Ziemba recognized after strong performance vs Framingham State
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Graduate student Zach Ziemba (Manchester, N.H.) was recognized by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) by appearing on the Football Weekly Honor Roll after his impactful performance in Saturday's 16-13 overtime win over previously unbeaten Framingham State University.
Ziemba stuffed the box score with nine tackles (four solo), a forced fumble (that he recovered) and a blocked kick. He wasted little time making an impact on the game.
On Framingham's first possession the 5-11 defensive back stripped a Rams' receiver, then covered up the loose ball to give the Panther offense outstanding field position.
In the second quarter, with the Panthers holding 6-0 lead, it looked as though FSU would break through. The Rams drove 39 yards in 12 plays and were set up for a 40-yard field goal attempt, but Ziemba came off the edge to make the block and keep Framingham State off the scoreboard.
The Panthers (6-1, 4-1 MASCAC) moved into first place with the win, a half-game ahead of Framingham State (5-1, 3-1 MASCAC) and Western Connecticut (5-1, 3-1 MASCAC). PSU will travel to Massachusetts Maritime Academy for a 1:00 p.m. game this Saturday (Oct. 21).
