The Galion Tigers will try to make it seven straight wins on Friday as they travel to Wynford to take on the 3-3 Royals. The Tigers picked up win number six last week downing Buckeye Central 46-0, while the Royals fell at Upper Sandusky 26-0. Reguardless, Tigers coach Chris Hawkins expects a dog fight come Friday night at Wynford. Hawkins stated that last Friday's loss to the Rams was not an indication of what the Royals could do on offense stating the weather could have hammpered their style of offense more than Upper. The Royals are led by quarterback Brock Williamson who has thrown for 592 yards and five touchdowns, while rushing for 364 yards scoring five rushing TD's. Corey Brown leads the team in rushing with 403 yards on 83 carries with three TD's. Galion is led by quarterback Dareian Watkins who is one of the area leaders in both rushing with 934 yards and passing with 894 yards with a combined 24 touchdowns. When he does throw, one of Watkins favorite targets has been Alex Armistad with 582 yards on 26 receptions and eight touchdown grabs. Looking ahead, coach Hawkins says his team needs to keep winning to put themselves in the top four of Division IV Region 12. Currently Galion stands fifth. Hawkins says some of the best teams in the state in Division IV are in the top four of Region 12 ranked in this order heading into week seven River Valley, Kenton, Bryan and Genoa. All stand at 6-0. Galion won last year's contest in the rain at Heise Park by a final of 15-7.
