WSSU turns attention toward Catawba

SALISBURY, North Carolina -- It’s a usual occurrence that college football teams see the most improvement heading into their second game.

Coach Kienus Boulware of Winston-Salem State hopes that’s true. The Rams suffered a 20-17 loss on Saturday in their opener to UNC Pembroke and are trying to shake off that loss to focus on Catawba this weekend.

“There’s no time to ever push the panic button because that will trickle down to the players,” Boulware said. “We’ve got a lot of good that happened to us this past weekend, so we’ll try to add to that as we head down to play Catawba.”

While there was some good for the Rams, like jumping out to a 17-0 lead, there was plenty that went wrong in the second half as UNC Pembroke mounted its charge.

Despite losing their fourth straight regular-season nonconference game going back to last season, defensive end Kyrell Williamson said that the Rams are determined to redeem themselves. They will take on the Indians, which opened their season with a 23-3 loss on the road to West Georgia.
