Ramstein bounces back to throttle Kaiserslautern
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany – The 2011 version of the neighborhood feud against the Kaiserslautern Red Raiders turned into a 53-12 assembly-line victory Saturday for the Ramstein Royals.“The Royals scored on every possession they had in the first half,” emailed Ramstein coach Carlos Amponin about his team’s burst to a 53-6 halftime lead. “Senior tailback Jon Groteleuschen led the rushing attack with 173 yards on 21 carries and scored four TDs. Senior wingback Jaap van Gaalen ran for 105 yards on three carries and scored two TDs. Senior quarterback Steven Groenheim went two-for-four for 64 yards and a 47-yard TD. Senior tight end Justin Dickey caught both passes.”Ramstein, coming off a 26-12 upset the previous Saturday at Patch, is to host unbeaten Vilseck this Saturday. K-town (0-2) travels to Filton on Saturday.“Ramstein was clearly the superior team,” K-town coach Aaron Scalise conceded in his email. He cited 93 rushing yards and a touchdown by Treyton Simmon and 69 yards rushing by R.J. Lucas at the Red Raiders’ bright spots.
