WSSU Rams coast to victory over Livingstone

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina  -- It’s hard to be a Ram, but sometimes it’s easy.

Winston-Salem State bolted to a big lead over Livingstone on Saturday afternoon before cruising to a 40-21 win at Bowman Gray Stadium.

The easy part was in the first quarter, when the Rams led 30-0 thanks to an uprising on offense that hasn’t been seen since the glory days of the run to the Division II championship game in 2012.

In the first 8 minutes, quarterback Rod Tinsley threw for three touchdowns, ran 60 yards for a another score, and defensive end Joe Wright had a safety.

“That’s a great way to start a game,” coach Kienus Boulware of the Rams said. “I wish we could have done a little more in between, but we’ll take that. We had the wind to our back in the first quarter, and the guys just came out ready to play.”

One thing that was sticking to the Rams like superglue was a statement coach Daryl Williams of the Blue Bears made in July. He said his team planned to win the Southern Division title by beating the Rams on their own field.
