The Westview Wolverines (2-0) walked away Friday night with their heads held high after improving to 2-0 on the season in a 28-0 shutout against the Rancho Buena Vista Longhorns (1-1).
Last year, Rancho Buena Vista High School beat Westview by merely one point in a Week Two match-up, but the Wolverines were looking for redemption this year.
Westview took the field tonight with the intention to win, and did just so with their shutout defense and active offense.
Rancho Buena Vista had a hard time gaining any sort of momentum on the offensive side of the ball against Westview’s defense.
The Wolverines’ defensive line made it difficult for the Longhorns’ offensive line to open up any sort of lanes for rushers to gain yardage on the field.
Rancho Buena Vista had to rely heavily on their passing game, but Westview was also able to secure coverage down the line, resulting in the shutout victory.
The tenacious offense that the Wolverines displayed on the field gave them an extra advantage as they went up against the Longhorns’ defense.
Wolverines senior running back Marcellus Kamins was named player of the game after scoring two huge touchdowns in the second half, both of them coming from lateral passes from senior quarterback Beau Nelson.
Westview will travel to Cathedral Catholic (0-2) next Friday for Week Three of the Prep Pigskin Report. The Wolverines will try to keep their winning streak alive while the Dons are still searching for their first win of the season.
Rancho Buena Vista will be facing their cross town rival next week, the Vista Panthers (1-1), for a non-conference game.

Both Westview and Rancho Buena Vista High School picked up wins their first week of the 2017 season, but only one team can come out victorious in this week’s match-up.
