The Madison Rams will try to make it two straight wins to start 2014 when they host the Galion Tigers Friday in the home opener and first official game at Startek Stadium at Ram Field. On the shutout win over Shelby in week one 34-0, the Rams went with old reliable, their running game scoring four of their five touchdowns on the ground. Juwan Howard led all rushers with a game high 158 yards on 17 carries with one touchdown, while Logan Pack scored twice with Kyle Galco also scoring from a yard out.

Madison coach Sean Conway, while happy to get the win says all phases of the game need to get better. The Rams did pass for 143 yards off the arm of Austin Finley, but 70 of those passing yards came on one play to Frank Douglas, who turned a short route into six points and Madison's final score of the evening.

This week, the Rams will try to slow down Galion's offense which rushed for 183 yards in a 29-22 win over Bucyrus. Tiger QB Jacob Fryer threw for 126 yards and two touchdown passes in week one with both of them going to Cario Davison of 34 and seven yards. Fryer also ran for another. WMFD will carry the Galion at Madison game with replay at midnight Friday and at 5pm Saturday. Because of pregame ceremonies the kickoff has been pushed back to 7:30pm. The Tigers won last year's contest 21-10.
