Berea, Ohio–  Week 2 in the 2018 high school football Season is here and that means conference play has begun in the Southwestern Conference.  Our game of the week takes us to Finnie Stadium as the visiting Westlake Demons (0-1, 0-0) take on the Berea- Midpark Titans. Each team suffered a Week 1 loss and looked to rebound in Week 2.

The Titans got off to a blazing fast start, driving 73 yards in the first 40 secons of the opening quarter. Senior QB Trevor Bycznski connected with senior WR Garrett Waite on a 13-yard TD pass.  Berea-Midpark jumped out an early 7-0 lead.

After a missed 29-yard field goal attempt by Westlake, the Titan offense was on the attack this time in only two plays, one a 77-yard throw and catch from Bycznski to senior WR Dwayne Holland. Bycznski would score on a 4-yard TD run on the very next play.  The Titans led 14-0 with 6:11 left in the first quarter.

A fumbled snap by the Demons on the next offensive possession led to another touchdown hook up between Bycznski and Holland this time for 34 yards to give the Titans a 21-0 lead.

Westlake was finally able to get on the board thanks to a 60-yard touchdown pass from senior QB Jacob May to senior WR Kevin Walls.

Berea-Midpark would score again to end the quarter, senior RB Bryce Agnew 3-yard TD.

The second quarter began with Westlake taking advantage of a muffed punt return by Berea-Midpark, and converting that into a 13-yard TD Pass from May to Walls.

The Titans still led 28-14 with 10:29 Left in the half.  Westlake’s defense was able to force a turnover on downs on the next Titan offensive possession.  The Demons drove the ball 70 yards for a score, ending with a 19-yard TD pass from May to senior WR Jacob Jablonski, the score was now 28-21 with 2:46 left in the half.

Berea-Midpark was able to score not once but twice by the end of the half. The first was a 14-yard TD run by senior RB Anthoney Miller, the second 9-yard TD Pass from Bycznski to senior WR Gage Young as time expired. At the end of the first half, Berea-Midpark led Westlake 42-21.

Westlake got the ball to start the third quarter, and it was clear that the game plan for the Demons was to slow the pace down. Westlake was able to put together a scoring drive of 64 yards, capped off by a 9-yard TD pass from May to junior WR Joseph Klessel, Titans lead was 42-28 with 6:41 remaining.

Westlake’s defense was able to slow down the Titan offense and allow only a 24-yard field goal from senior K Nicholas Ruggiero. At the end of the third quarter, Berea-Midpark led 45-28.

The Titans were able to force a Demon punt to open the fourth quarter, and wasted no time thanks to a 75-yard TD run by junior RB Jabriel Williams. The Titans led 51-28 after a missed extra point with 11:02 remaining in the game.

The Titans would score again on a 56-yard TD pass from Bycznski to Waite for a second time in the game, a missed 2-point conversion made the score 57-28 with 8:29 left in the game.

Westlake would not go quietly though as they were able to capitalize by a great kick-off return by WR Kevin Walls and later score on a 1-yard TD run by QB Jacob May.

That would prove to be enough for the Berea-Midpark Titans to earn their first win of the season with a final score of 57-35.
