Lake Travis swamps Westlake, winning 51-3 to advance in postseason

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.”
