WESTLAKE, OHIO – It was almost over before it even started on Friday night as the North Olmsted Eagles trounced the Westlake Demons 49 -7 from the opening kickoff on.
It was a game in which the Demons turned the ball over 7 total times and North Olmsted starting tailback Darren Anders found the end zone five times.
Westlake fumbled the opening kickoff to start the game and the Eagles pounced on it. From there, one play later it was standout tailback Darren Anders doing his thing, rumbling in from 3 yards out to put the Eagles ahead 7-0 less then a minute into the contest.
The Eagles star tailback Anders, would bookend the quarter with touchdowns as he once again punched it in to with 4:50 remaining in the opening quarter. This time from the two yard line. The first quarter scoring wasn’t over with yet however, as it would still see plenty of action.
This time it was the Eagles defense getting in on the act with a beautiful 26 yard pick six by defensive back Nathan Eyerman with 3:26 left. The Demons managed to score and cut the lead to 21-7 as the second quarter began. The lone Demon touchdown came on a flea flicker from Jacob May to Kevin Wall.
The Eagles weren’t phased by the late Demon touchdown and went right back on the attack in the second quarter. Sean Conroy scored on a 6 yard touchdown run that was set up by a Ryan Connolly 49 yard run. A few minutes late, North Olmsted had the ball back and it allowed Darren Anders to cash in on his third touchdown of the first half, this time from 4 yards out.
Anders and the Eagles would score again before the first half was over as he took it in from 3 yards out for his fourth touchdown of the night. The first half finished with 4 rushing touchdowns by Anders and the Eagles up 42-7 at the break.
