Defeating Tri-Valley League rival Westwood on its home turf is always a bit sweeter for the Holliston football program than most victories.
In the 51st meeting between the programs and the 11th over the last five seasons, Holliston leaned on its patented ‘war’ offensive package to build a 21-0 first-half cushion in a 41-7 win on a misty Friday night.
Westwood (1-2) managed to come back from a 20-point deficit last season to beat Holliston, 36-34, and gave the Panthers a scare by scoring with six seconds remaining in the first half of this contest.
Yet the Division 5 power had no intentions of another collapse. Holliston responded with touchdowns on its first three possessions of the second half, opening a virtually insurmountable 41-7 advantage.
