Despite putting up a fight and playing hard all night long, the Warriors fell to the Lake Travis Cavaliers 7-52 in their first district playoff game, losing their spot in the playoffs.

Even though the Warrior offense was unable to score the first half of the game, several great plays were made by the defense. One of the great defensive plays of the night was the Warriors’ ability to block a kick by Lake Travis early in the first half. In addition, the defense forced several turnovers in 4th down situations, giving the ball back to the Warrior offense.

However, this was not enough to permit the offense to score during the first half, allowing Lake Travis to take a lead of 0-28.

But, keeping to the slogan on the back of their new black-and-white jerseys, the Warriors promised to “never quit” going into the second half.

With around five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, sophomore quarterback Jack Swensen was able to throw to junior wide receiver Nick Andress to put the first points on the board for the Warriors. Following a good field goal by sophomore kicker Josh Burton, the Warriors increased the score to 7-52.

“Westwood had a valiant effort last night,” said sophomore Christian Isenhour. “But we came up short in the end. It was a good game.”

This game concluded the 2013 Westwood football season until next year, finishing with 4 wins and 6 losses under their belt.
