WESTLAKE, Ohio- On a very exciting week in Northeast Ohio with the Cleveland Indians advancing to the World Series and the anticipation of the Cavaliers raising their championship banner and ring ceremony next Tuesday, local High School Football continues this week and the stakes could not be any higher for a number of local teams vying for playoff berths.
The Westlake Demons, who come into this week with a record of 5-3, sit at #8 in Division 2, Region 6, with the OHSAA playoffs clearly in their sights. Head Coach Jason Hall’s Demons play host to the Amherst Steele Comets this Friday evening looking to improve their record and then face the Berea-Midpark Titans in the final week of the season which will determine their playoff fate.

The Comet offense has a balanced attack that averages 150 yards per game passing and 177 yards on the ground. Defensively, they are near the top of the conference with 18 sacks.
Westlake heads into tomorrow night’s battle fresh off a 52-37 win over North Ridgeville last Friday night. the Demons come into the contest with an average of 37 points per game with the bulk of the damage done through the air. On defense the Demons are also near the top of the conference in sacks and tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
