But as the playoffs have arrived the Shamrocks have showed their playoff moxie and are once again on a deep run into the Class 5A playoffs.

A week after taking down the No. 1 team on the class-the McCutcheon Mavericks-on the road 28-7 Westfield once again made quick work of their opponent from the Lafayette area as they beat Harrison 45-24.

Jake Gilbert’s team wasted little time putting the game out of reach as they scored 21 points in the first quarter and then pushed their advantage to 28 on an Elvin Caldwell touchdown midway through the second.

Westfield now moves onto the Regional round where they will host 9-2 Fort Wayne Snider next Friday night.
