Round Rock players engulf the bell following a 67-21 win over Westwood.

Round Rock continued their district tour on Friday, Sep. 27 with a matchup versus Westwood. In the Battle of the Bell, Round Rock dominated on both sides of the ball picking up their second district win in a 67-21 win.

With a 67 point outburst, quarterback Seth Ford threw for 212 yards and three touchdowns that connected with senior wide receivers Collin Sullivan and Jordan Smart. Sullivan and Smart combined for more than 300 yards of offense and six touchdowns. Running back Israel Morgan picked up two scores off 185 yards rushing. All in all, the Dragon offense accounted for more than 600 yards of total offense and 67 points, the first time eclipsing the 60 point barrier this season. 

The Dragon defense held a Westwood offense that was averaging more than 40 points a game to a quiet 21 on Friday night. Round Rock pressured Westwood quarterback RJ Martinez, forcing five turnovers, a season high. Cornerback Daveyon Finch and strong safety Carson Otworth both forced fumbles, while cornerback Ty Dillon picked Martinez off late in the third quarter to put the nail in the coffin.

In the end, Round Rock was simply too much for the Warriors to handle. For the second straight year, the Dragons secured bragging rights and the bell. With a win on Friday night, Round Rock moved to 2-0 in district play, with a clash versus undefeated district titan Vandegrift to decide the district champion.
