The Comets opened the scoring with a 5 play 54 yard drive capped off by a 2 yard run by SR RB Jeremy Smith, one of 3 scores on the night. Westlake forced one of three turnovers on the night and it led to a 73 yard run by Sr. Tariq Beach to knot the game at 7 all.
Amherst went on a 6 play 65 yard drive and Smith scored from 2 yards out and the Comets had the lead 14-7. Westlake struck back behind the running of Robinson and he cashed in from 2 yards out to tie the score again, this time at 14 all. The ensuing drive saw the Demons force their second fumble and Bialowas found Sr. WR Connor Sterneckert for a 33 yard pass to end the 1st quarter scoring.
The second quarter saw the teams defenses hold serve then Smith scored his 3rd TD of the night for Amherst on an 8 yard run to tie the score at 21 apiece. Most of the mail was carried by So. RB Khennedy Scagliozzo, who dazzled all night with 30 carries, 206 yards and a score and it looked like the Comets had regained momentum. Back came Westlake, however, and Bialowas found Sr. WR Dean Schneider for a 3 yard TD pass to make the halftime score 28-21 in favor of Westlake.
The Comets came out in the 3rd quarter and went on a 9 play 79 yard drive So RB Cairo Smith took it in from 13 yards out and once again the score was knotted, 28-28. That was as close as the Comets would get to rest of the game as Bialowas and Robinson could not be stopped. Bialowas found Sterneckert for 13 and 15 yard TD’s and Robinson capped off the scoring in the 4th with a 5 yard run. Scagliozzo added an 8 yard run for Amherst’s’ final points but the game was well in Westlake’s control.
