PLAY OF THE GAME: On Westside’s first offensive play from scrimmage, running back Demetris Spearman broke containment for a 60-yard score.

STAR OF THE GAME: Spearman. On 15 carries, he rushed for a game-high 152 yards and three scores.

WHY WESTSIDE WON: Keeping the ball on the ground, Westside put the contest out of reach with four rushing TD’s in the second quarter.

WHY BUTLER LOST: It struggled to contain Westside’s defensive front seven, which combined for six sacks and two fumble recoveries in the opening half.

QUOTABLE: “We weren’t our sharpest tonight, but I’m still proud of kids for going on the road and getting a victory,” Westside head coach Steve Hibbitts said. “Also, I want to give Butler a lot of credit for fighting back and not laying down in the second quarter. That’s a credit to their coaches and players.”

NEXT: Hephzibah at Westside (2-0), Friday; Butler (0-2) vs. Wayne County, Sept. 20.
