Westfield beat Union, 21-14, on a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter when quarterback Trey Brown bulled his way through the middle of the Union defense for an 11-yard touchdown run with just under eight minutes left.
After a Union punt, Westfield went 60 yards on their first possession and scored on a 9-yard run through the middle by Dylan Wragg, where he faked out a defender before the goal line. Union answered right back on a drive when quarterback Omalley King found Omar Ibrahim on the left sideline, where he evaded a Westfield defender and was all alone running to the end zone for a 32-yard touchdown.
Union took the lead in the second quarter on a 52-yard run by Renick Dorilas on the jet sweep down the left sideline to put the Farmers in front, 14-7, with 1;27 left in the half.
Westfield came out with the ball in the third quarter and tied the game on a 3-yard run by Brown. The score was set up on the previous play when Wragg ran for 18 yards. Westfield began a drive that bridged the third and fourth quarters behind the running of Wragg and Brown. This set the Blue Devils up for the game winning score from Brown on fourth-and-two from the 11-yard line with 7:47 left. Union punted on their following possession and Westfield ran out the clock.
This was a competitive game I expected it to be – the reason I made the trip to Westfield. The game was not settled until the fourth quarter and the difference was Westfield running the ball when needed. Wragg rushed for 151 yards and Brown for 111, as the line of left tackle Brandon Love, left guard Bobby Sisk, center Gabe Dayon, right guard Max Romano, and right tackle Jack Martin paved the way for Wragg and Brown. It culminated with Brown barreling through the Union defense for the winning score.
