Spring Westfield completed its season in perfect fashion Thursday, topping Spring Dekaney 28-14 before a raucous crowd at George Stadium to close out the regular season with a 10-0 record. 

With starting quarterback William Dedon hurt Westfield turned to Courtland Greenwood, who was spectacular, throwing for one touchdown and running for two more.

“We’ve got two good quarterbacks,” Westfield head coach Corby Meekins said.  “”(Greenwood) has been preparing himself all year and when he got his opportunity… Next man up.  I’m very proud of him.”

The game had the earmarks of a shootout in the first half with both teams lighting up the scoreboard.  Dekaney struck first on a five yard D’Juan Hines touchdown strike to Linell Bonner. 

Westfield struck back with a pair of touchdowns.  First was a one yard plunge by Greenwood, the second was a six yard Greenwood pass to Jordan Jones.

Dekaney tied it up on a perfectly thrown nine yard touchdown pass from Hines to Richardo Barnett. 

Greenwood capped the scoring in the first half and gave Westfield the lead again when he scooped up a fumbled handoff to Emmitt Raleigh and followed him through the hole, bouncing it outside and into the end zone for a 24 yard touchdown.

That score not only ended the scoring in the first half, it was the last offensive touchdown scored in the game as both defenses held the other team in check.

The last score came on a punt attempt when Dekaney snapped the ball over Hines’ head and into the end zone.  Jason Reid fell on it for Westfield to clinch the win.
