The Rams of Robertson Middle came into Thursday nights game with a 4-1 record. The Oak Ridge team’s only loss came to the hands of Christian Academy in 2OT. Despite coming off a tough cross county loss to rival Spring City, the Eagles dictated the tempo and led the game until losing control in the 4th quarter.
