Quince Orchard, which is in the playoffs for the ninth straight year, outgained the host Owls by 393 yards to 319.  But Westminster managed to score more points against the vaunted Cougar defense in one quarter than any of Quince Orchard’s 12 previous opponents had been able to do in a single game.  The Owl defense was also stout, surrendering just 21 points to a team that had averaged 40.5 points per game.

“I hurt for our guys,” said an emotional Wilson. “We had an opportunity to win it.  It will be really tough saying goodbye to our seniors.  That’s what made this group special.”

The most prolific offense in Westminster history set several state and county records.  In addition to establishing a new state single-season mark for touchdown passes with 63, Kern’s 3,889 passing yards easily shattered the previous county record of 3,335 set by former Owl quarterback Kevin Clancy in 2005. 

Bean’s county-record 1,044 receiving yards were just three yards more than Owl great Ryan Payne accumulated seven years ago.  Clifton (1,029 yards) and Metcalf (989 yards) rank third and fourth all-time among the county’s single-season receiving yardage leaders.
