A strong defensive effort gave Westchester its first Western League victory, a 24-3 home win over Palisades. The Comets (3-5, 1-2) scored one touchdown on an interception return and recovered a fumble to set up another score. “This year they have been the team’s strength,” first-year Westchester coach Adrian Ivory said of the Comets’ defense. “It helped that we had a couple key players back this week. Our team speed was an advantage in this game on both sides of the ball.” Quarterback Kalan Collins put Westchester on the scoreboard on the second possession when he scrambled 46 yards for a touchdown. On Palisades’ next possession, defensive end Matt Bahar recovered a Palisades fumble. Andre Buford, who had 100 yards rushing on 13 carries, scored on a 25-yard run following a penalty.

Palisades (2-6, 1-2) managed a field goal in the third quarter, but Dominique Starks finished the Dolphins in the fourth quarter when he returned an interception 55 yards for the final Westchester score. La Salle used a balanced offense and a suffocating defense which forced five Mary Star turnovers en route to a 34-6 Camino Real League victory in Pasadena. “We didn’t play very well,” Stars coach Dino Andrie said. “We had some opportunities but didn’t capitalize on them and we turned the ball over too many times.” La Salle (4-5, 2-0) started quickly, scoring on its first possession on a 43-yard scoring strike from junior Chase Rettig to Michael Palffy to put the Lancers up 7-0 midway through the first quarter. With La Salle leading 10-0 with 10 seconds left in the first half, Mary Star senior quarterback Brian Bornemann was hit while trying to throw a pass. The ball popped into the air and landed in the waiting arms of senior defensive lineman Brandon France, who returned it 57 yards for a touchdown and a 17-0 Lancers lead at halftime. Midway through the fourth quarter Troy Fiamengo returned a punt 70 yards to the 22-yard line. Two plays later, Mary Star (3-5, 1-2) got into the end zone on an 18-yard touchdown catch by Nicholas Gioiello on a pass from Bornemann.
