A band of wild Westlake Warrior football players and their coaching staff found their way to the Simi highlands and took some names while stampeding to a 38-0 victory over a Royal High School Football team that was unwilling to roll over, but eventually did. Tavior Mowry helped lead the stampede, gaining 112 yards on 17 carries behind an offensive line that continues to open some impressive holes in opposing defenses. On the other side of the ball, Michael Tack had the entire crowd standing on a 90 yard sprint for a touchdown right before the 1st half ended after literally picking a pass from the hands of a Highlander receiver at the Warrior 10 yard line.
The stampeding Warriors put fear in the hearts of the Highlanders, shutting them out 38-0.
