Game Preview: Westbrook v. Gorham (Friday, August 31)












The Westbrook Blue Blazes (0-0-0) look to open their 2012 season with an upset win on the road against the Gorham Rams (0-0-0) Friday night at 6p.

The Blazes are coming off a tough 2011 season that saw the team finish 2-10-2 and fail to qualify for the playoffs for the third year in a row. The Rams' 2011 campaign included an 11-3 regular season, but ended when the No. 4 seed lost 2-0 to top-ranked Scarborough in a Western Class A Semifinal game. The Rams are currently ranked No. 4 in WCSH's initial Top Five Poll.

Recent history favors Gorham in this matchup. They have won 7 of the last 9 matchups between the two teams since 1990, including a decisive 10-0 win over Westbrook in 2011.
