Weslake VS Lehi 2009

Everyone was so excited for this game. Both
Westlake and Lehi fans. The stand were filled. What a great start! The game ball was delivered by Helicopter. The class president and Mr. Openshaw were the two to deliver the game ball. We were ready to play some football.

The game began, what a battle it was. The score stayed at zero's for the whole first half. When the second half of the game started, our boys were ready to play. They came out strong. Playing really hard. The final score of the game was 21 to 3.

It was a really great season and so much fun to cheer on the boys and our first year of football. It will be so much fun to watch them in the years to come. They are only going to get better and win more games. It will be so fun to watch them dominate!

I want to send out a HUGE thank you to all the coaches and the great job they did with the boys. They are a really great group of men. They really worked hard with the boys not only on the field but off. So many life lessons were taught along with football skills. We really do appreciate all the they have done and hope to see all the coaches back next year.

To the booster club, thank you for all your hard work. You put in a lot of time to keep things going. Thank you again.

One last thank you to all the Parents and Fans that came out to support our Football team. It was always fun to see our stands full, even at the away games. We had to travel some distance for a few of the games, and we always had the stands full!! Hope to see you all out next year cheering on the boys!

The details for the Football banquet are being worked out. When we know all the details we will post them for you!

Westlake vs Wasatch

Westlake defeats the undefeated!

Final score 35-32. So many said no way..... our boys said all the way, and they proved it Thursday night!!! What a great game! The boys all came out really strong. They played hard. How fun to watch them win this game. They really needed it.

After the game the band was playing some music from their competition. The coaches had the whole team sit and listen to them play. He told them that the band comes to the games and they support you, so we as a team can support them. That was really cool of the coaches.

The boys are getting ready to play Timpanogos Wednesday night. The win against Wasatch really helped get them pumped up for the game.

The game is Wednesday night 7:00 p.m. at Timpanogos. We would love to see you all out supporting the team. Remember no school on Thursday!!!!!

JV and Sophomore games against Wasatch

Just had to make a quick note about the 2 games yesterday.
First JV played at 3:30. What a game. The boys really played hard, and really well. At a time we were ahead, then we fell behind.
The fourth quarter was amazing to watch. We needed two touchdowns to tie up the game. One really amazing run of the game, we kicked and on side. The ball bounced off of the opposing team, our guys retrieved the ball. After a few plays ran it in for a touchdown.
It was an exciting game all the way...... BUT....... we came down to seconds, the game was tied 28-28. We went into overtime. Each team started at the 20 yd. line to try and make a TD. Wasatch went first. They scored, then kicked for the field goal. the score was now 35-28.
Then came Westlakes turn. We scored, then went for the field goal. We missed the opportunity for the field goal. Final score 35-34. What an amazing game. The team really played a good game, and fought really hard.

Sophomores played a really great game. They were ready for a win. They looked like they were having so much playing the game. I really think the incentive the coaches put out there for the boys helped just a little;). It was fun to watch them play and to win their game!!! Final score was 34-14. Way to go boys!!!!!

Don't forget tonight's Varsity game against Wasatch. It is a home game, it starts at 7:00. Dress warm and come for some fun!!!!! See you there.

Westlake vs. Timpview

After Thursday nights game I had someone ask me how I was going to blog this game. Well after some thought on that, this is my response.

Our boys went out and played their game. They held their heads up through out the whole night. They played hard, Timpview played harder. That is how they are. Westlake played the defending champions for the last 3 years.

They may have lost the game, but in my book they are all winners. They really played a tough game, and many in new positions. The boys did what they were asked to do by their coaches.

I look forward for years to come, when our boys and the Westlake Thunder will be the team to watch out for.

The boys are looking forward to our last 3 games of the season. This coming Thursday we play Wasatch at home. The game begins at 7:00. Hope to see everyone there to cheer on the team.
