PITTSBURGH — The Westinghouse Bulldogs completed their undefeated regular season with a 52-0 trouncing of the winless Brashear Bulls.
Brashear senior running back Shawn Solomon crossed 1,000 rushing yards on the season with a 37 yard tote on the Bulls’ opening possession.
But the drive went nowhere, as Bulldogs’ senior cornerback Deshaun Blackwell picked off a third-down pass by Bulls’ quarterback Donovan Meadows.
Westinghouse quarterback Keyshawn Morsillo launched a 47 yard touchdown pass to receiver Davon Jones on the next play, opening a 6-0 lead.
Bulldogs defensive back Ty Abram returned a Meadows’ pick 24 yards for a touchdown and a 13 point lead on the following drive.
The Bulldogs quickly forced a punt and continued to pile on. Morsillo connected with senior Sincere Smith for 45 yards to take a 20-0 first quarter lead. Brashear’s ensuing drive stalled at midfield, and Blackwell recorded his second pick of the first quarter on a fourth down deep shot.
Smith scored another receiving touchdown early in the second quarter, but a missed extra point kept the lead at 26-0.
Brashear got their best scoring opportunity of the game when they recovered a Morsillo fumble at the Westinghouse 9, but the Bulldogs’ defense held them out of the end zone for four downs.
Bulls’ corner Jayden Atkins saved a touchdown when he picked off Morsillo at the two, but Brashear’s offense turned it over on downs.
Westinghouse running back Shaun Robinson cashed in with a two-yard carry that made it 32-0 after a failed two-point attempt.
Brashear fumbled at their own 37 with :17 to go in the half, but Morsillo threw a pick on a Hail Mary attempt.
Even with a running clock, Westinghouse made it 38-0 just 1:40 into the second half on a 12 yard carry by running back Khalil Taylor.
Robinson added a 43 yard rush and a 1 yard touchdown to his resume on the Bulldogs’ next drive.
The scoring concluded with a zig-zagging 23 yard run by sophomore quarterback Khalil Green.
Westinghouse moves to 7-0 and will face Perry at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21 to open the City League playoffs. Brashear’s season comes to a close with an 0-8 record.
