AUSTIN (KXAN) — Westlake’s defense proved it’s still the real deal.

In a high-profile playoff match-up against Cibolo Steele, the Chaparrals’ defense was relentless for a 30-7 6A-Division 2 bi-district playoff win.

The Chaps held their ninth opponent to a touchdown or less in 11 games this season. Westlake (10-1) trailed Cibolo Steele (8-3) 7-6 in the second quarter, but reeled off 24 straight points.

Both, the Chaparrals and the Knights, entered this contest ranked in the 6A state rankings. Westlake came in at No. 12 and Cibolo Steele ranked No. 23.

Westlake kicked a field goal in the final seconds of the second quarter for a 16-7 halftime lead. The Chaps added two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to gain full separation.

Westlake will face San Antonio Brennan (9-2) in the area round next week. Brennan defeated San Antonio Roosevelt 35-13 Thursday night.
