The Brewer Witches used their ground and pound game to beat the Bangor Rams 22-0 in the Friday night exhibition game at Doyle Field.

It's the second straight year the Witches have beaten the Rams in the preseason tester.

Tyler Hafford opened the scoring with 6:40 left in the first quarter. He ran back a 41-yard punt return. The two-point conversion was good for an 8-0 Brewer lead.

The score the same until early in the third quarter when fullback Garrett Ireland scored on a 4-yard run. The two-point play failed but the Witches led 14-0.

Meanwhile, Bangor's offense sputtered all night, gaining less than 100 total yards.

Fullback Trey Wood scored the game's final touchdown on a 1-yard run. Add on the two-point conversion and that's how it ended, 22-0.

NOTE: Bangor opens its regular season at Edward Little HS next Friday night. Brewer begins at Nokomis next Saturday afternoon. Both game can be heard on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket and 929theticket.com.
