|Rocks Varsity Football topped the Hamilton Southeastern Royals Friday night, 34-20, to crown the Homecoming celebration.Offensively, the Shamrock O-Line dominated up front, leading to a several big runs for player of the game Elvin Caldwell. Caldwell had a pair of the 36 yard touchdown runs that helped bury the Royals.
The Rock Defense frustrated HSE’s offense, not allowing anything easy for what has traditionally been a very solid run attack. Jacob Robinson anchored the D-Line, and the consistent play of LB Stan Mattingly stymied the Royals. Noah Smith had the big play of the night, chasing down one of the fastest players in the conference for a shoestring tackle that saved a touchdown.
Shamrock Special Teams had a solid showing Friday, as well. Noah Smith again came up big here with great play across the board. Matt Crupi added consistency, while Nick Dowd drilled field goals from the 21 and 15 yard line to help extend the Rock lead.
Special mention should be given to Liam Jagow, Davion Gibson, and Hank Grenda. These Rocks made significant contributions in preparing the team for the Friday contest. They were key wolves during the week, providing the best possible look for their fellow packmates.
Choose to be Great and support Rocks Football next Friday, when Westfield will travel to Brownsburg High School to take on the Bulldogs. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00pm.
