Rams pick up the pieces
SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The Shepherd College football team suffered the most ominous of Homecomings last week.
The Rams came home from a rousing victory over West Virginia University-Tech only to trip over the doormat in a crushing loss to Fairmont.
That will very well have Shepherd staying home for the holidays.
About the only warm feeling the Rams have left to make that postseason stay at home more palatable is a fourth straight West Virginia Conference title - and even that will have to take a big turn around and a lot of luck, starting today at 1 p.m., when Shepherd plays at West Virginia State.
The Rams (4-2, 3-1) fell from the graces of the NCAA Division II rankings with the loss to the Falcons. Yet, if Shepherd can sweep its last four games, it could earn a tie for the WVC title.
