It took nine games but Akron-Westfield broke into the win column for the first time in 2019 on Oct. 25 at home.

A-W played Marcus- Meridan-Cleghorn-Remsen Union, otherwise known as MMCRU. The Royals were also winless this season so something had to give.

A-W handed the Royals a 45-6 pounding. The Royals are a very young team and also very small, but you have to play with what you have.

A-W scored early and often as Levi Hemmelrick opened it up with a three-yard pass play from Cade Walkingstick.

A-W recovered a Royal fumble at their own 18. A-W started a 10-play drive to cap it off with a nine-yard run by Hemmelrick.

A-W forced the Royals to punt and took over the ball at midfield to start a short drive. Cade Walkingstick found Jack Anderson good for 40 yards to the Royal’s 10. Walkingstick ran the last 10 yards to make it 19-0.

Late in the half, Cade Walkingstick again ran for three yards to make it 26-0 at half.

Daytona Foley, who missed most of the season, got into the act and ran for an 11-yard touchdown to move the score to 32-0.

The Royals tried to get something going but fumbled the ball deep in their own end. Hemmelrick recovered the ball for another A-W score.

A-W’s final scoring play was by Jack Anderson, who danced the ball in from six yards out at the end of three quarters.

The Royals averted a shutout with 5:47 left on the clock. Brenin Stodden found Ruben Bryssinck for a 55-yard touchdown pass play.

Defensively, A-W was again led by Logan Smith, Cole Moffatt and Tanner Derochie. A-W held the Royals to 10 yards rushing while gaining 189 for themselves. A-W ended the season at 1-9 so football season 2019 is now finished!
