Westlake at Oaks Christian

Westlake at Oaks Christian – It’s the game of the week in beautiful Westlake Village. This game has been 11 years in the making and both schools, which are less than a mile away from each other, are looking forward to it. Westlake (3-0) is ranked the top team in the state of California in many polls and will get their second major test of the year. Their first, against Thousand Oaks, was passed with flying colors. The Warriors are led by RB Tavier Mowry, who is averaging 13.1 yards per carry. Mowry and WR Nelson Spruce give the Warriors big play potential and can take it to the house at any moment. Starting QB Nick Isham isn’t too shabby himself. He knows how to get his entire offense involved. In just three games, he has completed 78 percent of his passes to 13 different Warrior receivers. Oaks Christian (2-1) already had a miraculous come-from-behind victory against St. Bonaventure and comes in looking to make their second statement of the young season. It’s unclear who will start at QB for the Lions, but Richie Harrington has really outperformed Trevor Gretzky so far. Harrington has thrown for six touchdowns and no interceptions, while Gretzky has recorded only one touchdown compared to three interceptions. The teams was so excited for Harrington, that they nicknamed him “Falco” in practice. Although I’m an Oaks alum, I have to go with my head on this pick. The Lions are not deep enough to contend with Westlake throughout the course of the game and really pulled a rabbit out of a hat just to beat St. Bonaventure two weeks ago. Also, the shaky placekicking may really cost them should this game be close.

Prediction: Westlake 34 Oaks Christian 20
