth getting sacked repeatedly trying to extend the plays. Ball hawking secondary play from Ryan Bigler and Curly Chandler prevented the Rams receiving core from making an impact in the fourth, with the exception of the Williams to Torres touchdown.

One of the biggest plays came from Angels kick return man Roosevelt Badgett, getting an 86-yard touchdown return to push the lead to 20-12 right after Williams scored off a QB keeper early in the third quarter. The Williams TD brought the Rams the closest they would get to the Angels after a short tie at six points, 14-12.

Badgett finished with two touchdowns, including an early score in the first quarter off a five-yard run from shotgun formation. Phillips tossed two touchdowns and was spared an interception early in the first quarter which the refs ruled as pass interference. Williams finished with two touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown for the Rams.

With the win, the Angels improve to 2-2 while dropping the Rams to the same record. MFL action continues tomorrow with the undefeated Pepsi Warriors taking on the Chili’s Falcons.
