Pee Wees set all-time scoring record

The Brigantine Rams Pee Wee team finished the regular season with a record of 2-4-1. On Saturday they lost their final game 39-12 to Somers Point. Despite the score, Rams set what this writer believes is an all-time record for the Rams, Atlantic County Junior Football League, and the National Football League.

Jack Klemm and Trevor Cohen both raced over 50 yards each for the Rams two scores on Sunday. These two scores brought the team total to 13 touchdowns for the season. The unusual record is that every score has been for 40 or more yards led by Devin Lee’s 102-yard scamper. Devin Lee has eight touchdowns, Jack Klemm and Trevor Cohen two, and Kevin Dougherty one.

The moral of the story is “Stay out of the Red Zone. The farther away from the goal you are, the better chance you have to score.” (The advice is not intended for Michael Vick and the Eagles.)

Stonehill College’s Paige Frost (Holy Spirit) won the No. 4 singles and teamed with Baily Paradiso to win the doubles as the Sea Hawks closed the season at 9-0 with a spunky win over New Haven.
