West Hills 41, Imperial 27

 West Hills won its first playoff game this season after defeating the Imperial Tigers 41-27. 

Things started to heat up in the second quarter.

Imperial running back Jon Lee got the Tigers on the board with an 11-yard touchdown run to tie it up at 7.

West Hills answered right back. Running back Alfonso Gregg scored a quick 2-yard touchdown to put West Hills up 13-7. 

Near the end of the half, Wolf Pack receiver Raphy Carr caught a 32 yard pass from Spencer Moyer to set up a 1-yard touchdown run from Jacob Shaw. West Hills extended their lead 20-7. 

In the third quarter, a Tigers receiver was unable to catch a pass from quarterback Aaron Bonillas. Wolf Pack defensive back Devon Hathaway came out of the back field, scooped up the ball and ran 55-yards for the touchdown. West Hills leads 27-7.

The Wolf Pack offense wasn’t done yet. 

A few plays later, Moyer connected with Taj Broomfield on a 63-yard catch and run all the way to the end zone. West Hills extends the lead to 34-7.

Imperial wasn’t going home just yet. 

Captain Mark Benedict scored on an 18-yard touchdown run to get the Tigers back in the game. West Hills now leads 34-14.

A couple plays later, Tigers Zeke Hernandez exploded on a 27-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 34-21.

In the fourth quarter, Devon Hathaway 2-yard touchdown gave the Wolf Pack a little bit of breathing room. 

Imperial would get one more touchdown on the board, but were not able to keep the ball out of the Wolf Pack’s hands. 

West Hills will travel to Brawley next Friday to take on the Wildcats, who are coming off a first round bye.
