On Madison’s ensuing possession, QB Ry Yates would find teammate Brendan Ryka for an 83-yard touchdown reception. A successful PAT evened the score at 7. Later in the quarter Westfield was again back in business when Isaiah Daniels ran in from 65 yards and Westfield now led 14-7.

After a scoreless 3rd quarter , Madison would score with 4:58 to play in the game, pulling the Warhawks to within a touchdown, 21-14.

Madison falls to (4-3) (0-1) while Westfield improves to (6-0) (1-0). Madison will host Chantilly (6-0) on 10-18. Westfield will play at Oakton (2-4).
