Come Friday night, the Wynford Royals will try to make it 16 straight wins over their rival just down the road, Bucyrus. Both teams come into the game at 2-2, both also won their first NCC contest last week putting them in a four way tie for first with Upper Sandusky and Galion. But on the game itself, Bucyrus would like to change things around as the Royals have pretty much owned the contest between the two teams since Bill Clinton was president. The last Time the Redmen won was 1997. Bucyrus under second year head coach Aaron Eckert, enters with the NCC's top offense. The Redmen have averaged 453 yards a game with a scoring average of nearly 33 points a contest. Wynford comes in with the NCC's best defense giving up nearly 220 yards a game and allowing 14 points per game. Bucyrus quarterback Cole Murtiff leads the conference in passing with 928 yards on 64 of 95, with four touchdowns. Murtiff has also rushed for 340 yards with two running TD's. Wynford's Brock Williamson has thrown for 460 yards, four touchdowns and has run for 224 more and three touchdowns. Eckert says you don't have to really say anything when it comes to this game, but we want to change the ways things have been going, a win in this game would be very big for our program. Wynford senior Gage Roe, who was a part of Wynford's 63 game regular season winning streak which ended last season points out that the team takes alot of pride in having a 15 game winning streak over their rival and he does not want it to end in his senior season. The Royals won at Bucyrus in week ten last season on a cold wet night 27-13, then advanced to the playoffs for the eighth straight season and finished at 9-3, while Bucyrus finished at 4-6. Friday's kickoff at Wynford is at 7pm. Highlihgts of the contest will be seen on WMFD's Scores and More at 11:30pm Friday.
