After an undefeated regular season and march through the New England region, the West Lynn (Mass.) Rams fell in the semifinals of the Midget (12- to 14-year-olds) Division II Pop Warner National Championships held at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.
The Rams made their way to the semifinals after a sound 29-0 defeat of the Ypsilanti (Mich.) Panthers on Dec. 1. West Lynn would then have to take on the Palm Bay (Fla.) Rockets for an opportunity to play for the national title.
Unfortunately for the boys of West Lynn, they came up just short, falling to the Rockets 18-6. The Rams had an opportunity to score early, but a fumble inside the 5-yard line halted their momentum. The Rockets scored 18 consecutive points before the Rams got on the board.
