In recent years, the Rams and Witches have played a preseason game but this one counts for playoff points, for Bangor in Class A and Brewer in Class B.
The Bangor - Brewer event has had a little bit of everything over the years...
> That first year of play back in 1903, the teams actually played three times. The Rams won the first two while the Witches won the last one.
> There have been several ties and some overtime games. There has been one forfeit back in 1931. And, there was a game that got called of at halftime due to a power outage that cut the lights.
> Bangor owns the overall record at 73-26-8. Brewer has won the last four times, including a 26-12 win last year.
> In this time of roster counts, the Rams have 54 players and the Witches have 39. Both roster counts include freshmen players.
