WESTFIELD, NJ - In its second home game of the season on Sept. 21, Westfield varsity football team beat Hillsborough High School, 29-8. Eugene Rawles scored three touchdowns in the victory.

The first points of the game were gained with a  touchdown by Westfield with three minutes and 21 seconds left in the first quarter on a 2-yard run by Eugene Rawles. 

After Hillsborough tied the game, Westfield scored with 50 seconds left in the first half, taking the Blue Devils to take the lead again with a score of 15-8.

The score going into fourth quarter was 22-8 after another touchdown by the Blue Devils with a minute and 15 seconds left on the clock. Westfield's Jack Simcox scored a touchdown during fourth quarter. 

 Westfield Head Coach James DeSarno said the team’s goals after the win remain unchanged.

“We just want to improve on last year and make playoffs ... get better each week. We were coming out of 2-8 last year, so really we don't have any lofty goals besides making playoffs,” said DeSarno.

The Westfield Blue Devils will play in their next game on Sept. 27 at Phillipsburg.
