Both the Mansfield Tygers and the Madison Rams came out big winners in week one of the football season. The Tygers with a strong second half knocked off Big Walnut 28-7, the Rams beating Shelby 54-6. But both coaches Chioke Bradley at Senior High, and Sean Conway at Madison, though happy with winning, have each taken it with a grain of salt. Bradley says his team must get better and needs to develope more of a running game. He also has warned his players not to get "full of themselves" because you have won one game. Mansfield will travel to Lima Senior on Friday. The Spartans went through a rough 2012, going 0-10 and lost their first game last week to Beechwood, Kentucky 20-14. Madison rolled in the second half of their game against Shelby winning 54-6 at home. Coach Conway recognized the fact that Shelby's offense was limited as to what they could do against the Rams due to the injury of their starting quarterback Lukas Ousley in the teams preview the Friday before against Galion. Conway says Madison needs to be much more consistent on both ends of the ball, especially this week as the team preps for Galion. The Tigers like Madison, won big in week one at Milford Center Fairbanks 40-12. The Rams rolled up 429 yards of total offense, while the Tygers had 362 yards with 16 first downs. Madison will look for their third consecutive 2-0 start on Friday, while Mansfield Senior looks to go 2-0 for the first time since 2010, when the Tygers got off to a 3-0 start.
