One game, one win for Galion as the Tigers stopped rival Bucyrus 29-22, in the opener for both teams last week. A win is a win, but for Galion coach Chris Hawkins, while giving credit to the Redmen says if his team wants to be two-for-two as they travel to Madison on Friday they'll need to clean things up. Hawkins sited bad decisions and putting the ball on the ground five times on offense as issues that needs to be fixed before Friday. The Tigers also out gained Bucyrus 309 yards to 220 with the bulk of that, 183 yards coming on the ground. Defensively, Galion held Bucyrus to just nine yards on 22 tries.

With Madison on the schedule this week, the Tigers will try to do the same with Madison's ground game. In the Rams 34-0 win at Shelby, Madison rolled up 421 yards of offense with 278 yards coming on the ground in 44 rushing attempts. Friday will also mark the opening of Madison's new field, Startek Stadium at Ram Field. Because of opening ceremonies the game time kickoff has been pushed back from 7 to 7:30pm.

The Tigers were involved in a similar situation in week one during the 2011 season when Galion played Mansfield Senior at newly renovated Arlin Field. Despite leading in the second half 20-7, Mansfield rallied for a 34-20 win.  Galion would finish 2011 at 8- 2, while the Tygers finished at 3-7. Galion downed Madison at Heise Park last season 21- 10.
