After a slow start last week, the Bulldogs began their first playoff game with a bang, scoring their first touchdown after only 1:49. From there, they ran away with the game. On the ensuing punt, the West Warwick returner fumbled the ball. Westerly recovered it at the 26 yard line, and Tristan Turano threw a touchdown pass to Jon Brutcher.
With a 14 point lead, the defense pushed West Warwick back five yards, forcing a punt. On the first play of the next drive, Turano scored again.
Three touchdowns, three and a half minutes, zero first downs for the opposition. That’s how you start a postseason.
Westerly would score once more in the quarter on a Turano run, and at the start of the second, Jalen Valentin threw a touchdown pass to Nick Lauzon. The Bulldogs decided to go for two, but the pass was blocked. After a 40 yard Valentin touchdown run, Westerly had a chance to score again, but the ball was fumbled in the end zone. The score at the half: Westerly 41 West Warwick 0.
Westerly would score only once in the second half thanks to an Isaiah Luzzi touchdown. The huge 47-0 win restored the team’s confidence, and made a big statement. They will play against Woonsocket, the number one seed in Division II A who lost to Westerly by a score of 62-12 earlier this season, on November 10 in East Greenwich. If they win that game, they will face the winner of the Burrillville/East Greenwich semifinal in the Division II Super Bowl.
