PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Division II West Chester Golden Rams now sit at 5-0 on the season as they get ready for a key match-up with East Stroudsburg on Saturday at John A. Farrell Stadium.
The Golden Rams held off California University of Pennsylvania this past Saturday, 38-31, to remain undefeated.
“We did a really nice job, especially on our offensive line,” West Chester head coach Bill Zwaan tells KYW Newsradio. “I thought those guys really carried the day for us. We were able to run the ball against a team that hasn’t given up a whole lot of yardage on the ground. And especially in the fourth quarter, we pretty much ate 12 minutes of clock in the fourth quarter by being able to put two drives together to finish the game off for us. It was a really hot day, and it was really tough on those offensive lineman, but they did a great job for us down the stretch.”
Once again, the Golden Rams got a big performance in a big game from senior running back Rondell White. Against Cal, White carried the football 34 times for 145 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a team high four passes for 36 yards. For the season, White has rushed for 764 yards and ten touchdowns and caught a team high 26 passes for 292 yards and two more scores.
