Westhill High School suffered a devastating loss on Saturday, October 29th, to Trinity Catholic by a score of 28-14. The Vikings fell to 3-4 on the season, while the Crusaders improved to 4-3. Nick Melia got Trinity on the board first, as he scored on an 8-yard run in the first quarter. Saquan Kelly of the Vikings tied the game by running from 7 yards out at the beginning of the 2nd quarter. Trinity entered halftime with a 14-7 lead after a 16-yard touchdown pass from Nick Granata to John Petrizzi.
“Pretty much the whole game our defense played really well. We never gave up, never put our heads down and we just tried to do our best” said Brendan Holtzclaw (’17). In the 4th quarter, it was all Trinity, and Westhill couldn’t find the momentum the Crusaders had on the last home game of the season.
“Hats off to Westhill, they are a good football team and we knew we would be in for a dog fight and it was a dog fight” said Trinity head coach Donny Panapada. Westhill’s next game is against Ridgefield at Tiger Hollow Stadium on November 4th at 7PM. Trinity will go for the city championship this Saturday at Gaglio Field.
