In the first postseason meeting between neighboring football rivals Lake Travis and Westlake, the Cavaliers proved that not much has changed in the past two months.
Lake Travis (13-1) rolled to a Class 6A, Division I state-quarterfinal victory over the Chaparrals, winning 51-3 Friday night at Reeves Stadium to post its 10th straight victory in the series that began in 2006. The Cavaliers advanced to a state semifinal and will face Humble Atascocita (12-1) on Dec. 10 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
The Cavaliers’ victory Friday echoed their 49-7 romp past Westlake on Oct. 7 in a District 25-6A game. In both contests, the Chaparrals (11-3) played without star quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who was sidelined by an injury. The 48-point loss marked Westlake’s worst defeat in its 46-year football history, surpassing the the Chaps’ 42-point loss on Oct. 7.
“We have bigger goals than just this win,” said Cavaliers receiver Cade Green, a Wisconsin Badgers pledge. “We have weapons all over the field, and we have great coaches and a great game plan. We just have to come out and execute.”
