Even though it's been a tough year for the 3-5 Madison Ram football team, they saw to it last Friday that their seniors went out in style winning the team's final home game of the season and the school's final game on grass, as next year the Rams will be playing on turf, with a 20-10 win over the Orrville Red Riders. Madison's defense came up big holding the Riders to just three points and intercepting five Orrville passes. On offensive Madison's Juwan Howard and Kalvin Gordon helped the Rams rush for 266 yards. They'll need the same effort this week as Madison heads to Community Stadium to take on the 5-3 Ashland Arrows who are still fighting for a playoff spot and a chance at a conference championship just a game back of front running Mansfield Senior. The Arrows are ranked 9th in Division 2, Region 5 and need to win their final two games and hope they are able to get into the top eight after week ten. The Rams will try to slow down one of the best passing offenses in the area in Ashland led by quarterback Nick Zurcher who has thrown for over 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns through eight games. Last week, the Arrows trailed Clear Fork 35-16 at the half only to come all the way back to outscore the Colts in the second half 20-0 to win 36-35. The Arrows will end the regular season next week at Lexington, while Madison travels to Arlin Field to take on cross-town rival Mansfield Senior.
