Late TD’s propel Eastside over Santa Fe; Ram’s first win of the season


The Eastside Rams’ struggles in 2020 finally ended, at least for one night.

Taking advantage of two fourth quarter touchdowns to blow open a close game, the Rams defeated the Santa Fe Raiders 20-3 in week nine high school football action Friday night.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Eastside got on the scoreboard first with a touchdown in the second quarter. Santa Fe cut the lead with a field goal to make it 7-3 at the half.
