The Wolverines traveled to Reading on a high ready to play Wayland for a berth in the Super Bowl, but the Warriors came out strong, using their speed and capitalizing on Westwood's mistakes to give themselves a comfortable lead throughout the game.
They'd been here before. Maybe it wasn't a playoff game, but just five days ago the Westwood football team played a game in which the winner would get to continue playing for another week, while the loser would have nine months to think about what went wrong. When the Wolverines stepped out on that field they had the confidence that they could beat Wayland and play in Saturday's Division 3 Super Bowl, where they would face the winner of tonight's game between Pembroke and Sharon. They were in their own comfort zone. But Wayland knocked them out of that comfort zone early. The Warriors were strong defensively, giving Westwood some difficulty getting going.

The Westwood High School varsity football team is ready to take the field.
It'll be a whole new game on the Westwood Wolverines' football field this fall. Coming off an 8-4 record last season, the team is now under the leadership of new Head Coach Ed Mantie, who is coming out of five years as the offensive coordinator at Weston High School to fill the shoes of former Head Coach Paul Hallion. But Mantie's been working hard with the team to get ready for the new season. "Holliston's the biggest competitor until someone knocks them off the block," Mantie said. "They've been the team to beat for the last couple of years. I know that Medway's going to have a real good team this year, Hopkinton the same thing. The way the set up is you have to win four football games, they're going to be hard games for us." Captains …
