A battle of unbeatens ended with the Lockport Rampage on top of the Monroe County Sting 26-20 tonight at Outwater Park's Exchange Field.

Lockport's semi-pro team started and ended the game solid, opening with a 50-yard touchdown from Lamont Rhim to Chris Montgomery and ending with a sack by Marcus White.

It was back and forth in between those plays with solid offensive and defensive play by the Rampage needed to get the win over the Sting, SPF Football champs last year.

Offensively, Rhim passed for 173 yards and three touchdowns. Aside from the Montgomery TD, Nick Peterson caught two, as well.

On the defensive end, Isaiah Johnson had two sacks and a forced fumble and LA Taylor had a pair of interceptions. The standout defensive play of the game, though, was by Cliff McDowell, who stripped the Sting running back in the fourth quarter and took it to the house for a 70-yard TD, putting the Rampage up 24-20. Derrick Adams added the two-point conversion for the 26-20 final.

Helping to inspire the team, Joe Taylor played the first half. Rampage owner Roland Davis said Taylor's presence helped to intensify the team. Taylor's last game with the Rampage was a pre-season game in 2014 when he broke his leg. After that, he shifted his focus to fighting, where he's impressed crowds at Lockport's Kenan Center and around the country. But tonight, he played football.

"Just the guys seeing him out there," Davis said, was the boost the team needed to help edge out the Sting.

"It's always been a tough tough rivalry," Davis said of the relationship with the Monroe County team.

After an undefeated 2014 season, the Rampage are off to a 4-0 regular-season start again.

"We're planning on going far this year," David said. " ... again."

The Rampage have a short break before their next game. They play the Nickel City Kings on July 11 in Wheatfield.
