Previously unbeaten Westfield came on to Hamilton Southeastern's home turf Friday and offered an early challenge to the Royals - stop them on a fourth down, or allow the first possession of the game to remain in Shamrocks' hands.

Westfield coach Jake Gilbert decided to go for it on a fourth down and a long one yard at their own 43 yard line, but the Royals' defensive line had other ideas, stopping Westfield quarterback Cameron Nance for no gain and took over possession.

That would be the theme of the night, as Hamilton Southeastern stopped Westfield on three other fourth and short plays, and kept defensive pressure on all night in a 13-0 Homecoming victory over the Shamrocks.

"The kids buckled down to get that play," Hamilton Southeastern coach Scott May said. "It says a lot for them to go out there and get that early stop. It set the tone for us. And, we took it personal since they went for it in their own territory. Our kids wanted that stop, and they got it."

Defense was the tone of the game. It was a scoreless game late in the first half, until Hamilton Southeastern senior running back Jackson Sweeney took a pitch from quarterback Kody Sparks and scampered for a four-yard sweep around the left side to give the Royals a 6-0 lead with 1:17 to play in the second quarter. Tyler Melser added on the extra point.

The game started as bad as it could for Westfield. The first play of the game star running back Nate Froelich went down with an injury. He managed just two carries for 15 yards in the game.

With that, Westfield couldn't get anything going offensively.

"That was tough," Gilbert said. "First play of the game. That hurt - seven yards a carry right there. I did expect it to be a low-scoring, defensive battle, but I did think would score."

The score remained 7-0 Southeastern until 3:13 to play in the fourth quarter when Kody Sparks fired a 58-yard touchdown strike to Nick Mutchner.

"We went for that vertical play and got it," May said. "Give Sparks time, and he is going to be tough. It was a great pass and a great catch."

Hamilton Southeastern outgained Westfield 77 yards to 65 yards on the ground. Sweeney led the way with 69 yards on 19 carries. Shamrock quarterback Cameron Nance had 14 rushes for 37 yards.

Westfield (4-1) battles Brownsburg, and Hamilton Southeastern (2-3) will play Zionsville.
