By Hank Krause

The Akron-Westfield Westerners’ record fell to 0-2 following a 14-6 loss to the Lawton-Bronson Eagles at home Sept. 6.

A-W didn’t start too bad as they started the game on their own 40-yard line. A-W drove the ball to the Eagle’s 17 before they fumbled the ball away. The teams both tried to get something going but to no avail. The first quarter ended at 0-0.

Later, A-W fumbled the ball away at their own 18, and the Eagles recovered. LB ran Rica Garcia five times in a row before he scored from the one-yard line to take a 6-0 lead at half.
