Westinghouse Rumbles Past Perry 45-6, Advances to 5th Straight City League Championship



PITTSBURGH — The Westinghouse Bulldogs advanced to their fifth straight City League Championship game with a 45-6 win over the Perry Commodores on Friday night at Cupples Stadium on the South Side.

Westinghouse’s dominant ground game controlled the game from the opening whistle. The Bulldogs’ defense — led by edge rusher Michael Richardson’s two sacks and a touchdown — flocked to the ball and stifled drives.

Perry advanced into Westinghouse territory on the opening possession with help from a pair of personal foul penalties. 

The Bulldogs’ defense didn’t break, however, and they forced a turnover on downs.

Westinghouse responded by rushing for 65 yards on five plays, capped by running back Shaun Robinson’s 14-yard touchdown. The Bulldogs elected to go for two after a Perry false start on the PAT, but were unsuccessful.

Senior RB/SS Kahlil Taylor sparked the Bulldogs’ offense on their next drive. Taylor began the possession by bouncing outside for a 32 yard carry, then ended it with a touchdown from 20 yards out off a screen pass by QB Keyshawn Morsillo. A bad snap on the extra point attempt held Westinghouse’s lead to 12-0.

Taylor showed off his two-way ability when he picked off a red zone pass by Perry quarterback Ahmad Arrington and returned it for 61 yards. Morsillo returned the favor, throwing a goal line interception off a shovel pass. Moments later Arrington fumbled on a strip sack, recovered by Richardson for a touchdown and a 19-0 halftime lead.

Westinghouse began at Perry’s 38 yard line out of the half via a long return and a horse collar tackle penalty.

Taylor added his second touchdown of the evening soon after, this one from three yards out, and Westinghouse took a 25-0 lead after the kick doinked off the left upright.

Morsillo passed to senior receiver Sincere Smith for a 7-yard touchdown—and a 32-0 lead—to open the fourth quarter.

Ty Abrams added another Bulldogs pick, setting up a 25 yard touchdown run to make it 38-0.

Arrington broke the ice with just over eight minutes to go, dashing 82 yards for the score on a QB keeper. A failed two-point conversion kept the deficit at 38-6.

Kahlil Green stretched the Bulldogs’ lead to 45-6 with a one yard tote inside five minutes. Taymir O’Neal dove for a pick with the clock running inside two minutes to seal the Bulldogs’ victory.

Westinghouse (8-0) will face Allderdice (4-5) in the City League Championship for the third consecutive year at 4pm on Saturday, October 29.

Perry’s (3-5) season comes to a close.
