The Rockford Rams semi-pro football team had the best season of their young franchise's history, but were stopped just short of a national champinonship bid, losing 16-0 to the Chicago Cardinals in the regional championship game.

Quarterback Steve Harris (Boylan) and the usually explosive Rams offense couldn't get anything going against a ferocious Chicago pass rush and hard hitting secondary. The Rams allowed a quick score in the first quarter, but stiffened up their defense as the game continued.
