Players to Watch:Dansville — Evan Pruonto (RB/LB), Ryan Carnevale (RB/DB), Billy Barrett (QB/DB), Cameron Cartwright (OL/DL), Shane Crandall (OL/DL), Ryan Frazer (OL/DL), Aiden Mangano Mays (WR/DB). Livonia — Alex Minnehan (QB/DB), Jake Smith (RB/LB), Steffan Gwyn (TE/DL), Shaun Weterrings (OL/DL), Michael Bean (OL/DL), Troy Galbraith (WR/DB), Kevin Travis (RB/DB).

3 Keys to Watch:

1.     Five different players had carries for the Mustangs last weekend, and they will need all five players to step up and produce again this week if they are going to keep up with the high-powered Bulldogs offense.

2.     The key to stopping Livonia is to stop Alex Minnehan. Minnehan is clearly one of the best players in Section V, and can run and pass with a high rate of efficiency. If the Mustangs can keep Minnehan from making an impact, they will have a great opportunity to win the game.

3.     Dansville and Livonia each allow right around two touchdowns per game. Whichever defense is able to keep the other team under two touchdowns will win this contest.
