SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KXAN) — Westlake has made a habit of reaching the region finals in recent years.
The last time the Chaparrals didn’t reach at least the fourth round of the postseason was 2014 — head coach Todd Dodge’s first season with the team.
The streak continues in 2019 after a 45-14 win against Weslaco East Friday at Alamo Stadium in San Antonio. Westlake will face San Antonio Brandeis in the 6A-Division 2 Region 4 Finals. The Chaps defeated Brandeis 26-0 in the 2018 region finals at the Alamodome.
Westlake’s defense is a force to be reckoned with allowing less than 10 points a game this season. The Chaps gave up two touchdowns to Weslaco East, but they both came in the fourth quarter with Westlake leading 45-0.
The Chaps held their previous five opponents to a touchdown or less. Westlake defeated San Antonio Brennan 24-6 last week in the area round.
Weslaco East (9-3, 6-0) ran the table in 6A-District 31 for the district championship.
