WSSU Rams in good shape with two games to go

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Another step toward a goal.

That was the message coach Kienus Boulware delivered to his Winston-Salem State Rams after Saturday’s easy 40-21 win over Livingstone at Bowman Gray Stadium. As the Red Sea of Sound played on, Boulware made sure his players heard the message above the crisp beat of the WSSU marching band.

“You are close to achieving one of your goals and this was a step toward that goal,” Boulware said as the Rams inched closer to clinching their sixth straight CIAA Southern Division title.

To get their fifth straight victory, the Rams got out of the gate strong scoring 30 points in the first eight minutes of the game. It was a glorified scrimmage early on as the Rams, thanks to Rod Tinsley’s accuracy at quarterback and the wind at their backs, carved up the Blue Bears’ defense.

It was one of the best quarters the Rams have played since the 2012 season when they went all the way to the Division II national championship game.
