The Westlake Warriors grabbed for the brass ring and took the Marmonte League title from the Moorpark Musketeers en route to a perfect 10-0 regular season record. At home in front a capacity crowd of nearly 7,200 spectators the ‘underdog’ Warriors dominated from start to finish with an explosive offense that lit up field like the 4th of July. To make it even more impressive was that the Westlake Warriors did this to  a Moorpark defense that had only surrendered an average of roughly 7 points against all other Marmonte League competitors all season long. The night began with a wonderful Westlake Football tradition of recognition of all the Senior Warrior players and their families in front of the entire stadium at a ceremony prior to kickoff where each player presented their parents with a rose and a letter of appreciation for all their support. Thanks to Coach Jim Benkert and the entire coaching staff for their hard work and dedication to make this season something truly special. And it ain’t over yet!

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.
Stampeding Warriors put fear in the hearts of opposing team.

“A good defense will bend but not break” – a quote of unknown origin, but an often used phrase by many a wise defensive coordinator. The photos below highlight some great defensive plays made in the recent Warrior victory over Royal:

The first Marmonte league game of the season against the archrival Thousand Oaks Lancers proved to be the toughest contest for the Westlake Warriors so far this season. The Warriors, back in their home stadium after two weeks on the road, to a “standing room only” crowd prevailed with an impressive combination of offensive firepower. This offensive onslaught, combined with their consistently improving defensive squad proved too much to handle for their visiting opponent.
