The Rams head to the Dog house on Friday night to take on the 5 and 1 Livonia Bulldogs.
Since 1992 The Rams lead the series 11 to 9.  They have won the last 2 out of 3. The last 3 out of 5 and the last 6 out of ten.
2 years ago. the Rams traveled to the Dog house and beat Livonia for the League title 37-6.
Last year Livonia came to town with revenge on their mind. The Bulldogs beat Bath 42-6.
In the last 10 games only 3 games have been one score games.
One more was a 2 score game.
The Rams are 1-2  since 1998 in one score games against Livonia
2-3 since 1998 in two score games against Livonia and 3 score games the Rams are 6 and 4.
The Rams have shut out Livonia 6 times. The Livonia has shut out Bath 4 times. 
So 10 of the 20 games have been decided by 3TDS's or more and 10 out of the 20 games somebody has been shut out.
The Rams are 5 and 5 at the Dog house.
Overall in the 20 games.
the Rams average 18.1 points.  Livonia averages 16.2
In the 10 games at the Dog house the Rams have scored 172 points and Livonia has scored 177.
Yet those 10 games have been decided by a combined 198 points. That is an average margin of victory of 19.8 per game at the Dog house.
The Bath Rams are 1-2 against Livonia in Week 7 games. The last time they played in Week 7 was 2004.
Friday Night Defense beware.
Livonia is the highest scoring offense in Section V with 284 points. That is good for an average of 47.3 points per game. The Rams are 6th in Scoring with 225. That is 37 points per game. So the two teams have scored over 500 points combined already this year.
Livonia is 3rd in fewest points allowed with 49. Hornell scored 35 of those. Bath is 28th with 115.
Both Livonia and Bath lost to Hornell 35-14.
Livonia gave up 150 yards on the ground to Hornell.  The Rams gave up 174.
However, Hornell burned both thru the air.  138 yards and 4TD's against Livonia and 195 and 3TD's against Bath.
In Common Opponents which includes Hornell/Wellsville/Dansville.
Livonia has scored 118 points. Bath has scored 111. Livonia has given up 35 and Bath has given up 76.
Livonia scored 400 points last year.
So this could be a high scoring game. Livonia is very fast and has a really good passing attack. Two things Coach Carroll says are weak links in his football team at this point. Speed and pass defense.
The Rams will need to get pressure on the Bulldogs QB. Bath has 7 sacks on the season, 5 Fumble recoveries and 2 Interceptions.
The Black Shirts need to do all 3 of those. Sack the QB. Force fumbles and get a pick or two on Defense.
Livonia gave up 150 yards on the ground to Hornell.  The Rams gave up 174.
However, Hornell burned both thru the air.  138 yards and 4TD's against Livonia and 195 and 3TD's against Bath.
These two programs have 10 sectional titles combined. 6 for Bath and 4 for Livonia.
Their last Title came in 1993.
The Bulldogs have been so close since 2009.
The Bulldogs have made it to the Section V Title game 5 out of the last 8 years. 4 out of the last 6, and 2 out of the last 3.
Lossing to Batavia in the title game in 2014,2015 and losing to Batavia in the Semi's last year.
John Gammon is in his 5th year at Livonia and has a record of 28-7
Coach Carroll is 2 and 1 against Gammon.
Will this be a close game like in 2013 when Bath lost at Livonia 20 to 14 or in 2012 when Bath beat Livonia 15 to 14  
Or another blow out like the last two years.
