WINTHROP — The Winthrop/Monmouth football team took a lead into halftime Friday night, but four lost fumbles and too many penalties ultimately caught up to the Ramblers in a 14-7 loss to Lisbon at Maxwell Field.

“Whenever we got a chance to get some good field possession we hurt ourselves with turnovers or penalties,” Ramblers coach Dave St. Hilaire said. “In the first half we held them to negative yardage until they hit a long pass over the middle.”

The Greyhounds got the go-ahead touchdown trailing 7-6 in the third quarter following a Winthrop/Monmouth turnover deep in Rambler territory. On the play, quarterback Tyler Halls hit Tyrese Joseph on a 15-yard completion. Halls then rushed for the two-point conversion.

“We couldn’t get any offensive momentum going in that second half,” St. Hilaire said.

Alec Brown got the Ramblers on the scoreboard first with a two-yard touchdown rush in the second quarter as Winthrop/Monmouth went ahead 7-0 following Tyler Cote’s extra point.

The Greyhounds responded soon after despite Winthrop/Monmouth having stymied them up until that point, as Halls connected with Henry Adams on a 58-yard touchdown pass. Halls’ point-after try hit the upright, though, to keep the Ramblers — for the time being — out in front.
