Westlake honored its 61 seniors in a ceremony before the game, and one of the seniors who hasn’t seen the field a lot made one of the biggest plays of the game. With 1:25 left in the second quarter, Reagan Street turned what was a 5-yard out route into a 40-yard touchdown with pure grit and determination, breaking through two Akins defenders and then turning on the jets to the end zone. Following the point after, Westlake led 41-0 and then tacked on a 47-yard field goal by Spencer Barnett as time expired in the first half to lead 44-0 at the break.

Junior Grady Barlett scored twice, once on offense with an 8-yard run and the other on special team with a 62-yard punt return. His big return score was the first for the Chaps this season and came with 6:44 left in the third quarter to end the Chaps’ scoring.

Westlake head coach Tony Salazar was able to get some third and fourth-string players into the game in the second half, and that’s exactly what he wanted to do.

“A lot of guys got to play, and they made some plays,” Salazar said. “It was a big-time win for us with some of the seniors making some plays. The kids were cheering each other on and were happy for each other when they made plays. That’s a family, and that’s what we are.”

Jack Kayser scored twice in the first half in limited action. He scored on the first play from scrimmage with a 3-yard run after Westlake recovered a fumble, and then he made some nifty moves with 3:03 left in the opening quarter to score from 20 yards out.

Paxton Land threw a pair of touchdowns, the 40-yarder to Street and a 17-yard strike to Cal Livengood in the first quarter. Backup quarterback Rees Wise hit Brody Wilhelm for a 15-yard score in the second quarter on a 4th-and-5 play and running back Nate Acosta scored on a 24-yard run. Livengood provided a key lead block to spring Acosta loose on the play.

Westlake senior defensive back Aiden Schwarzbach snagged his first career interception with 8:34 left in the third quarter.

Akins had a couple of big gains on offense but couldn’t put anything together and were held scoreless for the third consecutive game. Jammal Loving was involved in both big plays, a 17-yard reception he hauled in off a deflection in the first quarter and a 16-yard run on a reverse in the second to convert a 3rd-and-11.

The play of the night for the Eagles, at least from a pure effort standpoint, came from punter Jose Nunez. After mishandling the long snap, Nunez picked the ball and began to run for his life, eluding two Westlake defenders bearing down on him, then breaking two other tackles before eventually getting a decent punt away to midfield.

Westlake (3-0, 1-0 6A-District 26) has a week off to prepare for the Battle of the Lakes against Lake Travis on Sept. 22. Akins (0-3, 0-1) takes on Lake Travis next week.

9:14 4Q: Sometimes people show their best effort in high-stress moments, and Akins punter Jose Nunez is one of those people. He mishandled a looping snap deep in his own territory, and he breaks through several tackles while running for his life, and he somehow got the punt off as he was being tackled. He sent the punt to about midfield. Incredible effort after he let the snap go through his hands.

11:47 4Q: Akins’ defense bows its neck and stuffs the Chaps on 4th down to get the ball back on an Isaac Navarro tackle. Akins takes over on their own 21-yard line.
