Halftime: North Shore 14, Westlake 7.
0:00 2Q: Westlake blocks the 41-yard field goal attempt by North Shore’s Jonathan Soto as time expires in the first half, and that’s the stop the Chaps were looking for as the teams head to their locker rooms for a well-earned break.
0:46 2Q: Westlake gets to Bailey in the backfield for a sack to make it third-and-10 from the Westlake 30-yard line. The Chaps will get the ball to start the second half so a stop by the Chaps here would be huge.

6:36 2Q: TOUCHDOWN NORTH SHORE: On fourth-and-goal, quarterback Kaleb Bailey runs up under center to take the snap and he spins his way into the end zone amid a pile of football players stacked up at the goal line. It’s a 1-yard touchdown run and with the PAT, we’re all tied up. Chaps 7, Mustangs 7
End 1Q: Westlake 7, North Shore 0. So far, the Chaps are controlling the line of scrimmage and got a big play on special teams to get a short field, resulting in the game’s only touchdown. The stiff wind is certainly making a difference, and the Mustangs will have the wind behind them in the second quarter
1:39 1Q: TOUCHDOWN WESTLAKE: Rees Wise takes it himself and rumbles into the end zone from 9 yards out for the first touchdown of the game. The Chaps convert the big play on special teams into points. PAT good. Chaps 7, Mustangs 0

8:16 1Q: North Shore lines up to punt on fourth-and-1 from their10-yard line and it’s a fake. A snap to the upback and it’s about an 8-yard gain for a fourth-down conversion. The Westlake coaching staff thought the okay clock ran out before North Shore got the snap off, but the officials let the play go.
Both teams punted on their first possessions, and then Westlake pinned North Shore near their 2-yard line for the Mustangs’ second possession
12:00 1Q: Westlake wins the toss and they’ll kick to North Shore to start the game. It’s a blustery day out at The Pfield with a cold front blowing in from the north.
