Westmoore got the exact type of game it wanted. Low scoring, hard hitting and physical. They also did the one thing it hadn’t been able to do in previous games against elite competition. It had zero turnovers.
“When you play Jenks and Union and those guys, you want to keep their offensive units off the field as much as possible,” Langford said. “We were fortunate this year to have the offensive line, runningbacks and quarterback to be able to do that and to control the clock and control the tempo. You get in a game like that it comes down to one or two possessions. It came down to one possession and one play and we just couldn’t get a yard.”
With the loss, Westmoore ended its season at 6-5. But the players were proud of how they represented themselves against the East side.
“We lost, but it was probably the best game we ever played,” Morgan said. “We had a lot of trouble the past few games coming together as a team. We lost, but that is probably the best game seen by any team on this side of the state.”
