Offense rules as Fishers upends Westfield

SportsFootballLifestyle and LeisureFishingLucas Oil Stadium

FISHERS - Westfield's hopes for their first winning season since 2007 rest a bit on the shoulders of a former Colts coach.

Larry Coyer who was the Colts defensive coordinator from 2009 till the middle of the 2010 season now serves as an assistant for the Shamrocks teams in 2012.

Last week Westfield caught the eye of many when they took a strong Avon team to the brink before finally falling at home. On Friday, they did the same by jumping out to an early lead on Fishers on the road.

But much to the Shamrock's dislike-and Coyer's as well-the Tigers proved to be too much when the game turned into an offensive shootout. Rick Wimmer's team overcame the early deficit to beat Westfield 40-30 on Friday evening to improve to 2-1 on the season.

After an early field goal by Alex Sahakian gave Fishers the lead on the first drive but Westfield struck back quickly. Johnny Crawford completed a strong Shamrock drive with a 24-yard touchdown to give them the 7-3 lead.

But slowly the Tigers pulled away in the remaining minutes of the first half, using two more Sahakian field goals to jump out to a 19-7 halftime lead.

Fishers then turned it up in the second half, scoring a trio of touchdowns to jump out to an insurmountable lead and pick up the win. 

The Tigers will face conference rival Avon next Friday night at 8:30 P.M. at Lucas Oil Stadium. Westfield will return home to face Brownsburg.
