After being outscored 110-35 in their first three games and going winless, the Albany State Golden Rams headed to Lane Field to take on the Lane Dragons needing a win in the worst way.
After Lane and Albany State alternated punts on the first three possessions of the game, Albany State would initiate the game’s first score when a 4 play, 42 yard drive was capped off when Kelias Williams found Mike Green all alone for a 24-yard touchdown pass. The extra point gave the Golden Rams a 7-0 advantage.
There was no scoring in the second period, with scoring threats mounted by ASU and Lane snuffed out by a turnover on downs for the Rams and a blocked field goal for the Dragons. Albany State would take a 7-0 lead into halftime.
In the third, scoring was limited to an Albany State 10-play, 45 yard drive that ended in a Kelias Williams 2 yard run. The extra point from Gabriel Ballinas made the score 14-0 in favor of the Golden Rams.
Lane would score their lone pints of the game (and of the quarter) in the fourth with an 18 yard touchdown pass from Marcus Reynolds to Omari Hampton that, with the extra point, took the score to its final tally of 14-7.
For Albany State, they will host Miles College on September 29. Kickoff time is 7pm EST. Lane College heads to Tuskegee next Saturday to take on the Golden Tigers at 1pm.
