By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Like most teams, West Virginia Wesleyan gave plenty of respect to Shepherd running back Damian Beane. "It's not fun," Beane said of facing eight or nine men on the line of scrimmage. "But I told the guys, 'You know they're going to be in the box. They don't respect the wide receivers.'" Big mistake. Quarterback Matt Davis shocked the Bobcats by passing for 344 yards, and Beane still got a school record-tying four touchdowns Saturday as the Rams rode their big-play offense to a 47-31 victory on Homecoming Day. "Our offense needed to come alive and make plays," said Shepherd coach Monte Cater, who got his 100th victory in the West Virginia Conference opener for both teams.
